and other denominations that are baptistic (which means they baptise only by profession of faith) like Evangelical Free, Nazarene, non-denominational community churches, etc. The conservative side of denominations that baptise both infants and by profession of faith would also be considered evangelical. They include Dutch Reformed, some Presbyterians, some Lutherans, French Huguenots, some Episcopals, etc. Evangelicals are really quite a big group with some minor differences among themselves.
Evangelicals hold to the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed even if they have never heard of them. Those doctrines always show up in each church's statement of faith. They believe that salvation is through faith in Christ which is bestowed by God's grace. They don't believe that evangelizing makes them right with God, but is something they do because Christ has instructed them to do so. This evangelism is best done by example rather than talking, because if their lives are beautiful people will want what they have, and if their lives are ugly no amount of talking will make anyone want what they offer.
The definition of the word "evangelical" means those who believe in the good news of the gospel.
It seems most evangelicals, but hardly all, have fallen into a state of disrepair, which is why they have been tending to act silly, legalistic, holier than thou, anti-intellectual, and war-mongerish, but they will eventually get over it.
