who we are

First CRC embraces worship that is biblically faithful, confessionally reformed and stylistically blended. In worship, God speaks to us and then we respond. Our services are designed around a biblical theme which is centered on the pastor's preaching of God's Word. Here at First, all ages worship together incorporating a variety of musical styles so that together we glorify our Lord.

We come together for morning worship at 9:30AM. Nursery is available for infants and toddlers. We also offer Children's Worship for children (ages 3 through 2nd Grade) who are dismissed from the service shortly before the message.

If you would like to plan a visit to our church, we invite you to contact Pastor Loren, Pastor Andy or the office. We'd love the opportunity to meet you face to face. 

what we believe

As members of First Christian Reformed Church we believe that the Bible is the infallible and authoritative word of God. (1 Tim. 3:16)

We believe God created the world; the world fell into sin; God redeemed and is redeeming the world. We believe that Jesus Christ saves us from the consequences of sin and that the world will be complete when He comes again.

We believe God is a God of Grace. His grace, not human decision is the decisive factor in our salvation. Believers do not choose God as much as God chooses believers. (John 3:5)

We believe that covenant is the richest biblical concept to describe God's relationship with His people. In covenant God binds himself to His people in promise and commitment. Covenant relationship is why God sent Jesus, because of a commitment to save His people. (Jer. 31:31-34)

We believe in God's sovereignty. God is the main actor in creation. He is ultimately in control. So despite a world we humans have broken with sin, ultimately God's plans will triumph and all will be made new. (Jer. 29:12 & Rom. 8:28)

Our Story

First CRC is a testament to the steadfast loving-kindness of our covenant-keeping God. From generation to generation, He has proven Himself faithful. The story of First CRC records the evidence of His love and mercy in all our lives, reminding us of God's precious promises. This is our great comfort and joy.

The apostle Paul painted a perfect picture of the point of God's great work as follows:

"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone. In Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit." - Ephesians 2:19-22

Our Forever Faithful God is at work in each of us. Treasure these things in your heart, and speak of them often.
