TUA belongs to the Christian Reformed Churches in the Netherlands. The Christian Reformed Churches do not have statutes. Their statute (within the meaning of Article 2:2 of the Dutch Civil Code) is their church order. The TUA is an independent entity as referred to in Article 2 Book 2 of the Dutch Civil Code and has juridical personality.

The Church Order of the Christian Reformed Churches in the Netherlands contains, among other things, regulations concerning the administration, finances, supervision and (disciplinary) jurisdiction applicable to the members of the Church, the congregations and other parts of this Church. This Church Order - available only in Dutch - can be found at the website of the Christian Reformed Churches.The Christian Reformed Churches have received a grouparrangement ANBI from the Tax and Customs Administration. This means that individual churches and other institutions that belong to this denomination have been designated as ANBI. This also includes the TUA.

Vision and objective

Thankful for God's blessing on our university as a theological training entity of the Christian Reformed Churches in the Netherlands, we want to dedicate ourselves to the development of the Reformed practice of theology. Our heart's desire is to be useful for the continuation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and thereby to be of significance to society. We train people for the office of minister or for other service in God's Church and Kingdom, and conduct academic theological research. In addition, we provide services and training for churches and Christian organisations.
In all this we strive to promote the development of the Christian Reformed Churches and the unity of the Church of Christ.
