The 39: An Exposition on the 39 Articles

The Thirty-Nine Articles contain the historic doctrine of the Church of England and godly Anglicans around the world. The Articles are also strongly reformed, and for centuries have encouraged Reformed Christians—Anglican or otherwise—to consider the riches of God's revelation and their implications for His Church. 

Join Rev. Henry Jansma as he revisits the 39 Articles, explaining their significance and applying them to our present day!
