Belhar Confession: Study Center

The Belhar Confession is the newest standard of unity of the Reformed Church in America. It was adopted by General Synod in 2009 and ratified by the RCA's classes, or regional governance bodies, in 2010.

The resources on these pages can provide the church the opportunity to study and use the Belhar in a variety of congregational settings, including worship; to dig more deeply into its content and meaning; and to ask how the RCA might respond to the call of the Belhar to unity, to reconciliation, and to justice, especially in its focus on racism.
