Evangelical Manifesto

Evangelical Manifesto refers to a document made public in May, 2008 that seeks to describe who evangelicals are and what they believe. The purpose of the document is described as "a serious call to reform—an urgent challenge to reaffirm Evangelical identity, to reform Evangelical behavior, to reposition Evangelicals in public life, and so rededicate ourselves to the high calling of being Evangelical followers of Jesus Christ." ^ [1]^
