The independent churches coalesced into four denominations or federations reduced to three in The largest is the United Reformed Churches in North America URCNAformed in with 36 churches and 7, members, and reporting 73 congregations and 17, members at the end of Because most of these congregations since have affiliated with the United Reformed Churches, the Alliances disbanded inand its constituent body, the Lake Michigan Regional Fellowship LMRFhas become an shadow of its former self.
LMRF congregations maintain a formal tie with the URCNA, known as "ecclesiastical fellowship," which allows pulpit exchanges, mutual sharing in the Lord's Supper, and joint youth programs. The last holdout is the oldest body, the Orthodox Reformed federation, which the United Reformed has "urged to merge" since Doctrinally and liturgically there is little difference Evan testimony paper them, but the Orthodox Reformed, like the LMRF, fears an ecclesiastical superstructure that may again "lord it Evan testimony paper them.
The United Reformed and Canadian Reformed federations have also entered into merger talks, with a suggested date for "full union" in Schilder raised doctrinal concerns but his broader purpose was to warn the GKN against modernist theology.
The Canadian Reformed federation is today a 15,member denomination totaling 48 churches. These merger discussions resemble a courtship dance that will likely result in a union of all the seceded churches with Dutch roots, resulting in one growing denomination of congregations and 50, members.

For these progressives, a relational Christianity is more important than doctrinal principles. In any case, the slippage has been far greater on the "right" than on the "left," if one can so label the opposing "minds.
Their Dutch Reformed roots seemingly had little meaning. The stated aim of the United and Orthodox Reformed churches is to stand confessionally in the biblical and Dutch Calvinist heritage. They cling to the truth handed down and revere the Three Forms of Unity Heidelberg Catechism, Canons of Dort, and Belgic Confession and the Form of Subscription for office-bearers; they value Dutch Reformed liturgy, hymnody, and psalmody; insist on catechetical training; and they strictly interpret their Dortian-based Church Order to ensure that the authority of the local church is not eroded by a denominational hierarchy.
An unstated goal of many is to preserve churches that resemble the ethnically homogeneous CRCNA of the s, when the motto, "In isolation is our strength," yet ruled the day.
