Beachy Amish What Makes Them different?

The Beachy Amish are an Anabaptist church which formed in 1927 in Pennsylvania. The Beachy Amish church is also known as the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship, reflecting Mennonite influences. Some argue that the Beachy Amish are more rightly described as a Mennonite group. Beachy Amish have founded missions around the world, hold services in church buildings, and Sunday Schools to name a few things. In A History of the Amish, Amish historian Steven M. Nolt explains that the Beachy Amish movement emerged in the Old Order Amish community on the southern border of Somerset County, Pennsylvania over three decades.
