Council of Churches in the Netherlands

Founded in 1968 (forerunner: the Ecumenical Council of the Netherlands, founded in 1935).

Basis: The Council of Churches in the Netherlands is a fellowship of churches which confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the scriptures and therefore seek to fulfil together their common calling to the glory of the one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

There are nine provincial councils of churches and close to 300 local councils of churches.
