Synod 2011 said the new hymnal being produced by Faith Alive, Lift Up Your Hearts, will not include the full text of the Reformed Confessions as originally planned.
Because of its smaller size, the hymnal will be easier to use and handle without including the confessions. Removing the confessions also increases the hymnal’s potential to be used by other denominations.
Synod noted the easy access to the confessions online and in other publications. They will also be printed in a separate volume that can be used in a classroom, church, or home.
