What is the Reformed Tradition?
The Protestant Reformation is one of the most important developments that has taken place in the entire history of the Christian church. It began early in the 16th century with a series of actions taken by a German monk (and Biblical scholar) named Martin Luther who loved the Bible and came to believe that the church of his day was not faithful to the teaching of Scripture.
The Reformed Institute hosts regular events and courses, including our annual Convocation, confirmation class and more. Learn about our upcoming events — and access recordings and other materials for previous events — on our Programs page.
Company of Teachers
We have established the Company of Teachers to provide churches with a coveted resource - people who are qualified to teach on aspects of the Reformed tradition that are relevant to the concerns of Christians today (everything from church doctrine to politics and economics).
The Reformed Institute is pleased to offer an array of resources, including suggested readings from annual Convocations, Reformation Sunday and other sources, book reviews, the essay series "Whither the PC(USA)?", and our "Not Quite Beach Reading" list.
In this program held September 24, 2022, Dr. Ellen Clark Clémot talks about her book, “Discerning Welcome – a Reformed Faith Approach to Refugees.”Read More
