Would we dare say that the Emergent Church is not evangelical?

by Doug Nichols

When the Reformers in the 15th century coined the phrase evangelical it was because they reclaimed two truths ...

1. Salvation by Grace through Faith alond (and)
2. The Authority (inerrancy) of Scripture.

The Emergent Church denies the inerrancy of the Word of God and is close to doing away with salvation by grace through Christ alone.

So, may be when people ask us what we think about the Emergent Church, simply respond by saying, It is not an evangelical movement.
