"Reformed" in this category is understood in the narrower sense that it designates a denomination or family of churches which followed John Calvin's teachings in such areas as theology, liturgy and church government. The term "reformed" in this context came to be used of almost all Calvinist churches on the continent- "Eglise Reformed" in France, "Reformierte Kirche" in Germany and the German -speaking part of Switzerland (Often preceded by the word "Evangelische") "Hervormde" or "Gereformeerde Kerken" in the Netherlands. The creeds used in these Reformed churches are typically the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession and the Canons of Dort
