Pence Accepting VP Nomination Defines Himself As A Christian First

At the Republican National Convention yesterday evening, Indiana Governor Mike Pence accepted the nomination for vice-president. (Full text of remarks.) In acknowledging his introduction to the audience by House Speaker Paul Ryan, Pence said:
Paul knows me well, and he knows the introduction I prefer is just a little bit shorter: I’m a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.
UPDATE: The New York Times yesterday traced the details of Pence's religious journey from the Catholic Church to Evangelical Christianity.
