No, they are Christian. Their society follows the teachings of the Bible. They believe in living a simple, basic lifestyle. Adults must go through an adult baptism to become a member of the Amish church. They also believe in a close knit community with the separation from popular culture. Separation between church and state is important. They do not want politics to interfere with their way of life. Also, members of the Amish church are pacifists.
The roots of the Amish church started in 1525 with the Protestant Reformation during the Anabaptist Movement.. Jakob Ammann, the founder of the Amish church, started the church in 1693 with their own branch of Anabaptism in Switzerland and Eastern France. All of the Amish communities in America were started there.
