This application provides a searchable library of the most universally used Christian creeds and the principal theological standards of the Continental Reformed and English Presbyterian churches.
Included by default are the three ancient creeds (the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed); the 'Three Forms of Unity' (the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort); and the Westminster Standards (the Westminster Confession and the Shorter and Larger Catechisms.) Many additional documents may be downloaded from within the application.
Scripture references provided in the original document are hyperlinked and may be viewed within the app itself (KJV), or by linking to a user-specified native bible app or external web site. A full-text search capability (with editable search history) allows you to instantly find words, phrases and scripture references within a single document or across the entire library.
This application will help anyone better understand and appreciate the depth and richness of the Christian faith as it has been historically understood.

Fantastic resource, except for one thing.
I love this app, it’s awesome resources and I’d recommend it to anyone looking to get into their creeds and confessions, but there is one snag. They have the Philadelphia revision of the WCF listed as 1647 which is a bit confusing to me. Both the original WCF and the 1788 are heavily used today in Reformed churches, and it’d be nice to have both on hand in digital form, but the app only seems to have the revised version and listed as 1647 rather than 1788. That’s the only thing keeping me from 5 stars. Other than that I recommend this app to anyone.
A wonderful reference tool!
I am incredibly thankful for this app! I previously paid for a standalone app which provided only one Reformed confession of faith. However this app contains that confession and many other historic documents as well, all in a much nicer interface. It also allows Bible verses to be looked up in your choice of versions on the web, or in your favorite app. It's a great tool, and I'm grateful for the author's fine work!
The biggest areas that need to be fixed are to correct the year or the Westminster Confession needs to be the original as this app claims it to be and 2) the inability to pull up verses that look as if they have a hyperlink to them. If it pulled up the verse in a small box while staying on the screen or if the App would open safari or the Bible app and pull the verse which I was trying to look up this would be a five star instead of three.
