The Reformed Church in America is a confessional church. This means that, as a denomination, we affirm specific statements of belief called creeds and confessions. (Read more about the significance of confessions here.)
Along with most Christian churches, the Reformed Church accepts three creeds that were written in the first few centuries after Jesus's death: the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. In addition, four Standards of Unity tell what the Reformed Church believes: the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dort, and the Confession of Belhar. In 1978, the Reformed Church approved Our Song of Hope as a contemporary statement of faith.
Full texts for these creeds, confessions, and statements of faith can be found below.
