    From the link in the OP - the answer is yes
    and stated this: "They rejected infant baptism and propelled a confidence in pacifism. They don’t recognize the Baptist statute of justification by faith alone rather they emphasize a 'life of good works.' "

    The extended family of Ana-Baptists are Quakers, Mennonites, Amish and ect
    Very little in common with current Baptists

    Menno Simon is the father of the Mennonites, Amish and Hutterites. The Amish and Hutterites are offshoots who thought Mennonites were straying off the path. Today's Mennonites run a broad spectrum with Mennonite Brethren being very close to Traditionalist Baptists.
    Most people lump all groups who refuse infant baptism into the the Anabaptist movement. Few realize that Baptists are better traced through Calvin with a rejection of infant baptism coming over time.

    I think Baptists are associated with Anabaptists is shared theology. Baptists are not Reformed. They are not Anabaptists. But they owe a debt to both in terms of doctrine.

    An Anabaptist could be considered a Baptist, but not the other way around.

    Probably the most preeminent Baptist Historian of our day. He certainly is for the SBC

    That would be correct - as Roger Williams - who was an Anglican priest, also believed in Believers baptism - left Masss and went to Rhode Island to start a Baptist church. -- churches in Mass became Congregational.

    At a 150th anniversary celebration of the first Russian to be Scripturally baptized, a Russian Evangelical -Christinban Baptist historian divided Baptists into three movements.
    • Anglo-American
    • German/Continental
    • Slavic/Russian
    The first is the group we are all familiar with. Thanks to the efforts of missionaries its influernc is world wide. The second's influence is mostly confine3d to Europe. The third is rooted in the German Baptist tradition with influence s from the British Plymouth Brethren. It developed its disticntive characteristics due to the isolation im[osed by the Soviet regieme.

    Justification by faith ALONE is unscriptural. James 2:24

    A 'life of good works' should definitely be emphasized. Romans 2:5-10

    Yes, and was credited for the founding of a Baptist church. Which he later abandoned.
