The term "evangelical" has a wide range of meanings within Christianity.

On this web site, we define it as: "the conservative wing of Protestant Christianity, comprising many denominations and faith groups that tightly hold to historical Protestant Christian creeds, beliefs and practices."

"Evangelical" is an umbrella term which Includes Christian Identity, Fundamentalist, Pentecostal and Reconstructionist, some Baptist and many other groups of denominations.

Some examples of evangelical denominations are: Assemblies of God, Southern Baptists, Independent Baptists, Black Protestants, African Methodist Episcopal, African Methodist Episcopal Zion; Church of Christ, Churches of God in Christ, Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, National Baptist Church, National Progressive Baptist Church, Nondenominational, Pentecostal denominations, and the Presbyterian Church in America. Many theologians would also include as evangelicals the conservative members and reform movements within such mainline denominations as the Episcopal Church, USA, the Presbyterian Church (USA), and the United Methodist Church.

In addition to the evangelical wing, most theologians consider there to be two other main wings of Protestantism: the mainline and liberal/progressive denominations.
