Heidelminicast: Belgic Confession Art. 21—The Reformed Churches Confess That Christ Is Our ONLY Satisfaction

The Belgic Confession was written by a Reformed pastor, Guy de Bres (1522–1567), who adopted the Reformed faith as a young man and studied with several Reformed luminaries, including John Calvin, before serving as a pastor, church planter, and chaplain in France and the French-speaking Lowlands. He was martyred for the gospel in 1567 but the confession he drafted in 1561 was adopted by the Reformed churches in 1567 and most significantly at the Great Synod of Dort (1618–19). It is one of the three forms of unity (including the Heidelberg Catechism and the Canons of Dort). It is a warm, pastoral, and even powerful confession of God’s Word written by a faithful pastor and pilgrim even as Romanist troops sought to arrest him and silence the gospel in the Netherlands.
