About us

Welcome on the website of Bijzondere Noden. The english name of Bijzondere Noden is Board for Special Needs (BSN). The BSN is part of the Gereformeerde Gemeenten (in English: Reformed Congregations, summarized as GG), a Dutch denomination with about 105,000 members.

This church acknowledges the Bible as the inspired Word of God and accepts the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dordt and the Heidelberg Catechism, as their main creeds. BSN has been founded by the general synod of the GG. Board members of BSN are appointed by the general synod. The board is responsible for decision making and supervises the execution of the activities of BSN, which are described in the mandate of the general synod. The board also reports to the synod and appoints office staff to carry out the day-to-day execution of activities, such as: communication with partner organizations, raising awareness of church members, fundraising and administration.
