Abstract:This dissertation examines the different theologies and movements that shape and influence the Black Church while comparing and contrasting them to black evangelicalism. By comparing and contrasting the theologies to black evangelicalism, the research allowed for the evaluation of the theological and practical reasons for the rejection of those theologies and the acceptance of black evangelicalism. The research covered the theologies of evangelicalism (conservative, liberal and black), liberation theology, black Protestantism, Pentecostalism, and Islam. Within these theologies a subset of issues, movements, people, and doctrines are evaluated in light of orthodox Christianity. Orthodox Christianity is the standard for evaluation, since the Black Church is composed of seven major black denominations: three Baptist, three Methodist, and one Pentecostal. The dissertation challenges the belief that the other theologies can biblically address the need of the Black Church and the African-American community, since all except black evangelicalism fail to affirm both doctrine and practice in the African-American context. The uniqueness of the black experience in America calls for a theology that rightly addresses that experience. Consequently, the research does not necessarily seek to invalidate the other theologies but to show that black evangelicalism provides the answers that the black community can trust based on orthodox Christianity.
