John Calvin – True Presbyterian

When Calvin was twenty-six, he wrote an address to the Roman Catholic Sovereign. Francis King of France – pleading for tolerance toward French Protestants.   Together with that address, Calvin included a statement of Presbyterian Doctrine for the king’s perusal.   That statement, subsequently expanded into Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion, is the systematic handbook of Biblical Doctrine which has been used by all true Presbyterians throughout the World – for ever since.

We ourselves are persuaded as to the essential Scripturalness and efficiency of the Calvinistic and Presbyterian system of Biblical Doctrine and Church Government.   We propose to deal with it in this booklet.
