Messages from the Worldwide Reformed Family2017. április 12., szerda
During the RCH’s Reformation Jubilee, members of the worldwide reformed church family recorded encouraging messages for the Hungarian church. To strengthen the global network of reformed churches, leaders from denominations in Asia and the Americas gathered to share inspirational words of wisdom with the RCH.
The worldwide community of reformed churches has a close-knit bond – distance is not a barrier for relationships this strong. This was shown at the RCH’s Reformation Jubilee where approximately forty Reformed sisters and brothers from around the world gathered in Debrecen to join in the celebrations. During their time in Hungary, members of reformed churches around the world recorded video messages on themes of Reformation, common bonds in Christ, and the importance of young people in the church to share with the Reformed Church in Hungary.

“The Reformation means something very different in the USA, so it’s quite striking to be here and share with this event in Europe, where the meaning goes much deeper because it’s so much tied up with European history.”
Lee Jae Cheon
Presbyterian Church in the Republic of Korea (PROK)
“Knowing past is the best way for the future.”
