All Hungarian Reformed Churches recognize the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the Word of God and the ultimate rule of the Christian faith and practice. In its doctrinal interpretation, it is guided by the Second Helvetic Confession and the Heidelberg Catechism with the liberty of conscience inherent in the Gospel.

Both the Second Helvetic Confession and the Heidelberg Catechism are classic statements of evangelical faith written in the century of the Reformation. They have been the confessional books of the Hungarian Reformed Churches ever since. The spirit of these two classic confessional books shapes our preaching and teaching ministry, Christian education and confirmation instruction, church life and personal piety.
