What We Believe

Bible Believing

The beliefs and doctrine of the Christian Reformed Church (CRC) 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 the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that it is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks. While there are many translations, there are a number that the CRC has approved as being appropriate and helpful. They can be found at Approved Bible Translations for Worship. The Bible version we use in our worship is the New International Version.
