Beachy Amish Mennonites

To what religious group do the Beachy Amish Mennonites belong? The Beachys are part of the Anabaptists, a Christian religion begun in Switzerland in 1525. Other Anabaptist groups include the Amish, Mennonites, Brethren, and Hutterites. Anabaptists are neither Catholic nor Protestant, though they are often categorized as a Protestant group by writers unfamiliar with Anabaptist history and doctrine. They were started in June 1927 and are 81 years old as of June 2008. Click here for information and pictures.
