Have you ever wondered what it means to be an Evangelical Christian? The word ‘Evangelical’ is so nebulous that it has been used in all manners of caricature, even by Evangelicals ourselves. Well, a lot of people think that a good definition of “Evangelical” is if you can affirm the Lausanne Covenant. Countless churches and mission organizations use the Lausanne Covenant as their litmus test for Evangelical faithfulness and orthodoxy.
