the means of grace the sacraments as a strengthening of his faith. If a young man or young woman becomes twenty-five or thirty years old, and has shown no desire to confess his or her faith, there is something radically wrong in their spiritual life. And also the consistory must determine whether the walk of the person is of a nature that he can partake of the sacraments without polluting them. But maybe it would be good to back up a little. He cannot at one time be partly a member of the body of Christ, and then at a later date, become a full member. He has the right to serve in office in the church; he has the right to exercise his privilege of voting for office-bearers and for voting for ministers of the Word; he has the right to exercise his privileges as a member of the body. Thus, all these things only emphasize the fact that confession of faith is a very important step in the life of the child of God, and should not be taken lightly. 3) Why must this confession take place in public? After the person has successfully passed his quiz, the name of the person is announced to the congregation to seek the approbation of the congregation. That, too, is important. Possibly the term full member is not a very good one to use, because it implies that we were part members, but now we become full members.
Then we see how much we need a Savior. 4) When must a person make confession of faith? We are told in passages from Scripture that the birth of Jesus Christ was the birth of our Savior. For after he has publicly testified of his faith, he may more fully enjoy fellowship with those in whose presence he dwells. When they have shown a basic knowledge of the faith of the church, and when they have expressed a firm faith in Christ manifested in a godly walk, there is no reason why they should be prevented from publicly confessing their faith. It is a step that must be approached with much thought and prayer and preparation; but it is also a step that can be a very spiritually enriching experience, and a very joyful occasion in the way that God has ordained for us in this. 1:21) cant bring us comfort and joy if we are not grieving, burdened and despairing because of our sins. This is a very serious sin.

It is only the one who is aware of his desperate need of salvation, his utter helplessness and his unworthiness before God who can rejoice in the birth of his Savior. But the quiz itself is very important. But there is yet one more question: Will you submit to church government, and in case you should become delinquent (which may God graciously forbid) to church discipline? Ophoff remarks in his notes on church polity, in connection with Article 71 of the Church Order, in answer to the question, What is the purpose of church discipline, The purpose of the church is the salvation of the spirit of the censured one. 2,.He hath been pleased in His infinite mercy to give His only begotten Son, for our surety.for us and in our stead.on our behalf. That is hardly the case. For by it the consistory determines if the young person is sufficiently informed of the doctrines of the church to answer the questions put to him in sincerity, and in the full consciousness of what he is doing. 5) Therefore, when a person confesses his or her faith, that oscar De La Renta allows that one to take a more active part in the fellowship of believers. How comforting and how personal this was. With some, that may be very early in life; with others, that may be later in life.
