 The Reformed Ecumenical Council: Focus 3.2.8   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Reformed Christians join with Christians in all times and places in affirming the saving purpose of God to unite all things in Jesus Christ, the mission of the church to proclaim this good news, and the hope of Christ’s return in glory to usher in the new heaven and the new earth.
Reformed Christians are “confessing Protestants” whose posture is not first of all defined polemically (against liberals or against fundamentalists) but is defined historically by a theological tradition that goes back to John Calvin and the Reformers and to St. Augustine.
A key Reformed principle is that “a Reformed church is always to be reforming.” The Reformation itself was a radical reforming and renewing of the church, and thus, the church is always reforming and renewing, dying and rising again.

 True Brothers: The Netherlandic Origins of the Christian Reformed Church in North America, 1857-1880
Having become a friend of the Associate Reformed Church pastor in Gun Plains, Michigan, which was a conservative, psalm-singing, Scottish Calvinist body, Schepers in 1852 obtained ordination as an evangelist in that Presbytery, and the South Holland church effectively seceded from the RCA.
This church had a history of factiousness and strife, which was caused by a spirit of clannishness already rife in the old country that pitted people from the western Staphorst region against those from the eastern area of Emmen and Sleen.
The declaration of secession by the consistory of this church simply stated that "we have betaken ourselves to the standpoint we had when we left the Netherlands, in order thus again to be in connection with the church of the Netherlands." Polkton clearly considered their action a return to the 1834 church.

The monies were given in trust to the local congregations of the Christian Reformed Church in North America, and it's not to be taken over to be used for the property of some other denomination." According to Engelhard, the classical review of local church splits and withdrawals is essential.
