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 is 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.
More: 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.
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.
