The main difference is in the form of church government.
Methodists use a form of church government called Congregational which, broadly speaking, means that the congregation - those who are members of a specific local church, make the decisions regarding the local church.
Presbyterians use a Presbyterian form of church government which is representative in nature. The local congregation selects representatives who then form a "session". The session then makes the main decisions for the local church. It's very similar to the way things are done in US governing bodies.
In reality, some methodists practice a form of government called connectional congregationalism that isn't altogether different from the presbyterian form of government.
In regard to doctrine, there are several variants of both Methodist and Presbyterian denominations and within these variants there can be quite a few differences. Generally, the doctrine is very similar.
Methodists are a subset of Protestant. Methodists are a kind or type of Protestant, most likely derived from the Calvinism. Presbyterians are more Calvinist; Methodists are derived from Anglicans.
Methodists and Baptists ` Presbyterians Apex: Methodists ***Apexvs*** Presbyterians
Presbyterians start with P while congregationalists starts with C.
Catholics, Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, and Anglicans.
Mostly in the way the churches are organized. Presbyterians condemn homosexuality and do not ordain homosexuals as ministers.
Protestantism is a general category used to describe several Christian religious traditions including Methodists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and others. Lutheranism is a religious tradition based on the teachings of its founder Martin Luther.
Presbyterians are just one type of Protestant denomination. So, all Presbyterians are Protestant, but not all Protestants are Presbyterian.
A major difference between Methodists and Congregationalists is the fact that the Methodist church has bishops while the Congregationalists elect their deacons in the church. The Methodist church also has creeds and the lectionary that are similar to the Church of England.
The Roman Catholics and the United Methodists are the predominant religions followed by the Presbyterians and Lutheran churches.
Presbyterians are a subset of Protestants, so they are Protestants. Not all Protestants are Presbyterians, however.
The Presbyterians are Protestant and do not recognize the authority of the Pope.
The Episcopal Church and the Methodists were the largest. The Lutherans and Presbyterians were next. There was a sizeable Jewish population in New York City.
The Roman Catholic Church is the largest followed by the United Methodists, Lutherans and Baptists. There are thousands of Presbyterians and Episcopalians as well.
There are six religions in New Hampshire. The six religions are Roman Catholics, Methodists, Baptists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, and Puritans.
That depends on the practices of the denomination, but in general the answer is Yes for most main-line denominations (Presbyterians, Lutherans, Methodists, etc.)
Not exactly. The Church of Ireland is just one of the protestant denominations in Ireland. There are others like Methodists and Presbyterians, amongst others.
Protestant is the word that refers to a Christian that is not affiliated with the Catholic church. The protestant church includes Methodists, Presbyterians, Baptists and many other denominations.
Not at all. If the denomination of your current church won't allow it, there are lots of other denominations that will (e.g. Lutherans, Methodists, Episcopals, Presbyterians, etc.).
A 'sect' is a subset, segment, or smaller group within a larger one. So, for example, the Baptists, Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, and Catholics are all Christian sects.
The largest denomination in New Brunswick is the United Church of Canada. They are made up of congregationalists, Presbyterians and Methodists. The second largest is the Anglican Church of Canada and then Catholics.
The Roman Catholic Church is the largest. Next would be the Anglican Church of Canada and the United Church of Canada (Presbyterians & Methodists) and the Lutheran Church.
There are many differences. The two biggest differences are in the sacraments of Communion and Baptism. Churches such as Methodists, Lutherans, Episcopalians, and Presbyterians baptize infants and receive communion anywhere from once a month to every Sunday. Other denominations such as Baptists, Nazarenes, and other Evangelicals, receive communion less often and only baptize older children and adults.
The ANGLICAN church IS protestant but not as protestant as its breakaways, i.e. Methodists, Baptists or the Calvinist Presbyterians who considered Anglicans too papish, at least in appearance if not in practice.
They're almost the same thing. Presbyterians believe in baptizing babies, while Calvinists don't. That's the only major difference.
