Third Reformed Church, Holland, MI

To know Christ and to make Christ known… With Heart, Head, and Hands


Jesus said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.

This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39)


We need committed Christians who have passionate hearts, think perceptively, and reach out their hands with the love of Jesus Christ. The historical purpose statement of the church, “to know Christ and to make Christ known,” continues to guide our life and mission in the twenty-first century, reinforcing Third Reformed Church’s strong tradition of worshiping God with our minds. 


We want to continue to be deep disciples while also offering our hearts in praise to God and our hands in practical deeds of service. We believe that many in our community and the world are searching not for a simplistic or easy faith, but a faith that engages the whole self before God. We seek to create not just members of the church, but disciples of Jesus who are passionate, thoughtful, and reflective, and put faith into action in the community and the world.
