Belgic Confession Display
In 2011 we celebrate the 450th anniversary of the Belgic Confession of Faith! Less familiar to most of us than the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Belgic Confession originated in the Reformed tradition of the Lowlands (now the Netherlands, Belgium, and northern France), and it is still one of the chief doctrinal standards for denominations of Dutch Reformed descent. The primary author of the Belgic Confession was Guido de Brès, a French-speaking minister who spent most of his adult life preaching and studying the rich Reformed faith while fleeing persecution. Visit a special Belgic Confession display at the Montgomery Library to learn more about the dramatic story of Guido de Brès and why he composed a new confession of faith.
