|The aim of the article is to analyze the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan between years 1945 and 1987 – since the arrival of the new Kuomintang government until the lifting of martial law. In 1971, the Presbyterian Church started publishing so called public statements. These documents were declared to be ecumenical works, however, they had very strong political context. Publishing political document by religious organization was considered to be quite controversial act. The very first public statement was one of the first public appeals of the self-determination of Taiwan published on the island. At first the article shows historical and socio-political background of the public statements. The analyzed public statements were published for certain events and all of analyzed documents were politically concerned. In these documents it is possible to observe legitimization strategies used to explain own political involvement of the church. They are therefore analyzed.
