Christian Denominations in the world:

image

Christians strongly believe that there is only one God and apart from him none other can be considered as God. But it surprising to know that there are plenty of denominations in this religion even though everyone believes in the same God. The following are some of the Christian Denominations in this world:

Roman Catholics:
The Roman Catholics are led by the Pope and the Bishop of Rome. Pope is considered as the Head of the church and his command or decision is always followed at the Vatican City. The churches are governed by the successors of Peter and the other Bishops who are in communion with him.

Baptist:
The Baptists are one of the most diverse set of Christians in this world, and they insist the freedom of thought and expressions. Baptists believe in the Bible, and they strictly believe in following all the things that are said in the Bible. They accept in the lordship of Christ and believe in getting salvation through faith and get baptised through the confession of faith. They believe that people should be baptised after they understand and believe in Christ and thus they do no encourage child baptism.

Methodist:
Methodist is also known as the Wesleyan, and they feel obliged to be witnesses to Christ and believe in living a life that will reflect the teachings of the Bible.

Lutheran:
The Lutherans belong to the ancient and medieval churches of Christianity. They are very much devoted to doctrines and peaceful teachings. They believe in having faith in Jesus Christ and that all the churches are built on the principles of Luther. The Lutherans accept the Bible as the word of God, and they are inspired to follow everything that is written in the Bible.

Presbyterian:
The Presbyterian can be traced back to the 16th century. These people adhere to the reformed theology. John Calvin articulated many principles, and some of them were the sovereignty of God, justification that is got from grace and the authority that the scriptures have on humankind.

Protestant:
Protestants are one of the largest branches of Christianity, and this group was named Protestants as they protested against the Roman Catholics and divided from them. They believe in having faith in God and that Jesus Christ has control over his people and the Pope must not be considered as God. Martin Luther King was one of the key people in the division of Protestants from the Roman Catholics. He wrote many documents condemning the doctrines and principles that were followed by the Roman Catholics.

Pentecostal:
The Pentecostal believe in Jesus Christ, and they try not to get attached to worldly things. They believe that the power of tongues is got as a sign of baptism and they also believe that they will receive the gift of healing, joy, prophesy and other spiritual gifts by praying.

History of the Catholic Church

Roman Catholic churches are based on the churches in Vatican City which is led by the Pope, and it is considered to be one of the largest branches of Christianity in the world. Roughly about one in seven members in the world are Roman Catholics.

Origin of the church:
Roman Catholic churches claim that their churches were established by Christ himself. They believe that Christ had appointed Apostle Paul as the head of the church as it is recorded in the Bible in Mathew 16:18. It is said that the Roman Catholic Church was established around 590 CE by the Pope named Gregory I.

Early Churches:
After the certification of Christ, the disciples were instructed to spread the gospel to the entire world, and they were the ones who created the structure for the early Christian Churches. Simon Peter who was a disciple of Jesus Christ later became a very influential leader in the Jewish community. Saul who initially persecuted the Jewish community later accepted Jesus Christ and started preaching the Gospel. Saul adopted the name Paul and became a great evangelist for the early Christian churches. The ministry that was done by Paul is also known as the Pauline Christianity, and these were mostly the gentiles who were neglected by the Jews. Another group named as the Gnostic Christians believed that Jesus was the spirit of God who was sent from above to bear the sins of men on the cross.

The Jewish Christians were scattered after the fall of Jerusalem in the 70 AD. The two major Christian groups that were left out was the Pauline Christians and the Gnostic Christians. The Roman Empire then recognised the Pauline Christians as the major dominant group, and Roman Catholicism was made the official religion in 380 AD for the Roman Empire.

Protestants:
About 1000 years from then, these Roman Catholics were referred to as Christians and only in the year 1054 AD there was an official split in the Roman Catholic religion. The Eastern Orthodox churches separated from the Roman Catholic churches. The other major split happened in the sixteenth century when a group called the Protestants were formed, and they again split from the Roman Catholics.

In the year 1517 CE Martin Luther King published about 95 Theses which had documents that were against the doctrines and practices of the Roman Catholics Churches and the Popes. He began the Protestant separation from the Roman Catholic community.
Only in the 1870 CE, it was declared that the Pope’s decisions were beyond reproach and it was considered as the decision of God himself. The policy of Papal infallibility was accepted all over the Vatican City, and people considered the Pope as someone who is right next to the position of God. Later in 1960, several measures were taken, and the Catholic churches were modernised.
