Our Core Values
First CRC Barrie is affiliated with 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 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.
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.
