Westminster Confession of Faith

The Westminster Confession of Faith is a document written in the 1640ís by scholars and clergy in England at a time when the church was struggling with what it really believed about major teachings of the Bible. What emerged was an organized statement of their beliefs known as the Westminster Confession of Faith because it was written at Westminster Abbey, London, England.  Secondary to the Bible, this document has stood the test of time over the last several centuries and is widely regarded as the best statement of "Reformed" (or biblical) theology.

The Evangelical Presbyterian Church has adopted a modern version of this historical document as one component of its constitution. The modern version, called The Westminster Confession of Faith: An Authentic Modern Version was published by The Summertown Company, Inc. This version is not available on line at this time, but you can read the original version by clicking here.
