Westminster Confession, week 24

Chapter 15: Of Repentance unto Life

4: As there is no sin so small, but it deserves damnation;[298] so there is no sin so great, that it can bring damnation upon those who truly repent.[299]

5: Man ought not to content themselves with a general repentance, but it is every man’s duty to endeavour to repent of his particular sins, particularly.[300]

6: As every man is bound to make private confession of his sins to God, praying for the pardon thereof;[301] upon which, and the forsaking of them, he shall find mercy;[302] so, he that scandalizes his brother, or the Church of Christ, ought to be willing, by a private or public confession, and sorrow for his sin, to declare his repentance to those that are offended,[303] who are thereupon to be reconciled to him, and in love to receive him.[304]
