Need help getting this JavaScript to format with different date options like mm/dd/yyyy , mm/dd/yyyy 00:00 etc.

<%@ language="VBScript" %>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
        <head>
        <script language='Javascript' runat='server'>

            function jsGetPastTimeCurrent(minutes) {
                var d = new Date();
                var past = new Date();
                past.setTime(d.getTime() + (minutes*60000));
                var utcString = past.toUTCString();
                var tz = utcString.indexOf("UTC");
                if (tz > 0) {
                    utcString = utcString.substring(0, tz) + "CT";
                }
                return utcString;
            }
        </script>
<% newDate=jsGetPastTimeCurrent(-360)%>
        <title>Timestamp</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <p>
    <h2><%= newDate %> </h2>
