Our Name

We call ourselves the Christian Reformed Church in North America. 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.
  • North America tells you where we are situated; but it also tells you we’re connected with other Reformed denominations in other places around the globe.

Our Mission

  • As people called by God,
  • We gather to praise God, listen to him, and respond.
  • We nurture each other in faith and obedience to Christ.
  • We love and care for one another as God's people.
  • We commit ourselves to serve and to tell others about Jesus.
  • We pursue God's justice and peace in every area of life.

Our Vision

The Christian Reformed Church is a diverse family of healthy congregations, assemblies, and ministries expressing the good news of God’s kingdom that transforms lives and communities worldwide.

Our Emblem

The Christian Reformed CrossOur 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.
