Sermon series: the Belgic Confession
The first of the doctrinal standards of the Reformed Churches is the Confession of Faith. It is usually called the Belgic Confession because it originated in the southern Netherlands, now known as Belgium. Its chief author was Guido de Brès, a preacher of the Reformed Churches of the Netherlands, who died a martyr to the faith in the year 1567. During the 16th century the churches in this country were exposed to the most terrible persecution by the Roman Catholic government.
