About

Welcome

We’re glad you’re here and hope that in these pages you will learn a bit about us and our ministry here in Dunnville. We are a community of faith, believers in God, the father, Jesus Christ, his son and in the Holy Spirit. The 3 persons in which God has chosen to reveal himself to us and which form the basis of our beliefs. We invite you to look around and check us out. If you have questions, feel free to contact us and together we can explore how God is moving in our lives.

Dunnville is a growing community on the banks of the beautiful Grand River in southern Ontario. There is a good mix of residential, light industry, agriculture and recreational activites and it is primed to blossom into a destination point for people looking for a good quality of life.

The Christian Reformed Church (CRC) includes just over one thousand congregations across the United States and Canada. About 75 percent of the churches are in the United States; 25 percent are in Canada. We’re one of only a few binational denominations: rather than split into different churches at the 49th parallel, we’re united in our faith in God.

Our Beliefs

We are the Bethel Christian Reformed Church

A wise man said that if you dont stand for anything, you will fall for everything. At Bethel we stand for the Bible as the unfailing word of God and it is as true today as it was when it was inspired in the hearts of the author

Bethel literally means “The House of God” and we aspire to be worthy of our name. It is our hope that you will see in us some reflection of God’s presence in our lives and that through the Holy Spirit you will come to know him as well.

We call ourselves Christian because we are followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was 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.

What unites these diverse people across North America? What binds them into one entity?

Among other things, we agree on certain core beliefs. That is one of the reasons we gather to worship and to work, pursuing God’s plan for this world. We believe in the Bible as the authoritative Word of God. And we speak with a Reformed accent.
