Presbiterianos Reformados (Spanish translations of Reformed and Covenanter works)
"?Aqu? se encuentra el ?nico lugar en la red d?nde se ofrece los Est?ndares originales de Westminster en completo y sin alguna enmienda!
"Las metas de este sitio son tres.
"Primero, para proclamar el evangelio a todo el mundo, para que el mundo sepa que solamente hay salvaci?n en Cristo y no en otro u otra cosa. El ser humano es corrupto y peca constantemente, el ?nico que puede librarnos de tal corrupci?n que trae la condenaci?n eterna es Jesucristo el Hijo de Dios, nuestro Rey y Se?or. ?Entre los cuales tambi?n todos nosotros vivimos en otro tiempo en los deseos de nuestra carne, haciendo la voluntad de la carne y de los pensamientos, y ?ramos por naturaleza hijos de ira, lo mismo que los dem?s?aun estando nosotros muertos en pecados, nos dio vida juntamente con Cristo?Porque por gracia sois salvos por medio de la fe; y esto no de vosotros, pues es don de Dios; no por obras, para que nadie se glor?e?. Efesios 2:3, 5, 8-9.
"Segundo, para establecer y edificar el pueblo y la Iglesia de Cristo, de lengua espa?ola, en la fe verdadera encontrada en la doctrina calvinista, la expresi?n doctrinal del protestantismo m?s pura y fiel a la Palabra de Dios. Tambi?n para buscar la unidad que existe en el amor establecido en la Verdad de la Palabra de Dios con nuestros hermanos en Cristo. No simplemente en amor, pero tambi?n en la Verdad. Unidos en una sola doctrina (como Dios ha mandado), en una sola forma de adoraci?n hacia Dios (como Dios ha mandado), en una sola forma de gobierno-eclesi?stica (como Dios ha mandado) y en una sola forma de disciplina (como Dios ha mandado). ?No traspases los linderos antiguos que pusieron tus padres?. Proverbios 22:28. ?As? dijo Jehov?: Paraos en los caminos, y mirad, y preguntad por las sendas antiguas, cu?l sea el buen camino, y andad por ?l, y hallar?is descanso para vuestra alma?. Jerem?as 6:16
"Tercero, para llamar a nuestros hermanos protestantes, especialmente los que son presbiterianos y reformados, que regresen a la fe verdadera del protestantismo y que dejen por un lado las doctrinas que han adoptado de la Iglesia de Roma. Muchos protestantes han olvidado la doctrina que Dios dio a su Iglesia por medio de Su ministros que levant? en los siglos 16 y 17, tal como Juan Calvino, Juan Knox y los te?logos/ministros de la Asamblea de Westminster (del siglo 17) y la Iglesia de Escocia. La mayor?a de presbiterianos y calvinistas de hoy dicen que siguen la doctrina de Calvino, de Knox y de los ministros de la Asamblea de Westminster cuando la realidad es diferente, esto se debe a la ignorancia de los escritos de estos ministros y por la corrupci?n doctrinal que ha entrado a la Iglesia de Cristo en varios niveles. ?Pero en aquello a que hemos llegado, sigamos una misma regla, sintamos una misma cosa. Hermanos, sed imitadores de m?, y mirad a los que as? se conducen seg?n el ejemplo que ten?is en nosotros?. Filipenses 3:16-17 ??Andar?n dos juntos, si no estuvieren de acuerdo??. Am?s 3:3
"Nuestra oraci?n es que su visita sea de mucho ?nimo y edificaci?n. Le invitamos a escribirnos para cualquier pregunta o comentario. Al navegar en nuestro sitio, encontrar? sermones de pastores presbiterianos pactantes que hallar? de mucha inspiraci?n. O tal vez nuestro patrimonio doctrinal b?blico le sea de gran inter?s. Si desea m?s informaci?n de nuestra iglesia y doctrina b?blica, comun?quese con nosotros y le responderemos con mucho gusto."

Reformed Missions in Latin America
"Our goals for 2003 included the printing of two important books translated into Spanish - JOHN CALVIN: HIS ROOTS AND FRUITS, by C. Gregg Singer. This book shows Calvin's continuity with the early Church Fathers in theology, and reviews the Reformer's contributions in the area of economics, politics, education and family. An important resource for our churches!"

Index Translationum
"The Index Translationum is a list of books translated in the world, i.e. an international bibliography of translations [it does not appear to be exhaustive and we are unable to find most Christian Classics and Reformed titles -- sk]. The Index Translationum was created in 1932. It celebrates this year its 75th anniversary.
"The database contains cumulative bibliographical information on books translated and published in about one hundred of the UNESCO Member States since 1979 . . . in all disciplines: literature, social and human sciences, natural and exact sciences, art, history, and so forth. It is planned to update the work every four months. . . .
"By publishing this list, to serve as a reference work, UNESCO provides the general public with an irreplaceable tool for making bibliographical inventories of translations on a worldwide scale. . . .
"The online edition of the Index Translationum contains some 1,600,000 references (from 1979 to now) on all subjects.
