Westminister Shorter Catechism


July 2021 - Blessings of our Faith in Christ

Why do some respond to the Gospel while others don't? Why is God's grace irresistable? How has God revealed Himself to use through the Holy Spirit? What happens when a child dies in infancy? 

What will make me right with God? Why is it a privilege to be God's children? How does God make me aware that I am His child? What does it look like to be saved by God where I am now?

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.
