People often ask, "What is a Reformed church?" or "What do you mean by Reformed?" Smallman's booklet will help pastors and churches answer these questions clearly.
While teaching new member classes, Smallman writes, "I got a sense of the kind of issues that are in peoples' minds as they struggle to understand and appreciate the core doctrines and traditions of the church." Here he discusses the Reformed view of Scripture, divine sovereignty, the covenant, the law, the church, and the kingdom.
Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.
