Belgic Confession & Ordo Salutis

The Belgic Confession is a "Reformed" confession of the sixteenth century. Notice how these first Calvinists and Reformers did not put regeneration prior to faith.

"We believe that this true faith, being wrought in man by the hearing of the Word of God and the operation of the Holy Spirit, regenerates him and makes him a new man, causing him to live a new life, and freeing him from the bondage of sin." (Article 24)
