What the Bible Teaches
We at Rehoboth Reformed Church understand that the historic creeds and confessions known as the Three Forms of Unity summarize what the Scriptures teach.
The Heidelberg Catechism (catechism means “to teach orally”) was written in a question-and-answer format in order to help explain biblical teaching to believers young and old. Elder Robert Mettler has provided a file that contains both the Heidelberg Catechism and explanations of each Lord’s Day by various RCUS pastors.
The Belgic Confession provides a more in-depth summary of many essential biblical truths. For centuries this confession has been held as one of the best symbolical (representative) statements of Reformed doctrine.
The Canons of Dort present a series of responses by the Reformed Church to specific theological questions that were submitted to them in the form of a complaint known historically as “The Remonstrance.” It addresses subjects such as the nature and extent of sin, election, atonement, grace, justification, sanctification, and perseverance. It provides both a positive declaration of Biblical truth on a given subject as well as a refutation of the errors that were found in the complaint.
