Evangelicals by denomination

Evangelicals are defined in the World Christian Database as "a subdivision mainly of Protestants consisting of all affiliated church members calling themselves Evangelicals, or all persons belonging to Evangelical congregations, churches or denominations; characterized by commitment to personal religion."

Some denominations are thus 100% Evangelical through their membership of bodies like the World Evangelical Alliance. Other denominations have smaller evangelical movements within them: individuals who identify as an Evangelical or who also attend an evangelical denomination.

Two new fields show the percentage and total number of affiliated Christians in 2010 who are Evangelical, for each denomination.

The fields are available for adding to any query that includes denominations. See for example the query "Evangelicals by Denomination" on the Denominations home page.
