Anabaptist (s), Anabaptists (pl) (nouns)
A member of a movement of the Protestant Reformation who believed in adult baptism, freedom of religious beliefs, separation of church and state, the rejection of war, and other beliefs that were rather advanced for their time: "Anabaptists believed that infants were not punishable for sin because they had no awareness of good and evil and thus could not yet exercise free will, repent, and accept baptism."

"Denying the validity of infant baptism, Anabaptists accepted adult baptism, which was regarded as a second baptism by those outside the group who identified them as Anabaptists (from the Greek for rebaptizers)."

"Anabaptists sought to restore the institutions and spirit of the primitive church."
