Internet Study Resources

As with all study material, one needs to use discernment as to whether resources are Biblically sound. Important things to consider are, who manages the resources, and their theological commitment.  Ideally, they need to be committed to either the Three Forms of Unity and/or the Westminster Standards. 

The following shortenings are used: BC (Belgic Confession), C of D (Cannons of Dort), HC (Heildelberg Catechism), and WC (Westminster Confession).
