Dr. Sam Logan, associate international director of World Reformed Fellowship, brought greetings to Synod 2016. The organization is a group of evangelical and Reformed Christian congregations, individuals, and organizations from 79 countries. The Christian Reformed Church joined the fellowship in 2015.
Logan said the Fellowship seeks inclusivity while maintaining that the Bible is accurate in all that it teaches as part of their statement of faith. The Fellowship also works on behalf of believers who are falsely imprisoned or enduring persecution.
He said their work includes bringing people together to assist refugees as well as bringing a Reformed perspective in discussions regarding Islam. He closed by requesting prayer for Reformed World Fellowship as it gives visible expression to the conviction that “service to one becomes service to all.”
