NAE, LifeWay Research define "evangelical"

“The NAE/LifeWay Research definition includes four statements to which respondents would strongly agree in order to be categorized as evangelical:
• The Bible is the highest authority for what I believe. 
• It is very important for me personally to encourage non-Christians to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior.
• Jesus Christ’s death on the cross is the only sacrifice that could remove the penalty of my sin. 
• Only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Savior receive God’s free gift of eternal salvation.”   BPNews
