What We Believe

What We Believe

We call ourselves a Christian Reformed Church (CRC). What does that mean?

  • We call ourselves Christian because we are followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and that He is the center of human history.
  • We’re called Reformed because we grow on a branch of the church tree that emerged from the Protestant Reformation in sixteenth-century Europe.
  • We’re a Church because we believe God has called us together to be a people who belong to Him and live for Him.

What unites diverse people across North America into the CRC? What binds them into one entity? Because we agree on certain core beliefs; that is one of the reasons we gather to worship and to work, pursuing God’s plan for this world. We also believe the Bible is the authoritative Word of God, and we speak with a Reformed accent.
