The Believer’s Baptism
To start Amish church membership, the adults between 16 and 23 must have a baptism. This is required before they can get married, and it must be done through the church. Then, they have to marry inside the faith for it to be appropriate.
Rules of the Ordnung
Instead of a bible, the Amish live by the Ordnung, which is a set of rules. They are reviewed two times a year by church members, and they outline daily living practices, dress codes, and limitations, such as no cars, phones, and power-line electricity.
