The CRC IN Australia
Our vision is to expand the Kingdom of Jesus Christ on earth by creating Bible-based contemporary local churches and ministries (Acts 1:8).
The first Australian CRC church began in 1945 in Adelaide. Since then CRC churches in Australia have expanded to reach every state and territory within the nation.
Ministry training has been a major focus of the CRC throughout the world. In Australia, the CRC College of Ministry is the current training organisation. Their mission is to produce Christ-following disciples who will create churches and change worlds.
