Larger and Shorter Catechism

The Larger Catechism, along with the Shorter Catechism, is a summary or exposition of Reformed doctrine as contained in the Westminster Confession of Faith, and are part of the Constitution and confessional standard of the EPC. Two versions of both are available for use in the EPC.



The traditional-language version includes those portions amended by action of the General Assembly of the EPC. Click here to download in pdf format.

A modern English version of the Larger Catechism (including Scripture references in the text) is published by the EPC and may be downloaded by clicking here. It is also published in print as part of The Westminster Confession and Catechisms, which may be ordered as an 8 1/2 x 11 spiral bound book from the Resources page.
