HistoryEdit

The paper was founded in 1944 as a semi-resistance paper called Reformatie Stemmen (Reformatory Voices). After the war it was renamed De Vrije Kerk (The Free Church) and later Gereformeerd gezinsblad (Reformed Family Paper). In 1959 it became a daily.

The paper obtained its current name in 1967. For many years it had a liaison with the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands (Liberated) and the Gereformeerd Politiek Verbond, a former Dutch political party. In recent years, it attempts to offer a broader perspective on contemporary issues from a Christian point of view. It also prides itself on focusing on less populated regions nationwide (vs. the Randstad).
