Posts Tagged ‘Evangelical Manifesto’

In light of the recent publication and subsequent discussion on the Evangelical Manifesto, I thought that it might be helpful to remind everyone what the word evangelical means. 

It is from the Greek root: evangelizesthai “bring good news,” from eu- “good” + angellein “announce,” from angelos “messenger.”  So evangelicals should be about delivering, or announcing the good news. 

Matthew 28:18-20, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

To God be all glory,
