Acts 1:8

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses.”

Jesus Christ, after his death and resurrection, spoke these words of promise into the lives of his followers. He

continues to speak these words of promise into the lives of his people today. We are his witnesses.

As followers of Jesus, our purpose is to evangelize and disciple.


To reach and to teach —

In the name of Jesus Christ

By the power of the Holy Spirit

And for the glory of God the Father


First Christian Reformed Church of Oostburg is a faith community being shaped by the Gospel. The death and resurrection of Jesus is at the center of all that we do and all that we are. In gratitude for Christ’s sacrifice which

makes possible our very salvation, we seek to live in obedience to the Creator and Sustainer and Redeemer of the universe: “Loving God with all our hearts, souls, and minds –and loving our neighbors as ourselves.”


We boldly preach and teach the whole counsel of God’s Word — The Bible.

We point o the Lordship of Jesus Christ over every aspect of life and culture.

We joyfully share the good news to all who would hear and issue the call to repent and believe.


Time change, but the mission stays the same: “We are witnesses.”

May we remain faithful and filled with the Holy Spirit.

God has poured his grace out upon First CRC and caused it to flourish for 149 years. May he continue to bless this church until Jesus Christ returns!


In Christ,

Pastor Drew
