Abstract

Reformed ecclesiology: A few major tenets based on Calvin. Reformed ecclesiology is not a closed system. Notwithstanding differences, there is however a remarkable consensus on the major tenets of the doctrine of the church. An outline - mainly of Calvin's view - is given in the article, and the following arguments are brought forward: Jesus Christ is the only head of his body, which is a covenant community. The church is seen as a community sui gen eris, confessing its union with Christ and living its faith in the world.
