Basic doctrine - the Westminster Confession of Faith

The Westminster Confession is a creed. It is a wonderful summary of reformed theology in the Reformation tradition.  It declares what the Bible teaches, in 33 distinct areas. And it invites the personal response of individual Christians and churches.
 
It is truthful and clear. It delights in our God, His redemption plan, and the Bible. It provides help in understanding key Bible words and ideas. And it deals unashamedly with difficult doctrines as well as those that are obvious.
 
It is not perfect (only God’s Word, the Bible, is without error). But it has been accepted widely by Reformed and evangelical churches around the world ever since its authors penned it, in 1646 at the request of the English parliament.
 
Sometimes its language feels old-fashioned. But it doesn’t hurt to be reminded that Christianity was not invented last Tuesday. Evangelical Christians will benefit if we study it carefully and respond appropriately.

Here you'll find a series of talks on basic Christian doctrine, using the Confession as its starting point. You can also find a full text of the WCF below.
