"Salvation . . . is more than an overnight happening"

Is Christian Science evangelical?

Many would answer no to this question. People tend to think of evangelicals as belonging to some of the larger Protestant denominations.

Evangelism, we might say, is most commonly viewed as religion that puts personal salvation and a subjective experience of being converted—that is, "born again" or "saved"—in a central position. Regarding Jesus as a personal Saviour and accepting the Bible literally are often part of evangelical tenets. And public profession may be a dramatic event for the convert.
