Why a Ministry to the Amish?
Amish people seem peaceful and separated from a world of murder and divorce; to a large extent they are right. Crime among the Amish culture is often minimal.
From a physical stand point, the Amish culture looks great. Outsiders admire them for their hard work, craftsmanship, family and community values. They are also known for their innocence, honesty , separation from the world and desire to live plain and simple lives.
From a spiritual stand point, less then ten percent of the total population understands the one true gospel of Jesus Christ as given to us in John chapter 3. The majority of Amish people focus on outward appearance, traditions, and church rules for salvation. Their belief in Jesus Christ is often head knowledge and part of a long list of do's and don'ts. The mindset is: if I want to get to God, I have to do what I can; God fill in the rest.
Jesus Christ alone can save a person from their sins!
