Creeds and Confessions

From the Apostle Paul's 'trustworthy sayings' to the Westminster Confession of Faith, the church has consistently sought to formulate a concise statement of what is to be believed by its adherents. These documents - short or long - are called creeds or confessions, and they have both united and divided believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. This study seeks to understand the benefits of credal formulas, analyze some of the leading Protestant creeds and confessions, and investigate the merit (or demerit) of the current phenomenon of 'confessionalism' within many Reformed denominations.
