The Reformed faith derives its name from the Protestant Reformation in the sixteenth century. Men such as Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli and John Calvin were used by God to break with the errors of the medieval Roman Catholic Church. This break has become known as “The Reformation”.
The teaching of the Reformed faith basically follows the teaching of these Reformers. The Reformers did not want to change God’s Word, but to return to the truth contained in it. Thus the Reformed faith today is the faith which Scripture teaches.
Many Christian churches today do not fully maintain the truth that is taught in the Bible. The Bible itself indicates the importance of maintaining the true doctrine, and the Reformed faith best reflects what God Himself teaches in the Bible. Look up the Bible passages referred to, and judge for yourself, “examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.“ (Acts 17:11).
The first Canadian Reformed Church was formed in Burlington, Ontario in 1955 by post-war immigrants from the Netherlands. It was and still is known as Ebenezer Canadian Reformed Church. It soon grew and churches were formed all over Ontario and across Canada.
Although many refer to us as a ‘Dutch’ church we are mainly second generation Canadian citizens. All our services, hymn books (‘Book of Praise’) and liturgy are in English and many of our members are of non-Dutch background.
