London Baptist Confession of Faith

of 1689

General Information

Editor's Note: This Confession is generally based on the earlier Westminster (London) Confession of 1644. This later London Confession of Faith eliminated several chapters near the end of that earlier Confession that tended to mix Church and state. Our presentation of the Westminster Confession includes those chapters.
