Evangelicalism - Open Bible, God's Word Evangelicals are usually described as Christians who:
  • are devoted to the Bible as God’s word,
  • feel it is important to share their faith and engage in charitable activity,
  • emphasize the cross of Christ is central; and,
  • believe in conversion -- that each person must turn from their sin, receive forgiveness through Christ and commit to a life of discipleship and service
Evangelicals are a significant segment of the Christian population in Canada. Almost half of the 24, 000 Christian congregations in Canada are Evangelical.
It is estimated that about 10 - 12% of Canadians, or 4 million people, are Evangelical.
