Our History

The Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRCNA) has been in existence since 1867. The year 2007 marked the 150th anniversary as a denomination and included a variety of North America wide celebrations. 

The year 2005 marked the 100th anniversary of the Christian Reformed Church in Canada. The first congregation was established in the Nobelford/Granum area of Southern Alberta. Much of the initial expansion of the CRC came as the result of post second world war immigration from Europe and particularly the Netherlands.

Ladner Christian Reformed Church was established in 1950 out of a desire of a small group of Reformed believers who wished to worship the Lord and practice their faith according to "reformed" principles. (see Our Beliefs for more detail)

In summary we believe that Jesus Christ is Lord over every square inch of life and living. This has implications on a variety of levels including, for example, education, work, marriage and family life. Because of this "all of life perspective" the early members of Ladner CRC were instrumental in the formation of what is now known as the Delta Christian School. www.deltachristianschool.org  

The church community was and continues to be supportive of such institutions as The King's University College in Edmonton, Alberta - www.kingsu.ca ; Redeemer University College in Ancaster, Ontario - www.redeemer.ca  ; and The Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto, Ontario - www.icscanada.edu . These educational institutions along The Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC) - www.clac.ca  and the Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ) - www.cpj.ca , became a reality through the grassroots efforts of members of the Canadian Christian Reformed Churches.

World Relief is another significant aspect of the CR ministry and is facilitated through the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC) - www.crwrc.org  which works in close cooperation with other world relief agencies.

The genious of the Reformed Christian faith is that it is intended to be "re-forming" or "re-shaping" ministry and life without compromising the central message and teachings of the Bible. We, therefore, seek to be a congregaiton that is culturally relevant, desiring to meet real needs in our community.
