Reincarnation is not a Christian belief. Mr Hoddle's reported beliefs in reincarnation and disability as a punishment for sins in a past life are not shared by Christians - from any wing of the church, not only evangelicals.
An evangelical is someone who believes that Jesus is both God and man; that the Bible is the ultimate authority in all that it addresses; and that the traditional beliefs of the Church such as the physical resurrection of Jesus are true. An evangelical owns a commitment to Christ as their personal saviour and a desire to live out that faith in the community.
