The contemporary evangelical movement has its origins in the 18th century, when the First Great Awakening was deeply influencing American religious life, while the Methodist movement was beginning to renew parts of British Christianity, although this was at first resisted by the majority of the Anglican established church.
Evangelicals, along with trade unionists, Chartists, members of co-operatives, the self-help movement and the Church of England were involved in setting up the temperance movements in the U.S., Ireland, Scotland and England.

In mainland Europe, especially in the German and Scandanavian countries, 'Evangelisch' ('Evangelical') is a general designation for churches adhering to beliefs of the Reformation (otherwise known as Protestantism) e.g.
Evangelical Lutheran Church, Evangelical Reformed Church, or Evangelical Methodist Church, in contrast to Catholic or Eastern Orthodox churches.
However, this is often considered to be an incorrect use of the term, as evangelicals generally hold that the Bible is uniquely the supreme revelation of God, whereas pentecostals generally believe that the Bible and current day prophecies are equally the revelation of God.

Noel Gibbard has been an evangelical pastor and lecturer at the South Wales Bible College, so this history is written from an insider's point of view.
Evangelical movements are not new; in the nineteenth century, evangelicism dominated religious thought and received a fresh impetus in Wales from the Revival in 1904.
Nevertheless, the movement continued to grow, and in a clear and simple style Noel Gibbard records its progress: its work at the National Eisteddfod, the establishing of its two journals, one in Welsh and later one in English, the annual camps they have organised, conferences, missionary work and the setting-up of several Christian bookshops.

 Undying Worm, Unquenchable Fire - Christianity Today Magazine
Evangelicals have been debating the subject ever since, both sides producing books and articles defending their views and contesting the opposition.
Plainly evangelical Anglicans were lining up on opposite sides of this issue: Stott, Hughes, Wenham and Michael Green on the side of conditionalism; Packer, Harmon, Gerald Bray, and Alec Motyer on the side of traditionalism.
Although evangelicals are wary of appeals to tradition as compared to Scripture, the testimony of history, in which few major theologians have wavered from traditionalism, places a considerable burden of proof on conditionalists.

He was born in Cardiff in 1929, educated at the University of Wales, Cardiff and University College, Dublin, Professor Jones held the chair in Welsh at Aberystwyth from 1980 until his retirement.
He therefore followed the trend of evangelicals of the time in leaving the old Christian denominations (see also Evangelical Movement of Wales and Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones).
Many Welsh scholars such as R Tudur Jones contributed to the struggle through their support of pressure groups such as Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg; while Jones has been a supporter of such campaigns, his major contribution to the promotion of the language is in the field of teaching Welsh to adults.

Encourage evangelism, that is the act of sharing one's beliefs in the gospel with others in order to convince them to convert, either in organized missionary work or through personal evangelism.
Evangelicals generally believe the Bible to be reliable and the ultimate authority in matters of faith and practice and subscribe to the doctrines of sola scriptura and sola fide.
Active involvement in secular society is a characteristic of modern evangelicals, who see the danger of withdrawal on the one hand, and accommodation, on the other, and try to take the middle course, that of following the biblical injunction to be "in the world yet not of the world".

One other good thing about Aberystwyth is that we - Evangelicals in England - do have something to learn from Welsh Christians that is not merely a temperamental matter: a balance in their faith between knowledge and emotion.
There is often an emotional intensity about their services, yet without fanaticism and with the mind still plugged in, which is from the Spirit, and which we need more of.
