Christ Community Church of East Islip
The Christian Reformed Church is a denomination of about 300,000 members
in 1,000 congregations across the United States and Canada.
We call ourselves
Christian because we belong to Jesus Christ and want to be his followers. We recognize
as fellow-Christians all people who accept the teachings of the Bible as summarized in
the Apostle's Creed.
Reformed because we're part of that historic branch of the Christian church that
follows the teachings of 16th-century reformer John Calvin, who struggled to return
Christianity to its biblical roots.
Church because God has called us to be a fellowship of his people in the world.
Our emblem is the cross in a triangle
The triangle represents the Trinity, our belief in the one God we know as three persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The cross symbolizes our belief in Jesus Christ's sacrificial
death for our salvation.
