- Association of Reformed Baptist Churches of America
The Association of Reformed Baptist Churches of America (ARBCA) is a denomination of
Protestantchurches that was founded March 11, 1997. The association's churches all ascribe to the " London Baptist Confession of Faith", which was originally adopted in 1689by the Particular Baptist Association of London. The ARBCA originally consisted of 24 member churches, and has grown to 44 member churches in 2003. Their home office is located in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
Though fairly recently founded as an organization, the ARBCA is part of the long history of English speaking Particular or Calvinistic Baptists which began in the sixteenth century. The association encourages education through the "Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies", which closely cooperates with the Westminster Theological Seminary in Escondido, California. Serving in the area of foreign missions is the "Reformed Baptist Missions Service". The RBMS is older than the association; it was established in
1984. ARBCA has two publishing arms, the "Calvary Press" and "Reformed Baptist Publications".
