The Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century was an effort to reform the theology, worship, and polity of the church according to scripture and the customs of the ancient church.
Calvin entitled his Genevan Psalter
La Forme des prières et chantz ecclésiastiques avec la manière d’administrer les sacremens … selon la coustume de l’église ancienne.
The Reformers deliberately developed their approach to worship by returning, first and foremost, to scripture but also to the fathers of the church, whom they regarded as fallible, though generally reliable, interpreters of scripture.
The aim of Ancient-Reformed Worship is to continue the work that the Reformers began in the sixteenth century by promoting the reformation of worship according to scripture and the customs of the ancient church.
