Anabaptist Association of
Australia and New Zealand

What is Anabaptism?

Anabaptism is a radical Christian renewal movement that emerged in Europe during the sixteenth-century Reformation. Whilst Anabaptism was a grass roots movement with diverse expressions in its early development, its enduring legacy usually has included the following:

  • baptism upon profession of faith
  • a view of the church in which membership is voluntary and members are accountable to the Bible and to each other
  • a commitment to the way of peace and other teachings of Jesus as a rule for life
  • separation of church and state
  • worshipping congregations which create authentic community and reach out through vision and service
Background to the Association
The initiative for the establishment of the Association came out of a meeting in Tasmania in May 1995 of Christians from a variety of denominational backgrounds who had been influenced in a variety of ways by the Anabaptist tradition. To provide a means of building on the contacts established at the meeting the Anabaptist Network of Australia and New Zealand was formed which became the Anabaptist Association of Australia and New Zealand following its incorporation in 1998.
