Join Grace Church for an examination of some of the challenges in modern evangelicalism, and an exploration of what patterns of the reformation we can consider in our own time. Join us as leading Christian evangelical pastors Don Green, Tom Ascol, Travis Allen, and Phil Johnson come together to consider the path for Christians forward in a chaotic world.
What is an evangelical? What is evangelicalism? If you think those questions have easy answers today, you may not be up to speed on current events.
The terms evangelical and evangelicalism have a biblical origin, from the Greek word for gospel (euangélion), so their meanings might seem simple to nail down: an evangelical is someone who evangelizes, who preaches the gospel (evangel); and evangelicalism is a movement recognized for its evangelistic character. The etymology may seem to put the answer within easy reach, but the reality has become far more complicated.
Over the past two decades, we have witnessed the decline of once-stalwart evangelical institutions and the fall of celebrated evangelicals, the inevitable result of pragmatism and worldliness. We’ve watched groups of evangelicals coalesce into competing political blocs, some voting right and some voting left, but all of them self-proclaimed evangelicals.
With evangelicalism divided, in some cases irreparably, this is a good time to regroup, pick up the pieces, and examine ourselves. This is the perfect time to reassert the creeds and confessions, the Reformation solas, and the doctrines of God’s sovereign grace. The theology that once set the standard of orthodoxy for evangelicalism is needed, now more than ever, to captivate the hearts of God’s people and guide the churches and their pastors.
