General Assembly reports are thoughtful and weighty treatises on important matters but they are not constitutional documents. Only the Confession of Faith and Catechisms, the Form of Government, the Book of Discipline, and the Directory for the Public Worship of God of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church express the church's official understanding of what the Word of God teaches.
The Standing Rules and Instruments provide the procedural framework for meetings of the General Assembly (PDF).
