Description: The Christian Reformed Church is a protestant Christian denomination in the United States and Canada. Having roots in the Dutch Reformed churches of the Netherlands, the Christian Reformed Church was founded by Dutch immigrants who left the Reformed Church in America in 1857. The first Christian Reformed Church in Canada was founded in 1905.

The Christian Reformed Church is theologically Calvinist. It believes that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It affirms three creeds (the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed) and three confessions (the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort). It has also adopted a Contemporary Testimony (Our World Belongs to God) and an ecuminical faith declaration (the Belhar Confession). To learn more, visit
