There is no doubt after the Latin American Congress on Evangelism held in Bogota, Colombia that conservative evangelicals represent the overwhelming majority of Protestants in the southern hemisphere. Radical and secular theologians were conspicuous by their absence.
The fact that a congress on evangelism has on its agenda the subject of the social responsibility of the church is a sign of Christian maturity. It indicates a healthy change of attitude in evangelical ranks.
The time is ripe for the formation of hundreds of new urban churches in Latin America because (1) mass evangelism is making a great impact, and (2) newcomers to the city are open to receive religious teaching. What is needed is an approach that meets their needs and circumstances.
