A Church Free from Sin

“For the circle of Conrad Grebel [An Anabaptist leader], as for Muntzer, believer’s baptism was the one key reform for the Church. If only those who gave evidence of a firm and mature faith were baptized, then the Church would be free from all kinds of impurities. Believer’s baptism would be the effective sword used to separate the true Christian from Christendom.” (Hughes Oliphant Old, The Shaping of the Reformed Baptismal Rite in the 16thCentury, p. 91)
