Church and church order. This paper discusses the connection and relationship between church and church order within the context of the presbyterial-synodal system of church polity with a view to the rewriting of the church order of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk van Afrika. This presbyterial-synodal system was build on the basic principles of Calvin's ecclesiology and corresponding church polity. These basic principles found its way to the confessions of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk.
