Fostering Reformed Partnerships

Worldwide

The WRF vision is to live out one of the clearly stated but often neglected themes of the great Reformed confessions of the church. The Westminster Confession of Faith (XXV, 2) affirms that there is "a visible universal church which consists of all those throughout the world that profess the true religion." The Belgic Confession (Article 27) emphasizes that "the one single catholic or universal church . . . is not confined, bound, or limited to a certain place or certain persons. But it is spread and dispersed throughout the entire world.

While specific regional or national expressions of the universal church do, in many ways, embody characteristics of the Body of Christ, there are other characteristics of that Body which transcend those expressions. It is those other characteristics that the WRF seeks to set forth in its commitments and in its activities.

What Does It Mean to Be "Reformed?

The Theology Commission of the WRF, chaired by Andrew McGowan, has taken on the task of defining the meaning of the theological term "Reformed Theology."  Members of the Commission from around the world have held two in-person meetings, in 2016 and 2017, and another meeting is scheduled for 2018.  This project was undertaken after one of our organizational members, a seminary, determined to remove the word "Reformed" from its official name because of confusion about the meaning of that word. Since the word is used in our own name, we felt it especially urgent to make clear what we believe is involved in its meaning. The project is being funded by designated contributions and the final conclusions reached by the Theology Commission will be posted on this website.
