The Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches welcomes you! (Former name: Confederation of Reformed Evangelical Churches. Please see our statement concerning the name change here.)
We're a vibrant community of evangelical believers shaped by the Reformation. We welcome you to our web site as a first step in getting to know one another.
Greetings from the Presiding Minister
Welcome to the website of the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches (CREC). The CREC is focused on building communities of believers that begin each week with God-honoring worship and then joyfully extend that worship into every day of the week through our families, our friendships and our vocations. The church is the Body of Christ, and from this central truth flow all the issues of life.
The CREC has steadily grown and expanded her gospel ministry throughout the world over the last few years. There are now member churches in 6 countries and 3 continents. We are constantly fielding inquiries from churches and pastors around the world. Our stateside and foreign churches are active in planting new mission churches. It is our desire to be responsive and helpful to all who inquire about our federation and her ministries. If we can be of service to you or your group, please write firstname.lastname@example.org or call (907) 746-2123.
Our desire is to further the work of God’s Kingdom throughout the earth and to see the gospel ministry prosper so that the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ (Rev. 11:15). We work toward the day that every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Phil 2:10, 11).
As the CREC continues to grow, we are humbled by the Lord’s kindness and patience with us. By God’s grace, we shall continue laboring together with a generous and patient spirit. Our gathering of churches is not intended as a separation from other orthodox believers who confess the name of Christ, but rather as a gathering within that broader church, that we might work together effectively for the reformation of the church and the redemption of the world.
Pastor Jack Phelps,
Presiding Minister, CREC
