The formula which must be signed by candidate ministers of the Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk van Afrika. This article presents research on the way the tradition of the Reformed Churches according to which candidate ministers have to sign a formula, found its way into the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church, and on the degree to which this tradition was upheld in the Church. Although the Church recently accepted a totally rewritten Church Order, the existing formula was maintained with only minor and non-essential changes.
