Creeds of the Church:

Historic Creeds
The Reformed Netherland Creed


For centuries Christians have used creeds—short statements of faith—to affirm together what they believe. Today’s church is blessed to have these words of saints who have gone before us. What a privilege and a blessing for us to speak the words of faith that they spoke, to gain a sense of connection with our brothers and sisters who are now with the Lord, and to stand and affirm our belief in God with the Church throughout the ages! How blessed we are to enjoy this foretaste of the communion we will experience with the Church universal as we worship together before the Lamb.
 

The beauty of The Reformed Netherland Creed will nourish your spirit and engage your heart, and E4’s original Historic Creeds will provide you with quick access to the most frequently used creeds of yesterday and today. The creeds contained in this collection present an important piece church history and provide a wonderful vehicle for personal devotions or public worship.
 

 

“This is a great set! Anyone who is interested in church history or liturgy should get this!

Confessions of the Church:

A Puritan Confession
The Augsburg Confession
The Apology of the Augsburg Confession
The Baptist Confession
The Belgic Confession
The Confession of St. Patrick
The Canons of Dordt
The Geneva Confession
The London Baptist Confession of Faith
The Second Helvetic Confession
The Smalcald Articles
The 39 Articles
The Westminster Confession of Faith
The 95 Theses


Many modern Christians, if they give them any thought, view confessions of faith as antiquated and irrelevant to today’s society. They could not be more mistaken! Teaching on the Baptist Confession, Spurgeon explains: “Here the youngest members of our church will have a body of Truth in small compass, and by means of the scriptural proofs, will be able to give a reason for the hope that is in them.” Both young and old, seasoned and fledgling, will gain insight and strength through studying Confessions of the Church.
 

The confessions of faith found in this collection have benefitted the Church worldwide for centuries, enlightening believers in every circumstance, helping them better understand their God and defend their faith. How desperately Christians need this today! Confessions are exceptional teaching aids for pastors, parents, and lay-teachers. They are a treasure trove for anyone who wants to discover more of the truths of Scripture. Each work has something unique to offer, and all will edify and enlighten. The Confession of St. Patrick will leave you in awe of God’s work in and through this godly man. The primary confession of faith for the Lutheran church, the Augsburg Confession contains truths for every believer.
 

One of the oldest and most important doctrinal statements of the Reformed churches, the Belgic Confession was upheld in the face of fierce persecution that resulted in the death of thousands, including the confession’s author Guido de Bras. Its words of inspiring truth will ground and strengthen believers today. The fiery words and energetic tone of Martin Luther will engage you in the Smalcald Articles, and the comprehensive precision of the Westminster Confession of Faith will impart profound wisdom and knowledge to its readers.

These confessions can be used in small groups, Sunday school classes, as a sermon series, in one-on-one discipleship, or in personal study. Their versatility and spiritual depth will make this one of the most-used collections in your library.
 

“The Smalcald Articles are a lively presentation of the basics of Lutheranism. They are a whirlwind, alternately attacking and defending, using elaborate arguments that show little mercy to any that would interfere with the work of God amongst his people.”
-Amazon reviewer
 
Catechisms of the Church

The Baltimore Catechism
The Baptist Catechism
The Heidelberg Catechism
Luther’s Large Catechism
Luther’s Small Catechism
Two Short Catechisms
The Westminster Larger Catechism
The Westminster Shorter Catechism


“The Catechism is not a mere human composition, not ‘a cunningly-devised fable,’ but…it derives its being, its vitality, its beauty, its grandeur, its high authority, from the very words of Divine inspiration,” writes James Robert Boyd in his analysis of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. John Owen says Christians can learn more “…by one hour’s catechetical exercise, than by many hours’ continual discourse.” Many catechisms, including the Baltimore Catechism and Luther’s Small Catechism, were originally written for children, but Christians of all ages find them enriching and enlightening.
 

Luther’s Large Catechism included in this collection is designed specifically to help clergymen more effectively teach their congregations. Likewise, The Heidelberg Catechism offers fifty-two sections to be preached weekly throughout the year, but its beautiful, devotional language makes it ideal for personal study and meditation as well. In both the shorter and larger Westminster Catechisms you will discover the theological depth that makes them the main catechisms used in Reformed churches throughout the world. All of the catechisms in this unique collection provide an easy format for Christians both young and old to learn complex doctrinal truths.
 

“This is the most beautiful confession of the Christian faith I have ever read. The words of this confession pierce my soul and put me in awe of God. I wish every Christian and every unbeliever could hear the words of this work.”
-William Wolfe
