This is our first Friday of the month look at one of the booklets that are provided by The Committee on Christian Education of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.  
Today’s booklet is titled Why Christians Need Confessions.                  
 
There are copies of this booklet in the Church foyer bookcase if you would like one. This title is not available to read online.
