Blyth CRC Church
"It is the vision statement of Blyth Christian Reformed Church to be a body of believers that knows Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and to be a vibrant, unified and growing body of God's people. Because God has reached out to us with his saving grace in love, we proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and Lord through word and deed ministries."These ministries are:
- Celebrating God’s presence through joyful worship
- Cultivating each person’s gifts for service
- Communicating the Good News to our community
- Caring for the needs of the people in our congregation and in the community
"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God."
Our Statement of Faith
We believe that the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, the only infallible rule for faith and life.
We affirm three creeds—the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed—as ecumenical expressions of the Christian faith. We also affirm three confessions—the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort—as historic Reformed expressions of the Christian faith, whose doctrines fully agree with the Word of God.
Along with these historic creeds and confessions, we recognize the following Reformed expressions of the Christian faith, adopted by synod as contemporary testimonies: the call for unity, justice, and reconciliation of the Belhar Confession and the witness of Our World Belongs to God: A Contemporary Testimony.
