Who We Are
We call ourselves Christian because we belong to Jesus Christ and are his followers. We recognize as fellow Christians all people who accept the teachings of the Bible as summarized in the Apostles’ Creed.
Reformed because we’re part of that historic branch of the Christian church that follows the teachings of 16th-century reformer John Calvin, who worked to return Christianity to its biblical roots.
Church because God has called us to be a fellowship of his people in the world. We often call ourselves “the CRC” for short.
The Christian Reformed Church’s emblem is the cross in a triangle. The triangle represents the Trinity, our belief in the one God we know as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The cross symbolizes our belief in Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death for our salvation.
The beliefs and doctrines of our church are based on the Bible, God’s infallible Word contained in the Old and New Testaments. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that it is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks.
Priorities & Action Plans
Each ministry of the church has priorities and action plans to help us accomplish our mission in their respective ministry areas.
