Denominational differences . This question is very general and is more easily answered on a pair-level comparison.. In summary, the various denominations fall under numero…us categories two of which are widely known as apostate or heretical and many others vary in ideoloy and it is important to note the Historical schism top-down hierarchical structure of the Catholic faith due too its worldwide large influence. In noting more,. Families of Christian denominations in North America offers the following:. Today, there are many ways of classifying the over 1,500 Christian faith groups in North America:. Into three or four meta-groups (e.g. Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Anglican),. By "wing" (e.g. conservative, mainline, and liberal), By denomination (From the Amish to The Way) By theological belief system (Calvinism, Arminianism, etc.), and By religious family, (Baptist, Lutheran, Pentecostal, etc.) . They interpret the Bible differently. Some even came out with their own version of the Bible.
There are 3 main divisions within Christianity. They are Catholic,Protestant, and Orthodox.
Answer . Anyone who believes that Jesus Christ was the Son of God, believing that Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified and rose again on the third day, paying …for our sins with HIS blood, accepts Him as Savior and FOLLOWS Him is a Christian. The Christian religion is further broken into different denominations: Catholicism, Methodism, the Baptists, Lutherans, etc.. Though some denominations include the word "Christian" in their name, "Christian" is not a denomination in and of itself. Instead, Christianity refers to the entire body of believers, and a denomination is a smaller autonomous group within the body, defined by its governing body, hierarchy, or shared belief system. Because Baptists are not governed by a hierarchical system as are some denominations, Baptists are classified by their shared distinctive beliefs, such as local church autonomy, priesthood of the believer, and believers' baptism.. Baptists, therefore, technically do not consider themselves as a denomination, by virtue of the autonomy of the local church.
Christian churches can be denominational, but not all are.
Just have faith in a God and do it .He said upon this rock i will build my church ....choose the rock and have church Can you be recognized by the state as a minister, and a…ble to perform weddings, etc. without being ordained by a denomination? How do you set up the finances? If you don't set up a 501C3 business account with the IRS, how do you set up the tax-free church bank accounts and get tax exempt card, etc.?
Primarily because people have different interpretations of Biblical truth.
whoever wrote this first answer was on drugs. seriously. what kind of R-tard would think that MLK was the founder of the protestant church. SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT…TTTUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPPPPPPPPPPIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!
Its all in the Creed. "We believe in one, holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church." The Catholic Church is Apostolic. This means the current leaders (Pope, Cardinals, Bishops et…c) are successors of the apostles. Because of the break aways, other christian churches can not be described in the same way.
you believe what you are told from the time you are born so if you are born in another part of the world you will believe what you are told is right and ofcourse everyone is r…ight and everyone else is wrong.but some choose to use the brain they were born with when they get older and research for them selves
They use The Book of Common Prayer in their services. It is formally the Established Church of England ie part of the State - a number of bishops sit in the "House of Lor…ds". ------------------------------------------ Firstly, the Anglican Church is not simply the Established Church of England , if it is connected at all! It is all the baptised people in that country who believe in the revelation of Christ, this, recorded in scripture and explained and interpreted by the Bishops in the Seven Councils. This it is that separates the Anglican Church , from the Christian Sects! .
Yes it is. A Christian is a follower of Christ. Actually, a Christian is NOT just a follower of Christ, a Christian is also someone who ACCEPTED Jesus Christ as their person…al Savior, and has the Holy Spirit living within them as well as being Baptized. . Roman Catholic Answer No , the Catholic Church is most definitely NOT a "denomination ". the Catholic Church was established by Our Blessed Lord, Himself, on the apostle, St. Peter (see St. Matthew's Gospel 16:17-19). It is His Mystical Body and His Bride. And He promised to be with it until the end of time. He sent the Holy Spirit on Pentecost to guide it always until the end of the world. It is, as the Creed says: One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. When you are speaking about "Christian denominations" you are referring to the 30,000 (and growing) "ecclesial communities" that were originally founded by heretics in the 16th century, who left the Church that Our Blessed Lord established because of their own problems, and founded their own "churches" which have little to nothing to do with the Church that Our Blessed Lord founded. Never confuse the two.
There are several reasons why there are so many different church denominations, these are practices, style of worship, style of service, locality, language, but the major thin…g that separates, especially the smaller denominations, is theology and teaching. Religion is man made; men have turned a relationship with God through Jesus Christ into a set of dos and don'ts.
Christianity really isn't a church or a religion although there arenow churches that identify themselves as "The Christian Church"etc... These church's are more purists when i…t comes to theirbelief systems. For example, the Catholic Church has confession,the rosary as well as a number of other unique features. A ChristanChurch would normally believe that you do not need a priest to talkto God when you can simply talk to him yourself. So, I am thinking that you may be asking why Christianity has somany different denominations. The low down simple answer is becausethey don't agree. For example, The Jehovah Witness religion teachesthat only 144000 people will go to heaven while the Catholicsbelieve as long as you are baptized, spiritually born again andaccept Jesus into your heart, do not commit a mortal sin and followthe teachings of Christ then you will go to heaven which leaves awhole lot more room for more than 144000 people to get in. For themost part the Catholics and the Protestants (All ChristianReligions that are not Catholic, i.e. Baptist, Lutheran, Mormon,Pentecostal, Methodist, Jehovah's, etc...) have the same beliefsystem. So again, the simple answer is because they don't agree with eachother on various points. Answer2: Does the Bible say that there are hundreds of faiths tochoose from and that whichever one we select will be all right withGod? The apostle Paul received instructions from the resurrectedJesus Christ that said quite the contrary. Jesus sent him to peopleof the nations "to open their eyes, to turn them from darkness tolight and from the authority of Satan to God." (Acts 26:17, 18)Clearly, our choice of religion does matter. Many of the people towhom Paul was sent already had a religion. But they were in"darkness." Indeed, if all religions were simply different roadsleading to life everlasting and God's favor, there would have beenno need for Jesus to train his followers for the disciple-makingwork that he commissioned them to do.-Matthew 28:19, 20.
Denominational would be like Roman Catholic. Non denominational is not associated with a subgroup of Christianity.
