Westminster Confession of Faith

Chapter 27: Of the Sacraments

3: The grace which is exhibited in or by the sacraments rightly used, is not conferred by any power in them; neither does the efficacy of a sacrament depend upon the piety or intention of him that does administer it:[516] but upon the work of the Spirit,[517] and the word of institution, which contains, together with a precept authorizing the use thereof, a promise of benefit to worthy receivers.[518]
