Plan of Salvation ______________ 

Sisters and Brothers ____________


To a world of fear Anabaptists introduced freedom...a crime punished by death.

J. Ron Byler, Jim L. Bowman,          D. Michael Hostetler, Joel Kauffman

The year is 1525.  Michael and Margaretha Sattler have fled their religious orders.  

Their quest: restore the church to the purity of its early days when communities of believers practiced peace, compassion and sacrificial love.

The Sattlers join a group called the Anabaptists and together challenge the 1,000 year control of the Church by the State.  

They call for baptism to once again become, not a mark of citizenship, but an adult and voluntary decision to follow Christ.  

As their movement grows, so does the determination of their enemies to stop any means necessary.

In 1527, Michael is burned at the stake and Margaretha drowned.  

But their movement survives and today is carried on by the Mennonites, Mennonite Brethren, Brethren in Christ, the Hutterites, and the Amish.

Tell others about Jesus:

 We who are Christians are all 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). ____________________________

"The Radicals is a call to reach across ethnic and racial lines and practice what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.

I heartily recommend this film to anyone who seriously wants to follow Christ in their life."
