Why are we called Evangelical?

The full name of our church is the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), although we are quite different from our Evangelical brothers and sisters in the Pentecostal tradition. Essentially, we believe the point of the church is to share the good news of Christ in both word and deed.  Like the disciples of old, we are “evangelists” for Christ’s message of love and compassion. But we don’t believe any one group of people is “saved” (since God’s grace is freely available to all)
