Main Article Content

Paul T. Nimmo


This article poses the questions of whether a specific confession of faith is necessary in the church, and, if it is, how a church might discern when a new act of confession may be required. It approaches these issues by reflecting on the act of confessing and on the work of confession. It argues that it is the movement from confessing to confession that enables the church to discern when a situation has been reached when a new confession is required.
