Westminster Confession

Westminster Confession. A credal statement of Calvinistic Christianity, drawn up for Presbyterian Churches, 1643–6. In the end its compromise was overtaken by events, with the restoration of Charles II in 1660, and the reestablishment of the Anglican Church. But it remained a credal foundation for the Presbyterian Church in Scotland.
