Gemeinde in the sense of the Amish way of life ruled by the Ordnung, it functions as a description for certain Amish congregations often centering around a church and sharing some local social structures like church service.
Gemeinde also means, approximately, the parish or the community. This term in its theological usage, means more than just a community or parish. It has no English equivalent except among Mormons, who call it a ward. It encompasses the meaning of parish assembly (as a group entity) but also the congregation as a koinonia (Greek) or fellowship of believers.
