The Christian Reformed Church was established in the United States and Canada by Dutch immigrants who brought with them a heritage that is still a deep-rooted part of our church community.

It is clear, however, that God's children are people of all races, colors, and cultures, and the CRC is actively striving to reflect the diversity of our world and among God's people.

Please visit the CRC's Office of Race Relations to learn more and connect with others in this important ministry.


Life Issues

Hot topic issues of life and death ethics - stem cell research, the death penalty - are not included in the mandate of the OSJ, which focuses mostly on a small set of justice issues that relate to root causes of poverty and hunger. However, because justice issues of life and death are, rightly so, of great importance to the CRC and broader church community, we have provided a few links here that we thought might be valuable resources.
