About Us

Striving to inspire global missions change and impact the lives of many

Our history

Sparked by Rev. Doug Springer in 1995, Christian Missions Resource Centre grew out of a desire to help Canadian churches mature by developing strong missional attitudes and actions. It all began with Doug actively participating in the mission field after pastoring in Canada’s far North.  Doug came to the conclusion that a strong focus on missions was influential in church individual and church growth.  This compelled Doug to start the Christian Missions Resource Centre which officially began ministry on July 4, 1996.  

In its early years, CMRC conducted seminars and short-term missions trips with teams from the United States and Canada. By focusing on helping churches flourish in a vibrant and healthy environment, CMRC expanded its reach overseas to include ministry in over 25 countries. The Christian Missions Resource Centre’s cornerstones are built on providing resources to the mission field through short-term missions trips, supporting overseas local pastors, and video production teaching.

what we believe

Psalm 72:8 “He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.”

Christian Missions Resource Centre is founded upon deep missional, biblical roots which have shaped our Statement of Faith.  The core of our belief system is founded upon;

  1. The Bible as the only inspired Word of God and as our final authority.
  2. The only living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
  3. The creation of humans by God and in their total depravity through sin.
  4. The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His miracles; His vicarious and atoning death; His bodily resurrection; His ascension and His High Priestly ministry.
  5. Justification by faith and the new birth as essential for personal salvation.
  6. The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  7. The eternal destiny of individuals in either Heaven or Hell according to their acceptance or rejection of the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.
