The Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America is a relatively conservative American Reformed Denomination, that came into existence in the late 1600s. Reformed Presbyterians have also been referred to historically as Covenanters because of their identification with public covenanting in Scotland, beginning in the 16th century and accordingly supports the principles of the Solemn League and Covenant. The Church holds to the Westminster Standards, although, as it has grown more liberal in recent years, it has become more tolerant to non-Calvinist doctrines. It also allows female deacons.
