The Church: Reformed & Always Reforming October 27-29, 2010


Wel c om e to He idel be rg! In a time where everything seems to be about personal taste and preference, we are called to confess our faith clearly and without compromise. This annual conference seeks to foster the robust faith of the Reformed confessions. A faith for which Christians have been persecuted. A faith for which Christians have died. It is our hope that the Reformed faith would once again become the confession of many Christians and of many churches, here in Germany, in Europe and throughout the world. We cordially invite all Christians who treasure the heritage of the Reformation and the faith it bequeathed us to come and participate in this international conference. The Heidelberg Conference on Reformed Theology seeks to bring together Reformed believers from Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and elsewhere.
