ET: The church order appointed during the National Synod of the Reformed Churches, convoked and held at Dordrecht in the years 1618 and 1619.

At the publisher’s request, Kuyper allowed this church order (cf. 1883.02) to be reprinted, with a few editorial changes, as an independent volume. The passages in the Church Order of Dordt that no longer applied due to changes in the relation between church and state in the Netherlands were removed from the main text and placed in footnotes.

There was a growing awareness that De reglementen en besluiten voor de Nederlandsche Hervormde Kerk [The regulations and decisions of the Dutch Reformed Church] could no longer provide proper guidance for the church. As a result, there were calls for a new edition of the Church Order of Dordt, which had been in effect until 1816. The publisher C.F. Callenbach at Nijkerk had already put out a compactly printed edition of the church order in February 1886, but it did not feature modernized spelling as did the version included by Kuyper and Rutgers in their 1883 edition of the Forms of Unity. A subsequent edition of the church order, edited by the Rev. W. van den Bergh (1850–1890) and the Rev. G.H. van Kasteel (1850–1931), was also published by Callenbach in 1887. That edition was also printed in compact format, but it used the more readable, modernized text of Kuyper and Rutgers.
