About the Collective
Who We Are
The Reformed Collective exists to glorify God, equip His Church, and foster confessional unity by providing distinct perspectives from a Reformed point of view.
Centered in God’s Sovereignty in electing a people to call His own, we believe in what many refer to as Calvinism. Accurately, though incompletely, described in the five points: Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and Perseverance of the Saints.
Having a Calvinistic soteriology is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Reformed theology. Rooted in the Reformed confessions half a millenium old and creeds from the early Church, the Reformed faith is a robust, historic one. Writers for the Collective adhere to the Westminster Standards, 1689 Baptist Confession, and/or the Three Forms of Unity.
In stark contrast to popular New Covenant and Dispensational frameworks for interpreting Scripture, the writers of TRC affirm a form of federalism or Covenant Theology as it is known by many. Whether 1689 or Presbyterian federalist, the Collective finds unity in the unification of the Scriptures through covenant.
