Dutch settlers in New Amsterdam, later New York, created the Reformed Church in America in 1628. One of the oldest churches in the United States, it was known as the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church until 1867. The church remained under the authority of the Amsterdam church until 1776. It was an East Coast church, concentrated in New York and New Jersey, until immigration and migration in the 19th century spread the church across the country. It also has a small group of churches in Canada. Even today, the RCA reflects that history. The East Coast churches tend to have a more liberal ethos, while the Midwest leans toward the conservative side. The church has two seminaries, in New Jersey and Michigan. While its main offices are in New York, there are also regional offices in the Midwest. It is affiliated with three liberal arts colleges, Hope College in Michigan and Central and Northwestern Colleges in Iowa. The RCA has never been in a merger, but it is involved in major discussions with other mainline Prot in the United States. It has been active ecumenically, and manages a substantial mission organization.
