Evangelical Christian Movement


Evangelical Churches and the Evangelical movement are diverse congregations and denominations Christian Protestants who are spread throughout the world and claiming three basic beliefs in their teaching : the Trinity , the Salvation only by faith in Christ and biblical inerrancy.

They are characterized by evangelism , a personal experience of conversion, with a faith biblically oriented and a belief in the relevance of Christian faith in cultural matters. They also tend to defend a free interpretation of the Bible, so that there are different degrees of differentiation among evangelical churches at the level of ecclesiology (government), liturgy (worship style) or secondary doctrines, giving rise to what is known as Names.

Andy is himself a born again Christian and as in many instances I have sought out recommendations from the show often discovering many gems along the way.

I've always had a rather sceptical view of born again Christians wondering what it is the individual concerned needs saving from? No matter how hard I try, I can't get over the thought that there a skeletons in the closet with these people that fuels their rather zealous embracing of the concept of being 'saved' and what better subjects to project this guilt onto than the minds of a children?

Although many children attend the Church directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady choose to follow three in particular. First is Levi. A likable intelligent boy home schooled by his mother. Among the gems of Levi's home schooling is that global warming is a political creation by the left because the increase in temperature in the United States is only half a degree. Clearly the word 'global' failed to ring any bells with mother who wantonly throws science and fact out of the window in favour of the slightly more fantastical teachings of creationism. Levi has aspirations of becoming a preacher and even gives a sermon at Jesus Camp and as we will later see even gets some advice from my particular ...
