This article refers to the Westminster Confession of Faith as it relates to Nationstates. For more general information, please see the Wikipedia article on the subject.

The Westminster Confession of Faith is a Reformed doctrinal statement in the Calvinist tradition. It is adhered to strictly by Greater Prussian Protestants and serves as either a doctrinal standard or a subordinate doctrinal standard in many Reformed and Presbyterian Churches worldwide. It is, of course, always considered subordinate to Scripture. Versions of the Confession have even been adopted by some Congregationalists and Baptists, although these versions feature significant changes.
