The Mennonites, a Protestant group descended from the Anabaptists, meets in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, and adopts the 18 articles of the Dordrecht Confession of Faith.

This becomes a key document in the Radical Reformation, a movement that rejects even the Lutheran Reformation as corrupted and which thus abandons "visible" churches and church institutions in favor of "invisible" churches — basically, a small community of believers.

The Dordrecht Confession of Faith remains important for several Christian groups that are descended from the earliest Anabaptist, including modern Anabaptists, Mennonites, and Amish.
