Almost nothing if you examine the beliefs carefully. Unless you take the fact that most feel that they along have all the answers correct, the differences include:They interpret and believe in different aspects of the Biblical teaching to their own sects preferencesThet have different criteria for entry into heaven or condemnation to HellEven the belief in the Christian Jesus is not a universal concept. Some Christian groups believe in a singular godhead, others in a Trinity.

Some demoninations believe that the bread and wine of Jesus actually were from the body and blood of Jesus. Other demoninations believe that it is just a representation of blood and body, and it was just bread and wine. There are other differences I can't name off-hand.

Different Christian denominations have different beliefs in the nature of Jesus. As there are a number of these different Christian churches active in Australia, there is no consensus among Aussie worshipers.

There are many different religions who believe that they are "Christian." For example, I met a Catholic who said that she was a "Christian." In some ways, they are right. If you follow Christ, then you are, in essence, a "Christian." There are many denominations. Some have a pastor, some do not.

Mormons believe the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are 3 separate individuals and do not believe in the Trinity. They also believe the Book of Mormon contains additional scriptures not written in the Bible.

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

Unitarians, Jehovah Witnesses, and Mormons don't believe in the Trinity.

Most Christian denominations are trinitarian, meaning they believe in a Holy Trinity of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Though the exact nature of the Trinity may differ denomination to denomination, in essence, trinitarians believe that Jesus is both God and the son of God, because all members of the Trinity are one being.Some denominations, though few, are non-trinitarian, meaning they don't believe in the common view of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit being three elements of one Holy Trinity. Some Pentecostal branches and a small handful of newer Christian movements are non-trinitarian, including Jehovah's Witnesses. Most of these denominations believe that Jesus is son of God but not God. Incidentally, most other Christian denominations do not accept these types of denominations as "Christian" at all because the Bible is fairly clear about the nature of Jesus.

Different Christian denominations have different beliefs in this respect. But in general, the do believe in some kind of afterlife, either in heaven or hell right when you die, or returning back to life right here on Earth, on Resurrection day, which seems to be related with the Second Coming of Jesus. Probably if you look around (with different Christian denominations), you will find yet other variations.

Greek philosophy is not necessarily Christian. To be a Christian, you believe that Jesus is the savior of humanity.

Catholics have mass. Catholocism is a Christian denomination. I don't believe any of the protestant denominations have mass.

There are many differences, but perhaps most significant is that Christians believe Jesus was the son of Yahweh, whereas Muslims believe Jesus was a prophet like Moses or Isaiah.

Different religions, and different denominations within religions, will each have different ways that they believe you will be judged, and different perspectives on judgment.

Christian denominations generally take their lead on the matter from Christ's teachings and believe in the equality of all humans. They recognize that humans are equal but fill different roles.

There is not really a difference. I go to a Methodist church. We all are Christians: Baptist, Methodist, Christian, just all different names mostly. We all are Christian and believe in God with some small differences.

Pentecostal Christians are very spirit-oriented although many Christian denominations call on the Holy Spirit and believe that it dwells in each believer. Pentecostalism is not a denomination though. Rather it is a movement with in many denominations.

Some Christian denominations believe and teach that the world was created according to biblical accounts, and other denominations do not. Denominations that do believe this are generally called fundamentalist denominations. The word fundamentalist does not refer to Christianity alone. Any religious group that holds to the belief that their holy writings are completely authoritative in every way, and beyond any secular criticism would be called a fundamentalist religion.

For a start, different Christian denominations will interpret the Scriptures differently. The basic Christian idea is that there is some kind of afterlife. Some believe that at death, you will go to heaven or hell immediately; others believe that you will be unconscious until the resurrection - which would pressumably happen when Christ returns. Several other religions (like Islam and the Bahá'í Faith) also believe in some afterlife; the idea being (similar to that of some Christian denominations) that the next world will be quite different from this one. Some religions believe in reincarnation - according to these beliefs, instead of going to a different world (like heaven or paradise), your sould would come back to this world, several times - in other bodies. A person who doesn't believe in some kind of god would probably tend to believe there is no afterlife, either.

Millions of people believe in God and Jesus Christ. One can see this clearly through the many Christian denominations all around the world.

Those can be:* People who are believers in other Christian denominations. Most of them are known by the generic term "protestant denominations". * People who believe in non-Christian religions, including Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Islam, Bahá'í Faith, and others. * Non-religious people; this includes people who don't believe in God at all (atheists), and people who believe God can't be proven or disproven (agnostics).

No, they completely separate themselves from other Christian denominations, or Christendom, and believe they are following the example of the first century Christians.
