Protestant Creeds, Confessions & Catechisms

protestant creeds confessions
Over the centuries since the start of the Christian New Testament church, Protestant creeds, confessions & catechisms were developed to attempt to combat heretical teachings. These documents have also served to systematically map out Bible doctrines for properly instructing individual believers and for specific denominations, with regards to where in scripture a particular doctrine can be found – i.e. what is the scriptural justification for such-and-such a Christian doctrine. It is this author’s belief that much of the current error and heresy in the modern Christian Church could be eliminated if those creeds were resurrected and seriously studied by church elders and young believers alike.

A Narrower Creed

The Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed which are subscribed to by many churches and denominations are so broad in scope that even apostate churches agree with those creeds.  Here is a creed that only the lover’s of God’s sovereignty can agree with:
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ fully and finally accomplished redemption for all of God’s elect when He died on the cross of Calvary. We believe that when He died as our Substitute under the wrath of God that He fully and finally satisfied Divine justice by paying the sin debt and thereby secured salvation for all for whom He died. We believe that Christ through the Holy Spirit will also succeed in effectually calling and bringing all that He died for with Him into everlasting Glory. We believe that any gospel that robs our Lord of this, HIS glory in the finished, successful, accomplished work of salvation, is another gospel…. which is no gospel at all. Now, there’s the real offense and power of the gospel. Do you believe that? – Greg Elmquist, Apopka, FL

Christ Died For The Ungodly

by Horatius Bonar

The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
