You need to define what you mean by evangelical.
Euangelion (more accurately, in context, ?? ???) means “Gospel” or “good news.” If you’re in Europe, it usually is the catch-all for “Protestant” (in the U.S., the mainline Lutheran communion is the ELCA - Evangelical Lutheran Church of America). While the ELCA has the word “Evangelical” in it, I don’t think you could lump them in the context that I think you are speaking about.
Evangelicalism, at least in America, basically means anything that isn’t mainline Protestant. It centers on one-on-one faith sharing and witnessing, conversion, and a very conservative bent on scripture/canon.
The very first disciples must have been evangelical… in the first 50 years of Christendom, it’s estimated that the church grew from 12 to 500,000. That’s pretty evangelical, if you ask me - in the purest definition of the word, that is.
Words/labels are often misleading. Let’s be sure we know what we’re talking about, and not discredit others because of generalization.
What I mean by Evangelical are those who hold to evangelical Protestant beliefs.
They would include members of the Southern Baptist Church, some other Baptists, non-denominational churches, bible churches, etc. The majoriity believe in believers baptism, symbolic baptism and communion, sola fide and sola scripture.
Most believe the Catholic Church to be an apostate Church that chose not to repent during the Reformation. (They also think this of other Protestant church. One of my coworkers think Lutherans are not even Christians.)
