The Confession of Belhar, Participant's Book
BeingReformedPBBelhar230.jpg






Written by Cynthia Holder Rich
The Belhar Confession emerged from South Africa as a witness of Christian faith against the sins of racism and focuses on major themes of unity, reconciliation, and justice in the context of the church’s Trinitarian belief. Explore what it means to be a confessional Church and to meet and confess our faith in the face of racism in its various forms.

Session 1. Belhar History and Being a Confessional Church; Session 2. Article 1: A Trinitarian and Ecclesiological Confession; Session 3. Article 2: Unity; Session 4. Article 3: Reconciliation; Session 5. Article 4: Justice; Session 6. Article 5: Benediction and the Role of Confessions

Being Reformed: Faith Seeking Understanding is a series of biblically based mini-courses that provides adults with a foundational understanding of the Reformed faith. Each six-session study—written by well-known and respected scholars—features Scripture, prayer, in-depth commentary, and questions for reflection. Each study addresses its subject from a Reformed theological perspective.


Lessons are enhanced through the Leader’s Guide, which offers helpful suggestions and direction for group study. The main structure for these guides is the rubric Head, Heart, and Hands.

Cynthia Holder Rich is an ordained minister of the Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and a theologian, researcher, and writer. She has served as a parish pastor, mission co-worker, and seminary professor and administrator, and currently serves in interim ministry. She directs ecclesio.com, a Web site where scholars, pastors, and laypeople take part in conversations about issues facing the church. Holder Rich publishes frequently in denominational and peer-reviewed journals and in books.
