== == This question is very general and is more easily answered on a pair-level comparison.

In summary, the various denominations fall under numerous 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.

The Catholic religion is the original Christian religion. All other Christian denominations can trace their roots back to the Catholic Church. Since there are about 33,000 Protestant denominations, it would be impossible here to discuss all the differences.

All Christian denominations came from the Catholic Church, or came from those denominations that broke from the Catholic Church.

The prefix "inter" means "between" or "among". Denomination usually refer to the various Christian (usually not Catholic) denominations such as Presbyterian, Baptist, AoG etc. So an interdenominational church would include people from various denominations with all the various emphasis of beliefs. That is, emphasis of beliefs that distinguish denominations. There is a common set of essential doctrines amongst the denominations that enable this to occur. The interdenominational church finds unity in this common set of essential doctrines.

The largest religion in Scotland is the various Christian denominations. The largest Christian denomination is the Protestant church, represented by the "Church of Scotland" and the smaller "Free Church of Scotland". The Protestant churches are mainly "presbyterian". The other main Christian denomination is the Roman Catholic Church. There are also some Anglicans and Baptists among the Christian denominations. The other religions include Islam, Jewish and Hindu, perhaps around 5% of the population together.

The Pope is the head of the Catholic Church but most other Christian denominations do not recognize his leadership beyond that.

There are no differences. The Catholic Church is the original Christian Church and is the only Church which still holds to all the Christian truths as handed down by the Apostles.

Both are Christian denominations. Catholicism is the oldest Christian denomination, with the Papacy going all the way back to St. Peter the Apostle. Baptists are Protestants.

There are several. The Church of Christ, Baptist, Brethren, and Mennonite denominations all practise adult baptism.

well a Methodist Christian bapitizizes differently like sprinkling water on them Answer Methodists are one denomination out of many within the Christian Church. They are an offshoot of the Church of England and were originally formed by John Wesley, although Wesley remained a Church of England minister all his life. They are regarded as Christian as they uphold the main doctrines of the Christian Church (Trinitarian belief, and that Christ came to earth as God incarnate, was crucified, died and resurrected and is our Saviour) in the same way that all Christian Churches accept the salvation of Christ. Any differences between Methodists and other Christian denominations are restricted to peripheral minor differences in doctrine, and the structure and worship customs of the Church.

No. The only Sacrament which the Catholic Church recognizes, from other Christian denominations is Baptism.

Catholics recognize baptisms performed by most major Christian denominations. In particular, the Catholic Church recognizes all Protestant denominations. As the Dutch Reformed Church is a Protestant church, the Catholic Church should recognize it.

The Catholic Church is the largest Christian church. All Catholics are Christian, but not all Christians are Catholic.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or Mormon Church regards itself as a Christian Church, although most other Christian denominations disagree. In favour of the Mormon Church being a Christian religion is that the Church worships Jesus Christ as the Son of God and Saviour. This belief is central to Christianity. Against the Mormon Church being a Christian religion is the Mormon belief in polytheism. However, there is arguably an element of polytheism in at least some other Christian denominations.

People disagree on the details of how Christianity is properly practiced.

Of course it does. The Protestant church consists of many denominations of the Christian church that are all orthodox in their beliefs. As forgiveness after repentance is an important aspect of Christian teaching, forgiveness is not only believed in the Protestant church but is a necessary part of Christian life.

The word denominations means separate named or valued forms. For example:1) currency (Paper money is printed in various denominations.)2) churches (The Baptist church has many different denominations.)

There are more than 30,000 Christian denominations. There are about 40,000 Christian church organizations.

Since the pentecostal denominations are part of the Christian Church, they do believe in salvation.

The Salvation Army is a Christian organization and NOT a church denomination.

The Orthodox Church is not a denomination. The Orthodox Church is the original Christian church, founded by Jesus Christ and His apostles. "Denominations" are the Christian groups which trace their histories back to splitting off from the Orthodox faith.

Most Greeks are members of the Greek Orthodox Church. The oldest Christian Church in existence.

It would depend on which particular sect you feel is important but the leaders of the various denominations would be considered important. Examples are; The Pope and his officers. Archbishops and Bishops etc Leaders of the various councils Most importantly the congregation
