Abstract | Full Text

This article deals with the underlying methodological principles and relevance with regard to Reformed church polity and focuses on the following aspects: a definition of Reformed church polity; an identification and explanation of the sources and norms concerning church polity; the task and field of research. Furthermore, some important and fundamental elements or pillars on which Reformed church polity rests are examined. The principles discussed in this manner form the parameters for the study and development of Reformed church polity.
