Over the last 1,900 years of church history Catholics & Protestants alike have been unable to kill, burn or exterminate all the Anabaptists, and to their oft dismay, God is continually giving increase to the members of His body upon whom He bestows more abundant honor through the cross of Christ (1 Cor.12:23). The Anabaptists Church is growing and spreading a truly New Testament body of believers upon the Pauline example across the globe. We are not an organization that has to prove a lineage on paper with ink, but are those 1,900 year old "lively stones...built up a spiritual house, and an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 2:5), that are new every morning.
True and honest church history reveals that the body of Christ has always been formed in every nation from all aspects of sinful life and religiously sinful life: just common sinners that through the longsuffering and forbearacne of God grow tired of their wickedness and sin, and by the hand of God have come to a place of "repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ" (Acts 20:21/ Hebrews 12:17). The Anabaptists have always come from "the highways" and hedgerows (Matthew 22:8, 9) If you are saved and tired of the present day religious apostasy in every denomination of professing Christianity, come join us in this wonderful return to Biblical devotion to Christ and service within His body.
It is more than a name or profession. It is the sacrificial life of Jesus Christ manifest in the flesh of the children of God who daily choose to live godly in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:12). Being Anabaptists is a daily life in Jesus Christ, that openly "bears about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh" (2 Corinthians 4:10,11), for which we were appointed thereunto (1 Thessalonians 3:3). Anabaptism is that life of Christ that baptizes you daily into the death of Christ (Romans 6:1-4).
Love Jesus Christ with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, with the courage & sacrificial devotion and charity to live like it every day in this present evil world. We are NOT Baptists or Mennonite, or any illegitimate offspring thereof. We are Anabaptists and make no apologies to any for being so in Christ Jesus our Lord. Though you may not know all that your church believes about the Bible it does not live by, the Anabaptists Church Worldwide will gladly and readily show you what we believe, live and die by on a daily basis!
