No. Frequently, sainthood is bestowed upon individuals whose lifestyle or conduct reflected the ideals of their religion, for example, Mother Teresa.

Many Protestant churches do not accept the title of "saint" other than as a generic term referring to any believer.


The problem with your question of course is the assumption that people can perform miracles. This is simply not the case. If anything miraculous happens, it it not by any of our means that it happens but rather by God's power. Therefore, no saint can perform miracles. They might be blessed with God working through them, but it is not they who perform miracles.

Other than that, the above answer seems pretty accurate.


In The Bible all believes were called "Saints" so all believers are saints.

Protestants accept saints the same as the Roman Catholic Church, as people who have led a holy and spiritual life. However, they do not accept the canonisation process of the Church, not miracles attributed to them as their own miracles, only miracles in Christ's name. Most also regard all Christians as 'saints'. Furthermore, protestants on the whole do not pray to saints or use them as interceders between God and us and regard the practice as necromancy. They adhere to scripture which states that Christ is our only mediator and advocate, and that we should not 'contact' the dead.

Do all Christians believe in the same miracles?

No. Across the history of the early Church and in the Middle Ages, there was an increasing expectation of more spectacular and even bizarre miracles. In the early years, dramatic and fanciful miracles were attributed to saints. The Catholic Church has moderated its teachings on miracles somewhat, but still maintains that miracles happen on a regular basis. The expectation of the miraculous fell away sharply among the Protestant Churches, which generally no longer see miracles. Against the early Protestand movement, the Catholic Church insisted that the possession of miraculous gifts proved that Catholicism was the authentic Church. Even today, Church protocol still requires that two miracles be attested before a person can be canonised as a saint.
