This article investigates the challenges facing the Dutch Reformed Churches in the South
African liberal democracy. It is premised on the fact that the Dutch Reformed Churches are
confronted with a new context that places the church in a position to continue its work of
bearing witness in the new dispensation. Part of this reflection involved seeking out the
Biblical principles and guidelines that Christians would have to take into account in association
with the new political order.
