How different is ethics from religion?

From my view ethics have the same principle of how a religion sees ethics. However ethics only differ when one uses those ethics. Does the person use them towards their religion or some goal? ethics also can mean a moral principle within the individual. Religion will hold these ethics to the individual but it is up to the individual to decide do these ethics fit me? So ethics are different in the form of who and how do they apply these ethics to what end. Or in simple terms what purpose do these ethics arise from and what is their highest goal.
