CWRC is dedicated to a Christian witness to those involved in the Roman Catholic religion while maintaining a firm witness to the errors of Rome. To this end, CWRC has written, debated, and produced theological information designed to help Christians witness to Catholics and better understand the intricacies of Romish theology. The goal of the ministry is three-fold.

1.We wish to stand for the truth of salvation by faith alone, through free and sovereign grace alone, by the finished work of Christ alone. In standing for this truth we must compare the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ with the gospel of Rome. This entails a formal apologetic agenda in which the errors of Rome are exposed and refuted.
2.In a loving manner, we wish to introduce the God fearing, Bible respecting, religious Roman Catholic to the magnificent gospel of Jesus Christ.
3.We wish to strengthen the individual Christian as well as the Church by educating through conferences, symposiums and written materials.
CWRC, A Christian Witness To Roman Catholicism, is a 501-C-3 entity working under the auspices of Reformed Bible Church of North Clarendon, Vermont, along with the guided care of an independent advisory board. There are also several Christian men who serve as consultants and as contributors to this ministry.
