Which Christian Denomination Are You?

    Wikipedia says that a denomination is “a subgroup within a religion that operates under a common name, tradition, and identity.” We know our PI readers are diverse, and we’re curious to see how many branches of Christianity we cover!

    Of course, there are five major extensions under the main umbrella of Christianity: Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Anglican and Protestant. But then each group breaks down even further, with sections of Protestants including Anglican, Baptist, Congregational, Lutheranism, Methodism, Presbyterianism and Reformed. Whew! Where do you and your family fall in and how does that affect your beliefs?

    Answer the polls below then let us know more in the comments!

    Team Project Inspired
    We here at Project Inspired want to guide and inspire teen girls to be true to themselves and to God. We want to show young girls how to be people of value and confidence – how to be your own best selves – through leading a Christian life. Who are we? We're a team of girls, like you. We edit the site, we post to social media, we hang out in the chat rooms and forums. We talk with you, we listen to you, and we love you!


    1. I am a member of the Reformed movement!

      It’s a Protestant denomination which adheres to the teaching of Calvinism. We are generally extremely conservative, adhering to traditional marriage with no sexual activity outside of it, we encourage children as a blessing, we believe women should not be pastors or elders, and that wives and husband hold a complementary role in marriage, we are doctrinally oriented with an emphasis on a sound Biblical understanding.

      You can learn a lot about the Reformed movement at my home church, which posts all of it’s sermons online for global listeners.

    2. I go to a Mennonite Church. There are many kinds of Mennonite churches out there, varying from very strict to where they wear dresses a covering, to my church, where we wear skirts and blouses and a veil. There are also Mennonite churches where they wear jeans and nothing on their heads, yet they have the same beliefs as other Mennonite churches, thus their name. I live in Ohio so we have Amish and Mennonites all around us. I do not know where I am going to go to church when I am older but for know I am in my church and I choose to respect how they dress and how conservative we are. I would love to chat with anyone who wants to know more about the Mennonites and I would love to know about other denominations. 🙂

    3. I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints (more commonly reffered to as Mormon). I was born into a Mormon family but that’s not why I go to church and live the gospel. I prayed for myself. I studied the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I found for myself that they are both the word of God. I will be a proud Latter-Day Saint the rest of my life and more.

    4. I am also a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! Most people know as Mormons but that is just a nickname. WE ARE CHRISTIANS. We believe in God, Jesus Christ and in the Holy Ghost 🙂 I’ve prayed to know for myself if the Book of Mormon and Bible are true. I know they are! The joy the restored gospel brings to my life is immense!

    5. I grew up in a Mennonite church situation, but honestly don’t see myself as a denomination.. My church pastors are southern and went to Baptist Seminary and although my church is Non-Denominational some of the teachings are Baptist.. We dont really teach Baptist views though.. its super complicated.. We are Protestant though..

    6. Baptist. And independent, fundamental, traditional Baptist church located in the south (but not Southern Baptist). Leave one out and it’s not quite the same! 🙂 I really love my church! We’re old-fashioned (but not “strict”) singing with hymns and reading KJV, but I love the relaxed family feel we have. My church is a second home. I love the songs we sing, the heart my church has for missions, our passionate preacher, and our growing ministries. I love how everything is truly based on the Bible, not what a particular “religious scholar” has to say. Our youth is getting closer and our church is slowly expanding. I believe God’s doing great things there!

    7. Wait where’s the Pentecostal Christian under Protestantism???
      Because of my family and what I believe. 🙂
      I’m a Pentecostal Protestant Christian who goes to an Assemblies of God Church! 🙂

    8. My parents say we’re non-denominational but I’ve gone to our church (a Southern Baptist one) for so long and accepted Christ while I was a member of that church, that I consider myself, personally, a Baptist.
