Abstract

Mission and unity: A Dutch Reformed perspective
The decisions on church unity and ecumenical relationships, taken by the Bloemfontein synod of the Dutch Reformed Church (October, 1990) came as a welcome surprise to many and as an unwelcome disappointment to others. The importance of six resolutions adopted by synod, as well as their implications for the mission of the church, are discussed. If Christians were to fulfil their calling in this respect, the author contends, they will have to leant to look in a new way in five directions: at one another; at their own hearts; at new models for unity, at the local church; and, finally, at God Himself.
