We are Christian Reformed because...
We belong to the Christian Reformed Church in North America, a denomination that was established in Michigan, USA in 1857.
We call ourselves the Christian Reformed Church. What does that mean?
We call ourselves Christian because we are followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was 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.
Our 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.
What we believe
The beliefs and doctrine of the Christian Reformed Church are based on the Holy Bible, God's infallible written Word contained in the 66 books the of Old and New Testaments. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks.
The Christian Reformed Church subscribes to the following confessions: The Belgic Confession, The Canons of Dort, and The Heidelberg Catechism.
The Apostles' Creed, The Athanasian Creed, and The Nicene Creed
