Abstract

Prompted by the recent census, the author of this essay reflects on the question of evangelical believers’ identity. The first part offers a short historical overview of the Reformation, and the second speaks about similarities and differences between the Protestant and the Radical Reformation. Since there are theological differences between the two, and since the Radical Reformation stemmed from the same starting point as the Protestant Reformation, the third part considers what would be the best way to call and identify believers of those churches. In the end, speaking from the Croatian context, the author sides with the term “churches of the Reformation heritage,” although the problem remains as to which term should be used for believers in such churches.
