Bible - The Amish see the Bible as the inspired, inerrant Word of God.

The Pennsylvania Amish are a private people who believe that God has called them to a simple life of faith, discipline, dedication and humility.

They believe that the Amish religion should be practiced, not displayed, and translated into daily living rather than focused on tangible symbols or complicated religious rituals.

Baptism - As Anabaptists, the Amish practice adult baptism, or what they call "believer's baptism," because the person choosing baptism is old enough to decide what they believe in.

In Amish baptisms, a deacon pours a cup of water into the bishop's hands and onto the candidate's head three times, for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

This program follows two men who let us into their private world because although their Christian faith is strong they begin questioning the all-powerful bishops' authority and rules.
