DO HUTTERITES BELIEVE IN BEING BORN AGAIN?

Written by: Paul Wipf on Saturday, March 29th, 2014

The Lord also said, "Truly I tell you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God." (John 3:5) If one is born again he can see the kingdom but he cannot enter it unless he is born of water and the Spirit. We know that no one can really see and truly value the Kingdom of God until he is born again, born from above. (John 3:3, Matthew 13:44-46) And no one can actually enter the Kingdom of God until he has repented of his sins and has his clean heart immersed in the Holy Spirit of God. (John 3:....

I read the email twice, to make sure I understood this right. Yes, this really is a scholarship opportunity in Germany. I could either let it go or Carpe Diem. I decided to seize the day and soon realized, sometimes when you walk through an open door, God has even more blessings in store!

Glimpses of Hutterite Life

Reprinted with the permission of Author Dave Hubert


The Hutterian Brethren living on the Great Plains of western North America are much studied but little understood.

And while this glorious history lies behind them, the contributions they ....

Michael Sattler’s Memorial

Written by: Mark Waldner on Friday, May 17th, 2013

This article was originally published in German in July of 2012.

In July 2012, I was fortunate enough to be selected to receive a scholarship to attend a 2-week German language course at the Goethe Institute in Schwäbisch-Hall in Germany. During this time, our group of teachers had one Saturday free. I decided to visit Rottenburg am Neckar, where a memorial for the martyr Michael Sattler was erected some years ago. Michael Sattler was an Anabaptist who lived and worked during the 16th century.
Rottenburg am Neckar is situated about 130 km ....
