Confessions of Faith

Basis of Union Paragraph 10. REFORMATION WITNESSES


“The Uniting Church continues to learn of the teaching of the Holy Scriptures in the  obedience and freedom of faith, and in the power of the promised gift of the Holy Spirit, from the witness of the Reformers as expressed in various ways in the Scots Confession of Faith (1560), the Heidelberg Catechism (1563), the Westminster Confession of  Faith (1647), and the Savoy Declaration (1658). 

In like manner  the Uniting Church will listen to the preaching of John Wesley in his Forty-Four Sermons (1793).

It will commit its ministers and instructors to study these statements, so that the congregation of Christ’s people may again and again be reminded of 

*  the  grace which justifies them through faith, 
*  of the centrality of the person and work of Christ the justifier
*  and of the need for a constant appeal to Holy Scripture.
