The Reformed Church in America's General Synod often speaks on important social and ethical issues. Careful and prayerful biblical and theological reflection shapes the church's response to current issues. "Reformed and always reforming," the church seeks to know the mind of Christ as it strives to be faithful in a changing, complex world.
General Synod papers provide guidance to the members of the church and are a part of the church's witness in society.
These reports and study papers were originally presented at General Synod, the RCA's annual church-wide assembly. Many were produced by commissions, task groups, and church agencies in response to a request by synod to study an issue in greater depth, often for a year or longer, so a future General Synod could make informed decisions.
