An Amish Man Finds Grace

Ephraim Stoltzfus and his wife, Amanda, grew up in the Amish community. Soon after getting married, they realized there was something wrong with what they believed. They began looking closer at Scripture, started attending Bible studies, and were eventually baptized outside of the Amish church. Having broken several rules by doing this, they were excommunicated from their church and shunned by family and friends.

After this, Ephraim and Amanda decided to stay as close to the Amish culture as possible so that they could continue to minister to those who remained in the community they were forced to leave behind.

Watch as Ephraim tells how he came to know grace in Christ and why it allowed him to leave everything he knew in order to follow Jesus.


  • Praise God brother, the road will not be easy but then He never said it would be. As we travel this road of life it seemed to me things got worse, well it was because I’ve always loved God and knew that Jesus died for my sins, I continued to sin and knew it was wrong, I got sick to death but I knew that God would not let me die in t he state of sin I was in. I am so thankful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. When we study his word it falls into place, but you must study. I am still sick, but I am so thankful that I know what I know now. I am much better then I was at first when I go I will be ready in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

  • Ephraim:
    After watching two of your youtube videos, I rejoice to hear the Gospel you are preaching, and to hear that the Amish are finding grace. Working in the English world, the biggest problem that I encounter are young people who use the gospel as an excuse to sin sexually, and even try to get the church to accept their homosexual friends. It is important to understand that the Amish culture and community is a blessing from God, not something that earns God’s blessing.
