Dutch Reformed Church

Dutch Reformed Church (in Dutch: Nederlands Hervormde Kerk or NHK) was one of many branches of churches established during the Protestant Reformation in Europe in the sixteenth century. While the Dutch Reformed Church was based in the Netherlands, other churches holding similar theological views were founded in France, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, England, and Scotland. The theology and practice of the Dutch Reformed Church, and its sister churches in the countries named, were based on the teachings of John Calvin and the many other Reformers of his time. Since a 2004 merger, the church has formed a part of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands (Protestantse Kerk in Nederland, or PKN). Currently it has nearly two million members in the Netherlands.
