In the 1960s serious discord within the Reformed Churches (Liberated) (cf. no. 8) led to the foundation of the Reformed Church (Liberated, Unconnected). In 1969 this church adopted its present name (Netherlands Reformed Churches). Various factors played a role. The believers who formed the new church were critical of the tendency within the GK(v) to consider itself the only true church in the Netherlands. They also disagreed with the GK(v) on its strong emphasis on the classical confessions of faith and on the need for distinct political parties and schools. The NGK does not provide its own theological training, though there is a theological seminary in Amersfoort, run by some ministers on a private basis, which is held in high esteem by the congregations. The official policy of the church is to send its students for training to the Theological University of the CGKN (cf. no. 3) in Apeldoorn.

Note: We did not manage to contact this church. Therefore, we cannot exclude that its address has changed or that the church does not exist any more.
