Westminister Shorter Catechism


October & November 2020 - Salvation (Question 20-31)

What has the Lord Jesus Christ done to save me? Who is this person who can offer salvation? How can I share in the redemptive work accomplished by him? This section of the WSC series - on God's covenant of Grace & Christ the Mediator - will deal with these issues

What is the Shorter Catechism?

The Westminster Shorter Catechism (or simply the Shorter Catechism) was completed in 1647 as part of the Westminster Standard. It is a succinct summary or exposition of Christian faith & doctrine, and has been a guide & teaching tool for the passing on of Presbyterian beliefs. The Shorter Catechism is composed of 107 Q&A's. Questions include - What is the chief end of man? What is God? How did Christ, being the Son of God, become man? What benefits do believers receive from Christ at death? 

Participants will gain an understanding of the essential Reformed perspective of God based on Scriptural texts.
