AbstractThe DR(NG) Church, besides its own thinking and theologising, is influenced bythe sphere of the new political and cultural situation as well as the sphere ofthe postmodern paradigm. These factors bring challenges for the way in whichthe DR(NG) Church understands itself as a church and its mission within theSouth African context. In meeting these challenges the church has to have ahistorical understanding of these influences within its context. From this historicalunderstanding norms and values could be deducted to serve as contextually relevantdirectives for the future. Consequently they will also contribute to shaping the futureof the DR(NG) Church.
