In short, Asian American Evangelicals do not need to be apologetic about their lives, experiences and perspectives. Rather, by following the path of the Son of God into the far country, by receiving the infilling of the Spirit of God poured out on all flesh, and by faithfully attempting to live out such a Christ-centered and Spirit-empowered faith in the footsteps of their evangelical forebears and ancestors, Asian Americans may then be able to bring their theological gifts to the conversation table, gifts that will challenge the discussion while simultaneously enriching the fare for all those concerned about the “euangelion” in the present time. It is time to theologize as Asian Americans, not just as Evangelicals, in order that Evangelicalism itself can be renewed and invigorated for the sake of the gospel and in anticipation of the reign of God.
