GET TO KNOW US

WHAT IS A CRC CHURCH?

CRC means our church is apart of the Christian Reformed Church of 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. 
Our BeliefsThe BibleDaily Devotional


We’re called Reformed because we grow on a branch of the church tree that emerged from the Protestant Reformation in sixteenth-century Europe.

Reformed Accent


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.

List of MinistriesNews​​​​​​​

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.

OUR 
SAFE CHURCH

Calvary Christian Reformed Church, as one expression of God’s family, strives to be a community where every person is treated with respect and embraced in love, regardless of age, race, gender, or socio-economic status. We are committed to creating an environment that nurtures the dignity and safety of every person.


We acknowledge that sin still finds expression within our church. One expression of sin is the misuse of power and abuse of other people. The root of all forms of abuse is the irresponsible use of power, including the betrayal of trust within the body of Christ. We celebrate that Christ died to set us free from the bondage of sin. But, until Christ returns, Calvary Church needs to take deliberate measures to guard against the sin of abuse. The following Safe Church Policy is one of those measures.


To report an instance of abuse or concern please email SafeChurch@calvarycrc.ca.
