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.
