Presbyterians are Evangelicals
The word “evangelical” comes from the Greek word for “gospel” or “good news”. Historically, “evangelical” has been used as a label for those who hold to the Bible as a statement of absolute truth. It is the written Word of God, the good news worthy of our complete trust. We believe that the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are fully “inspired” or “God-breathed.” We believe that the whole counsel of God concerning everything necessary for us to know in order to live for the Lord is either directly written in the Scriptures or can be rightly deduced from them. Nothing is to be added to them by new revelations of the Spirit or the traditions of men.
The final judge of all controversies of faith can be nothing else but the Holy Spirit speaking in the Scriptures.
