The Mennonites were named for Menno Simmons, a 16th century Dutch leader. They are descendants of the 16th century religious radicals who were known as Anabaptists. They wanted to reserve the rite of baptism for those adults who had made a con[s]cientious decision to accept Jesus as Lord. Because their baptism beliefs differed radically from the Protestant & Catholic belief in infant baptism, [they] were prosecuted all over Europe. In the 1680's the Mennonites came to Pennsylvania. They are plain people who reject the worldly folly of adorning themselves or their property in vanity. They lead simple lives in accordance with the Holy Scriptures.
