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.
