Christian Reformed Church of North America (CRCNA)

We are a Christian church that has its roots in the early church of Jesus and his disciples. We are a church that also has roots in a historical movement called the Reformation that took place in 16th Century.

To summarize the fundamentals of the Christian Reformed Church faith statement, we provide this outline below, taken from the CRCNA website with links to more in-depth reading they provide.
