The Presbyterian Church of East Africa adopts the Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger and Shorter Catechisms (1647), as its secondary standards (the Bible itself being the only infallible rule of faith and practice).
Officers in the Church take a vow to “sincerely receive and adopt” these confessional documents “as containing the system of doctrine taught in the Holy Scriptures.”
The following links will carry you to OPC website. We commend them as helpful reources for biblical research.
