Abstract

The evangelical movement in the Netherlands has grown a lot in the past decades. This growth is a result of the increasing discontent of orthodox believers with the religious and moral climate within the mainline churches and the decreasing internal integration of these churches. The growth of the evangelical movement is also associated with the supply of the evangelical organisations, which is characterised by an orthodox Protestant message, a traditional morality, and a faith which is rooted in personal experience and which is relevant to everyday life. Finally the success of the evangelical movement is connected with the rational way of working of the evangelical organisations. We have argued that the evangelical movement in the Netherlands is not a fundamentalist movement pur sang. Fundamentalism was defined as religious orthodoxy in active opposition to modernisation. The Dutch evangelical movement is an orthodox movement in mainly passive opposition to some cultural aspects of modernisation. We do not expect this movement to radicalise in the coming years.
