'An evangelical is a plain ordinary Christian. We stand in the mainstream of historic, orthodox, biblical Christianity. We can recite the Apostles and the Nicene Creed without crossing our fingers. We believe in God the Father and in Jesus Christ and in the Holy Spirit. Having said that there are two particular things we like to emphasise: the concern for authority on the one hand and salvation on the other. For evangelical people, our authority is the God who has spoken supremely through Jesus Christ.....I want to shift the conviction from a book, if you like, to a person. As Jesus himself said, the Scriptures bear witness to me. Their main function is to witness to Christ. '
