Who are we?
We are a small group of believers who desire to build a community church in Loveville, Maryland. First and foremost, we are Christians- "followers of Christ" or "little Christs". It is only because of Jesus and the demonstration of love and atonement that he provided for us on Calvary that we are who we are today.
Therefore, we are also non-denominational in that we do not follow any certain group, man, or creed. Our desire is that our group would be Christian, our man would be Jesus, and that our creed would be the Bible.
Following Jesus leads his believers to make practical steps in obedience
to him. For us this obedience has formed a walk and mindset that
further distinguishes us as Anabaptist. The Anabaptists were a group of believers that began in the 1500's. Some of its leaders were former Catholics and the movement traces itself back to the early stages of Protestantism. Early on in the Protestant Reformation, the Anabaptists broke off from the Protestants because they saw that although the Protestants were making biblical changes, they were not willing to completely follow the word of God. One issue that characterized the Anabaptists and gave them their name is the issue of adult believer's baptism. The Anabaptists held that their prior baptism as infants in the Catholic church was not valid and that baptism should be administered to believers only. In obedience to this belief, the Anabaptists baptized those who had been previously baptized as infants and were thus called by their opposers Anabaptists or "re-baptizers". This movement suffered heavy persecution by Catholics and Protestants. Ultimately, the Anabaptists formed the Mennonite, Amish, and Brethren groups but their influence can be felt all across evangelicalism today. We hold in common many doctrines and practices of the conservative Anabaptists today.
