Balthasar Hubmaier strives to restore the Urgemeinde as originally recorded in the book of Acts. He founded a congregation which consisted only of believers. The sacrament of baptism is exclusively intended for believers, as a confirmation of their belief in Jesus Christ. Believers are allowed to partake of Holy Communion as a supper / sacrament symbolizing remembrance and love. Hubmaier also introduced disciplinary measures to maintain Christian standards. Hubmaier moved through various phases of development, both as a human being and as a theologian. This development of Hubmaier is studied with particular reference to the Cognitive Dissonance Theory of Leon Festinger.
