First Christian Reformed Church of Sioux Falls is one of nearly 1,000 Christian Reformed congregations in the United States and Canada. Together with these congregations, we have missionaries worldwide.
We call ourselves Christian because our focus is Jesus Christ, the ruler of the universe, the Church, and our lives (Colossians 1:15-20). Because the Father loved sinners, He sent Jesus into the world to deliver children, women, and men from sin, and today invites each person to know Him and follow Him through the power of the Holy Spirit!
We are Reformed because Jesus is the source of our daily life (Colossians 3:1-4). We believe that He pours His life into our hearts when we prayerfully study the Bible and follow what it teaches (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Because we place our confidence in the Bible as the way the Lord speaks to us today, we make every thought, desire, motivation, and choice captive to His Word.
We are a Church because we believe God has called us together to daily desire and seek to live a life worthy of the name of Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:5-14). We believe every member should strive to be an ambassador of Jesus and a contender for His cause in the world.
