Confessionof Faith

Confession of Faith in a wide sense denotes a creed or other embodiment of the religious faith of a Church, but it is often used in the more modified sense of a declaration of belief set forth by one or other of the Reformed Churches or Communities. These confessions are numerous and varied. The most notable are that of Augsburg in 1530, which was the first attempt at unity and conformity of doctrine among Protestants, and that of Westminster in 1647, which embodied the principles that governed Presbyterian practices.
