Glossary: Evangelicals

Term used in Chile to refer to all non-Catholic Christian churches with the exception of the Orthodox (Greek, Persian, Serbian, Armenian) and the Mormons. Most Evangelicals are Pentecostal. Some would say ""Protestant"" refers to non-Pentecostal churches of the Reformation, but they themselves (i.e., the Methodists and Presbyterians) also identify with the term ""Evangelical."" The 1992 census used both ""Protestant"" and ""Evangelical"" to ask about religion, but the difference is meaningless. Pastors of all denominations urged people to say they were ""Evangelicals.""
