Essentials of the Christian Faith

Designed to provide an understanding of the Scriptures with help from the confessions of the Reformed family of churches and to aid the student in preparation for public profession of faith. This is not a replacement for the Westminster confession of faith, the Westminster larger catechism, the Westminster shorter catechism, the Heidelberg catechism, the Belgic confession of faith, or of the Canons of Dort.

The purpose is two-fold:

• To show how the Reformed confessions understand Christ and His work from the Scriptures

• To instill in the student a love for Reformed doctrine and practice.
