The Bruderhof is an international communal movement of families and singles who seek to put into action Christís command to love God and neighbor.
Like the first Christians described in Acts 2 and 4, we have been called to a way of life in which all are of one heart and soul, no one possesses anything, and everything is shared in common. We also draw instruction and inspiration from the Reformation era Anabaptists who revived the early Christian example of discipleship in full community.
Our communal movement began in 1920 in Germany when a group of Christians, seeking answers to the devastation of post-war society, founded a community based on the belief that Jesusís words in the Gospels are a guide to daily living. Today the Bruderhof consists of over 2,600 men, women, and children living in twenty-three communal settlements of varying sizes on four continents.
