Origins in Print

Origins is designed to publicize and advance the objective of the Archives. These goals include the gathering, organization, and study of historical materials produced by the day-to-day activities of the Christian Reformed Church, its institutions, communities and people.

A subject index to articles in Origins is available via the CRC Periodical Index of several periodicals, maintained by the staff of the Hekman Library. To limit your search in this database to Origins material, select it in the “Publication” box. A hard copy index of the first twenty years is available in the Fall 2003 issue.

Volumes from 2015-present are available only in hard copy from Heritage Hall. Contact us at if there is a back issue you would like to purchase.

An annual subscription to Origins currently costs only $15 for two issues.
