The Catholic Church is evangelical at her core, having been established by Christ for the purpose of spreading the splendor and fullness of Truth Who is Christ Himself.

"All Catholics are called by their Baptism to be Evangelical Catholics. This means (in part) living according to [the] eight principles of Evangelical Catholicism:

1. The Lord Jesus Christ is the crucified and risen Savior of all mankind, and no human person can fully understand his life or find his dignity and destiny apart from a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus. It is not enough to know who Jesus is; we must know Jesus." ~Fr. Jay Scott Newman
