The label "evangelical" has shifted and evolved over time to a place in our present day when the term comes with all sorts of baggage - from cultural and political connotations to even racial and patriarchal assumptions.
In this 3-part series, Pastor Jay and Matt Gilleskie discuss the word in order to help the Bible Church navigate some complex cultural circumstances by clearly staking out our identity as an evangelical church.
In Part I, they address the following questions:
1. Why is it important to define the term "evangelical" in our day?
2. Why is it so hard to do so?
3. What definitions have been offered in the past and in our present? (No value judgments!)
