Classis Iakota

 
What's a Classis?
 
The word originates in Latin and has a meaning similar to the word "class," as in "class of ships" or "class of people."  In the Calvinist churches that arose in continental Europe (aka "Reformed"), it came to mean a regional group of congregations.
 
Bethel CRC is part of the Classis Iakota of the Christian Reformed Church.
 
Classis exists to help the various congregations work together on common projects, hold each other accountable to the Gospel, and  encourage each other as we fulfill our part of the church's common mission - to testify to Jesus Christ in word and deed.
