Chapter Summary

The influence of the work of Abraham Kuyper on the South African branch of the reformed churches and specifically on the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC) is well known. This chapter focuses on the impact of Kuyper on the theology and ecclesial identity of the Uniting Reformed Church in Southern Africa (URCSA) and investigates the impact of Kuyper's theology on the former Dutch Reformed Mission Church (DRMC) and the Dutch Reformed Church in Africa (DRCA). The chapter discusses the major tenets of Kuyper's influence on the theology of these churches. This will be explored through the work of two historical South African theological movements, namely the Alliance of Black Reformed Christians in South Africa (ABRECSA) and the Confessing Circle (Belydende Kring). The chapter also presents an overview of the process of church reunification which started in the family of Dutch Reformed churches from 1975.
