Duncan Christian Reformed Church has adopted a vision statement to guide its work and worship. The statement grew out of the words of the apostle Paul in his letter to the Ephesians:

"I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one spirit...one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all...." (Ephesians 4:1-6)
The vision statement included general goals in different areas of our life together. We try to meet these goals as fully as possible.
  • To make God's word -- the Bible -- the focus and basis of our living and decision making (Psalm 19:7 - 11: 2 Timothy 3:16).
  • To build a community where each person has a place and a role in our life together (1 Corinthians 12:12 - 26; Ephesians 4:11 - 16).
  • To make our worship faithful and joyful (Psalm 150; Colossians 3:16).
  • To reach into our community personally and as a church (Matthew 5:13 - 16; 1 Peter 2;9, 10).
  • To promote and support the ministries of Classis British Columbia Northwest and the Christian Reformed denomination (Matthew 28:16 - 20).
The Christian Reformed Church of Duncan began in 1952 and the first building was erected in 1956.

The Reformed Church came into existence during the Protestant Reformation (1500 - 1600). Its Biblical understanding is informed by the work of John Calvin, a Frenchman who lived in Geneva, Switzerland.

The bulk of what we believe we hold in common with the Christian church around the world and throughout the ages. Three creeds adopted by the worldwide church centuries ago summarize the most important tenets of our faith: the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.
