Question 24: Short Catechism for Young Churchmen



Q. (24) What authority hath the Church?

A. "The Church hath power to decree rites and ceremonies, and authority in controversies of faith; and yet it is not lawful for the Church to ordain anything contrary to God's Word written, neither may it so expound one place of Scripture, that it be repugnant to another."-(Art. XX; Acts 15:2, 23; 16:4; 1 Cor. 14:26, 40; Gal. 1:8.)
