Main Article Content

Stafford Carson


This article begins by outlining some of the questions raised within the Church of Scotland in recent decades concerning the role and value of the Westminster Confession of Faith (WCF) as the church’s subordinate standard. In addressing these, the article asserts that the content and teaching of the WCF continue to be relevant for Reformed churches today. By examining the work that went into the drafting of the WCF, the article argues that the cohesive picture of Reformed orthodoxy and catholicity that the WCF presents has immense practical value for contemporary ministry and church renewal in a challenging cultural moment.
