Evangelicalism, evangelical Christianity, or evangelical Protestantism, is a worldwide, trans-denominational movement within Protestant Christianity which maintains the belief that the essence of the Gospel consists of the doctrine of salvation by grace, solely through faith in Jesus's atonement. Evangelicals believe in the centrality of the conversion or "born again" experience in receiving salvation, in the authority of the Bible as God's revelation to humanity, and in spreading the Christian message. The movement has long had a presence in the Anglosphere before spreading further afield in the 19th, 20th and early 21st centuries. This category includes churches which profess an Evangelical belief in Christianity, many also being Nondenominational. This is not a category for churches of Lutheran, Presbyterian or Methodist backgrounds, which also refer to themselves as Evangelical, for these churches, see Protestant churches.
