A Theological question

Do the Amish believe in the concept of Hell?    I live in the South, and we've been debating the topic umm...vigorously in the office of late.  I was curious about the Anabaptists generally and figured this was the place to ask that question.

Thanks.

Well, as an Amish person, I can unequivocably state that the Amish defnitely believe in Hell.  Article 18 of the Dortrecht Confession of Faith which deals with the Resurrection of the Dead states that the unrighteous dead shall be cast into outer darkness where their worm dieth not and the flame is never quenched.  It is often preached in Amish church: "God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reapeth."
