Background

Evangelicalism is a Protestant Christian theological stream which began in Great Britain in the 1730s. Its key theological beliefs are: A belief in the need for personal conversion (or being "born again"). Actively expressing and sharing the gospel. A high regard for biblical authority, especially Biblical inerrancy. An emphasis on teachings that proclaim the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Basic Beliefs:

  1. Sanctification: The Holy Scriptures declare that sanctification begins in the new birth and is the work of God's grace through the Word and the Holy Spirit, by which those who have been born again and delivered from the willful practice of sin are enabled to live in accordance with God's will, and to seek earnestly for holiness without which no one will see God.
  2. The Bible: The Holy Scriptures in their entirety are the inspired, inerrant, written Word of God.
  3. Jesus Christ: The Holy Scriptures declare that Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man, in Whom the divine and human natures are perfectly and inseparably united. As ministering Servant, He lived, suffered and died on the cross. He was buried, rose from the dead and ascended bodily into heaven to be with the Father, from whence he shall return. He is eternal Savior and Mediator, who intercedes for us, and by Him all men will be judged.
