*Members of the conservative Christian church came to Pennsylvania in the early 18th century to escape persecution in Europe for their Anabaptist beliefs.
*In 1693, a Swiss bishop named Jacob Amman broke from the Mennonite church. His followers were called the "Amish". Although the two groups have split several times, the Amish and Mennonite churches share the same beliefs concerning baptism, non-resistance, and basic Bible doctrines.
*All districts base their religions on a literal interpretation of the bible and an unwritten set of rules called the Ordnung.
*The ideals are maintained by keeping all work, play worship, commerce, and friendship within the Amish orbit.
* They also believe in not using electricity and cars (that is why you see them only in wagons and horses) and if they do use electricity.. it's disrespecting their god and they get punished
