In the process, the four men were forced to write a confession of faith , providing incriminating evidence against themselves for their opposition to Catholic beliefs against the Scripture. The document read to reaffirm their faith, even in the face of death, is considered the first "Confession of Faith " made in Brazilian ground, and became known as "Fluminense Confession" or "Confession of Guanabara ". This document is a testament of the perseverance in the faith of men of whom this world is not worthy. It inspires us to stand firm in the face of the powers of this world and death, trusting in God's absolute sovereignty and his eternal Word.
