Briggs' analysis of the confession "Jesus is Lord" implicitly indicates the limitations of Searle's categorization of speech acts. In an attempt to classify the confession of faith according to Searle's categorization, the theologically relevant properties of confession remain blurred. The main area of our interest is "faith discourse", defined by means of the concept of "pneumatic intentionality", which functions as a theological supplement to Searle's intentionality of mind. In this article, we aim at establishing the categorization of speech acts of faith discourse on the basis of their transformative and communicative dimensions.
