ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 63

Question 63

What are the special privileges of the visible church?

The visible church hath the privilege of being under God’ s special care and government; (Isa. 4:5–6, 1 Tim. 4:10) of being protected and preserved in all ages, notwithstanding the opposition of all enemies; (Ps. 115:1–2,9, Isa. 31:4–5, Zech. 12:2–4,8,9) and of enjoying the communion of saints, the ordinary means of salvation, (Acts 2:39,42) and offers of grace by Christ to all members of it in the ministry of the gospel, testifying, that whosoever believes in him shall be saved, (Ps. 147:19–20, Rom. 9:4, Eph. 4:11–12, Mark 16:15–16) and excluding none that will come unto him. (John 6:37)
