Subject: [BRE] Mennonite/Anabaptism questions
Date: Thu, 11 Jan 2007 21:17:17 -0500
The primary thing that splintered Mennonites stemmed from adherence to
different confessions. This was inevitable due to their anti-creedal
stance. What separated the Brethren from the Mennonites was the mode of
baptism, sprinkling verses immersion. Anabaptism was, of course, a movement
that influenced both Mennonite and Brethren circles.
As far as the German Reformed church is concerned, read the history info
found on the following link to find a key ancestor of our past:

Otterbein and Martin Boehm. Hope this helps!
