Who We Are
Allen Avenue CRC in Muskegon, Michigan is a local congregation of the Christian Reformed Church of North America.
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 are called Reformed because our church emerged from the Protestant Reformation in sixteenth-century Europe.
We are a Church because we believe God has called us together to be a people who belong to him and live for him.
There are nearly 1,000 other Christian Reformed congregations in the United States and Canada, all working together to make our world a better place to live through the power of Jesus Christ. To learn more about the Christian Reformed Church in North America visit www.crcna.org.
