The Archives of the Reformed Church in America
Looking back...to see ahead
The Archives of the Reformed Church in America represents the enduring memory of the church. Documents, videos, sound recordings, and computer data keep a record of our life and mission as a people of God. They are the valuable permanent records of the RCA.
The Archives is housed at the Gardner A. Sage Library of New Brunswick Theological Seminary. Occupying over a half-mile of shelf space, the holdings date from the 1630s, with correspondence between the New Netherlands dominies and the Classis of Amsterdam, and lead up to present-era records from RCA congregations and governing bodies and the RCA's many mission fields.

A Peek into the Archives
Why Do We Keep Archives?
The Archives provides a record of God's interaction with God's people in the RCA.
The Archives serves as a witness, over time, to our faithfulness to the call of God in mission.
The Archives serves as a foundation for future mission efforts to build on the successes--and learn from the mistakes--of the past.
The Archives' records are not antiquarian curiosities; they assure us that tomorrow will have a yesterday.
