SAH-DS515 – Confessing the Faith: Worship, Creeds and Subordinate Standards (PCC)

View outline (PDF)   Instructor(s): Rev. Dr. Ross Lockhart

This courses will examine the three subordinate standards of The Presbyterian Church in Canada: “The Westminster Confession of Faith” (1645, adopted in 1875 and 1889), “The Declaration of Faith Concerning Church and Nation” (1954), and “Living Faith” (19884, adopted in 1998) to discover the development of a Reformed theology which is responsive to changing times and contexts. Connections and disconnections will be observed with present statements of faith and confession, as well as the current practice of Presbyterian worship, care and justice in a very different, more socially aware, inter-religious world.

Course available via Zoom for off-site students
