Abstract and Keywords

The adjective ‘evangelical’ denotes Christian groups that emphasize personal salvation by faith in the atoning death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, enabling moral faithfulness, and a Spirit-filled life. In this essay ‘Evangelicalism’ denotes movements, first among Friends within the United States after 1887, then worldwide, that emphasized experiential Christian spirituality and affirmed biblical doctrines and principles considered historically orthodox and normatively Quaker. This chapter describes how the Evangelical Friends Church International (EFCI) arose from within a context of fundamentalist–Modernist tensions and Holiness Revivalism impacting on the Christian faith community during this era. It outlines how this organization emerged through a series of conferences, and through leadership and publications, seeking to strengthen Quaker witness and ministry. It details how, by 2010, EFCI had become a significant component of global Quakerism.

Keywords: evangelicalism, Evangelical Friends, fundamentalist, global Quakerism, Holiness Revivalism, ministry, Modernist
