All Christians are called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith).  ___________

...ways and beliefs that many modern Americans wish they could recapture. 

The Amish keep surprising their technology-programmed neighbors by keeping alive ways and beliefs that many modern Americans wish they could recapture.  In this colorful, updated documentary, John Ruth takes us sympathetically into the Amish mindset.  Dr. John A. Hostetler, author of Amish Society, comments on the survival of an alternative to the kind of world we have made. 

...changes are made very carefully... 

As the Amish increase in numbers, some of them migrate from homesteads in Pennsylvania toward more open farmland.  Those staying where the land is to crowded to farm have developed an amazing variety of cottage industries.  But all such changes are made very carefully, in order not to sacrifice spiritual covenant and community for the sake of convenience.   ___________________________
