REFORMATION WITNESSES

Paragraph 10 Basis of Union
 

10. REFORMATION WITNESSES

The Uniting Church continues to learn of the teaching of the Holy Scriptures in the obedience and freedom of faith, and in the power of the promised gift of the Holy Spirit, from the witness of the Reformers as expressed in various ways in the Scots Confession of Faith (1560), the Heidelberg Catechism (1563), the Westminster Confession of Faith (1647), and the Savoy Declaration (1658). In like manner the Uniting Church will listen to the preaching of John Wesley in his Forty-Four Sermons (1793). It will commit its ministers and instructors to study these statements, so that the congregation of Christ’ people may again and again be reminded of the grace which justifies them through faith, of the centrality of the person and work of Christ the justifier, and of the need for a constant appeal to Holy Scripture.

September 2007

Rev Rod James

 

Throughout the nearly 4000 years since Abraham, God’s people have been prone to veering away from the will, the word and the way of God. This veering away is called ‘apostasy’. Whenever apostasy has occurred God has raised up confessors who have boldly and bravely confessed the will, word and way of the Lord. In each case God’s people have, in retrospect repented of that apostasy and affirmed the confession of the confessors.

REFORMATION WITNESSES

IN THE BASIS OF UNION

 


The Uniting Church continues to learn

of the teaching of the Holy Scriptures

in the obedience and freedom of faith,

and in the POWER

              of the promised gift

                                    of the Holy Spirit,

from the witness of the Reformers

as expressed in various ways

The Heidelberg Catechism (1563),

and the Savoy Declaration (1658).

In like manner

      the Uniting Church will listen

 

            to the preaching of John Wesley

 

                        in his Forty-Four Sermons (1793).

It will commit

         its ministers and instructors

                                to study these statements,

So that the congregation of Christ’s people

 

may again and again

 

be reminded

of the grace

 

which justifies them through faith,

Of the centrality

                             

of the person and work

 

                                 

I

                          Of Christ the Justifier

And of the need

         for a constant appeal

                      to Holy Scripture.
