The Westminster Confession of Faith



The last great statement of the post-reformation period was the Westminster Confession of Faith (WCF). It is used as the subordinate standard of all Presbyterian Churches, and most reformed churches today. It is also the statement of faith of Grace Theological College. All faculty and board members are required to subscribe to the WCF or the Baptist adaptation, the 1689 London Confession (also known as the Philadelphia Confession).

Presented in four modules, these classes on the WCF are suitable for individual study or for church leadership training.

Why not begin, however, with three introductory lectures on this monumental work. First there is an encouragement to study the WCF from the 90’s by pastor emeritus, Arthur W. Palmer (B.A., B.D., Th.G.) followed by two lectures on the background of the Confession by Dr. Andrew W. Young (Ph.D) from the late 90’s.
