An Ageless Summary of an Everlasting Comfort

Klooster resources

Welcome to our website!  Here you will find a growing, online collection of resources, all revolving around the Heidelberg Catechism.  We've organized teaching outlines, sermons, articles, different translations, photos, videos, audio recordings and much more in a way that hopefully makes it easy for you to find what you're looking for.

First published in 1563, the Heidelberg Catechism has been used by Christians around the world ever since.  The Catechism summarizes the major teachings of Holy Scripture in one hundred and twenty-nine memorable questions and answers.  Simple yet profound, as well as concise yet sufficient, the Catechism has been appreciated by young and old alike as one of the most clear, helpful and comforting guides into all the spiritual treasures of the holy gospel. The gospel is "the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes" (Rom 1:16).  The Heidelberg Catechism helps you discover just how powerful the gospel really is, and "how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ" (Eph 3:18).

If you're already familiar with the Catechism we encourage to start exploring our website and using the resources we've collected.  There's an introductory video, or read about the main features of the website in our "Using this website" guide.
