Definition

Reformed theology is the term used to refer to the belief system(s) of those Protestant churches which trace their origins to the work of Reformers such as Huldrych Zwingli and John Calvin.

Summary

Reformed theology, originating in the Swiss Reformation, developed in response both to late medieval Catholicism and Lutheranism, breaking with the latter on the issue of the nature of Christ’s presence in the Lord’s Supper.  Defined confessionally by the Three Forms of Unity and the Westminster Standards, it maintains the generic Protestant emphases on the sufficiency of scripture and on justification by grace through faith, being distinctive in its approach to Christology, sacraments, certain approaches to politic and culture, and worship.
