Abstract

The treasure of our Reformed confessions was formulated in a time that is today commonly referred to as the time of Christendom. We search these writings in vain for an intentional missional theological expression that focuses on the non-believing world outside of Christendom. The reason may be the fact that these confessions were essentially intended as an urgent call to a deformed Christian church living within the cultural boundaries of Christendom. Today, however, the time of Christendom has passed. The content of our Reformed tradition is still foundational for the church of Jesus Christ, but it is now confronted with the near overwhelming reality of a non-Christian world - which is not somewhere in the fading distance of our planet, but has become a confronting reality in the context of our own everyday existence. The time has come for our Reformed confessions to be missionally refocused.
