The Nederlands Dagblad ("The Netherlands Daily") is a Dutch newspaper, available throughout the country, with a daily circulation of about 33,000 issues in 2006. In 2000, the circulation was 32,000 issues.

It 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 and it 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 (GPV), a former Dutch political party. In recent years, it has offered a broader perspective on contemporary issues from a Christian point of view. The largest group amongst readers switching to the Nederlands Dagblad comprises non-Christians looking for an alternative view from that of the mainstream Dutch press.[citation needed]
