Reformed
Fellowship wants to promote Reformed
Reformed
thinking, encourage churches and people to embrace Reformed
Reformed
thinking, and to promote evangelisation in the Reformed

tradition and to provide forum for dialogue.

It is similar in theology to the International Conference of Reformed Churches and more conservative than the World Communion of Reformed Churches .

There are a total of 72 denominational members of the Fellowship, and 183 organizational members, as of February 2, 2016.

The Fourth General Assembly of the World Reformed
Reformed
Fellowship was held in Sao Paulo, Brazil in March 2015. This General Assembly approved a new statement of faith which had been completed March 31, 2011. This statement includes twelve articles and was made to accomplish three purposes:

* To express accurately the contents of the other historic Reformed confessions which members are required to hold to at least one of. * To apply the Reformed
Reformed
faith to specific issues that the 21st-century church is facing. * To include the voices of Reformed
Reformed
Christians from around the world, since the other confessions were written primarily by Christians in Europe.
