We envision the Global Anabaptist Wiki to become a major site for primary sources related to the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition: from the 16th century to the present and in a wide variety of languages. Please post any public domain sources you think might be of interest to other users of the Global Anabaptist Wiki. Our staff will help to sort and organize source material into appropriate categories as it is added.

  • To learn about contributing sources, start at the about sources page.

Like all wiki-based projects, this is a collaborative venture that relies on the local expertise of many people.

Jesus Village Church (JVC) is one of two Anabaptist affiliated churches in South Korea. Unlike other global Anabaptist communities outside of Europe and North America, JVC is not the result of a mission plant. Rather, JVC began out three years of intensive study by Korean Christian professionals as they tried to rediscover the New Testament Church and implement it in a Korean context.
