How do you teach the faith to children?  Memorising Scripture is vital, but a catechism helps a child to see how the verses they learn fit together. They then have the message of the Bible in their minds and not just the words. They also see how truths relate to each other and depend on other teachings.

WHAT IS A CATECHISM?

A catechism summarises the Bible’s teachings through questions and answers. The question and answer format allows the truths to be presented in an organised way and makes the truths easier to learn and remember.

WHY LEARN THE SHORTER CATECHISM?

It helps us summarise Bible truth.

The Shorter Catechism is very short. It only includes the most essential doctrines. It covers the key truths about God, creation and providence, how we fell into sin, and God’s way of saving sinners. It also unpacks God’s requirements for how we should live our lives, and explains what we must do to be saved. It also opens up what we must do to be saved and explains God’s requirements for how we should live our lives. Much (but not all) of the teaching in the Westminster Confession is condensed into the Shorter Catechism. It gives us what we need to grasp first of all.

It helps us remember Bible truth.

Generations of believers, with their children, have not only read the Shorter Catechism but memorised it. By learning it off by heart, we fix its important truths in our mind so that we can use it again and again and so that it shapes our thinking and our behaviour.

It helps us defend Bible truth.

By its brief and precise wording, the Shorter Catechism gives us a ready-made articulation of what the Bible teaches. We don’t have to start from scratch or use our own words every time we want to explain some part of Christian doctrine. Instead we can use the descriptions and definitions which are carefully crafted, ready and waiting in the Catechism.

It helps us learn Bible truth.

In the Catechism we learn about the most important subjects, such as who God is, what He has done to save us from our sin and how we should obey God through keeping His commandments. It teaches us about this life, and life after death. It also helps us understand about the Trinity and the ways God communicates His grace. We can learn the Catechism ourselves by reading and answering the questions.
