Series: What It Means To Be Reformed Presbyterian
When Presbyterians were united in the middle of the 17th century in Scotland, England, and Ireland, they took a covenant to promote the Reformation in these three kingdoms. They swore to uphold uniformity of religion according to their place and station in life. A part of that covenanted uniformity was a commitment to a unified confession of faith. This faith they swore to unite in confessing was that system of doctrine which is contained in the Scriptures. In this installment of the series WIMTBRP, New Testament passages are examined to establish the proposition that Scripture contains a system of doctrine and that the church is obligated to unite covenantally in confessing it.
