The RLI promotes worship which is biblical, God-Centered, historically informed, and which strives for serious and vigorous participation from the people of God. We believe that the pattern of covenant renewal displays the biblical actions of worship.
The Reformed Liturgical Institute aims to –
· Strengthen local churches and help churchmen to mature in their understanding of Reformed liturgical principles.
· Make Reformed liturgical resources available through a web-site.
· Encourage the use of the Christian Year or church calendar as an aspect of the dominion of Christ over time.
· Promote and host conferences related to worship.
– Raise aesthetic standards of worship, especially in music.
The Institute aims to make a wide array of information available to pastors and students of liturgy. It does not intend to stamp an official imprimatur on these materials.
