“The term classis comes from the Latin word meaning fleet of ships.” The Central Plains Classis is a “fleet” of local congregations “sailing together”, being carried along by the winds of God’s Spirit.


Central Plains Classis is a gathering of Reformed Church in America (RCA) churches located throughout Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas formed by shared faith, history and beliefs. We’re partners in ministry. We share in the larger ministry of the Reformed Church in America. We share in local ministry together using shared offerings to plant new congregations, strengthen existing congregations and develop leaders. Worship services range from traditional to contemporary, but we all believe in the truth of the Bible and the saving significance of Jesus Christ.


The Central Plains Classis is a fellowship of congregations and other ministries called by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to be the very presence of Jesus Christ in the world. Our task is to equip all our congregations to be healthy reproducing ministries. As a result, every church and ministry in our classis will enjoy the use of a large variety of ways to do one courageous action: follow Christ in mission, in a lost and broken world so loved by God.


We believe the central role of Christ’s Church is to “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that (Christ has) commanded….” Matthew 28:19 (NIV)

We believe that the Central Plains Classis exists to support, equip, and empower our member churches, various ministries and enrolled ministers of Word and sacrament by providing vision, leadership, and supervision.

We believe that planting new churches and revitalizing existing churches is vital in the ministry of making disciples for the Kingdom of God. Thus, the classis should take a lead role, with our regional synod and denomination, in planting and revitalizing congregations.

We believe that our classis should be a model of the unity of believers that Jesus prayed for in John chapter 17. To achieve unity, we will treat each other with a welcoming Christian love and respect, even when we disagree and we will hold our relationships with each other in Christ as one of our most important assets.
