Best Christian Denominations

The Top Ten

1 Catholicism

Jesus said Peter will lead the church on earth. Matthew 16:18
Jesus called Mary our mother. John 19:27
Jesus said remember Him in the Eucharist. 1 Corinthians 11:24
Jesus gave the apostles and their successors the ability to take confessions. John 20:23
Jesus said He is God. Luke 18:19
Jesus Jesus Jesus. You can't see Catholicism without seeing the Lord Jesus Christ at the core

The original and still the best. Catholicism was set by Christ and carried on by Peter and the apostles and their successors. It has lasted for about 2000 years with many miracles and followers to back it up

We're the oldest of them all, with the Jews as our base. Christ was king of the Jews and he, the Son of God, founded the Catholic Church, not some king who wanted to be able to devoric.

The oldest Christian denomination with the Papacy going all the way back to St. Peter the Apostle.

2 Pentecostal

I've read the Bible cover to cover and everything in Pentecostalism lines up correctly. A scripture Baptists often quote is when Paul said that tongues would cease someday. However, he also said that knowledge would cease in the same verse. Has knowledge ceased yet? No. I believe tongues will cease in Heaven because we'll be in our glorified bodies, so we won't need tongues. As for now, to do the things God commanded us to do, we need the gifts of the Spirit, including tongues.

Pentecostals believe in the original biblical doctrine. They didn't believe in the doctrines made after the death of apostols. This the way to heaven

I believe there is one God,eternally existing in three persons, God the father,God the son,and God the Holy spirit.
I believe the only way to be cleansed from sin is through repentance
and washed in the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

It is one of the most fun but best churches I've been to

3 Nondenominational

In a nutshell : unbiased Christianity. Non-denominational Christians are not exerting unneeded efforts to stress that they are a certain divided denominational title that separates itself from others. We belong to God and Jesus, no other title or rule of man fences in our actions or faith from separate interpretations of the Lord's word. We answer to The Good Lord, our one true original Father. We believe His son Jesus came down to our Earth to teach us the right ways to conduct our lives, and he sacrificed his pure life so that we can be saved through our faith. We believe that we do not need the blessing or approval of church leaders or members of a congregation to be worthy of God's love. God's love is our birthright. We believe that we are no holier that the next Christian that sits next to us because we are all God's children, and we are all loved by Him. A lot of confusion exists about Christianity because there are just so many separate denominations out there claiming that ...more

Nondenominational just how the Lord always wanted. Because if one church becomes corrupted it won't corrupt any more churches.

I'm all for some margin of Independent thinking

Most effective. Jesus loves us!

4 Baptist

Jesus is Jesus and all of these things revolve around Jesus

John the Baptist baptized Jesus.

The true and living Word lays here

Jesus the lover of my soul.

5 Orthodoxy

Pretty much pure/raw Christianity before Rome/Western culture changed it

Almost the same as Catholics but more traditional & raw

As a Orthodox Christian all my life I know a lot about it, First of all, we pray to the saints, frequently. The Theotokos( Mary) Jesus, God and the rest. It's really pious, but not as strict as Catholics. We consider ourselves to be the "fun uncle, who is serious sometimes"

It's literally praying to Jesus himself, not asking other Saints, with all due respect, to do our work by asking God for our needs. But we all believe in Christ our Saviour!

Older than Catholicism and kept the faith without changing its core doctrine.

6 Methodist

Best community work and welcoming programs. Practical - and not "in your face." also a reformed version Episcopal church versus all other Protestant sects which are reforms from Martin Luther and Calvin.

Methodism is one of the oldest Evangelical Mainline Protestant Church where other newer Christian groups sprung up. It has approximately 80 million members worldwide.

7 Lutheran

Absolute banger of a religion. Big up my guy Lutheran. Fr fr best religion and dat no cap! XOX

8 Evangelical

One true denomination. Repent and accept Christ.

9 Church of Christ

They preach the Gospel. They follow Christ's words on baptism. They believe you go to Paradise when you die if you have Jesus and if you don't they believe you will go elsewhere. They believe in making melody with your heart and not instruments. Very friendly people and have tons of activities for the youth. They believe the Bible is the source of your life and also they believe in reading directly from the Bible.

They emphasize following Christ through his word over following human traditions

The true church that teaches real doctrine straight out of the Bible.

Biblically based. Doctrinally sound. God's true church.

10 Anglican (Episcopalian)

We are accepting and open-minded but use traditional worship. Very raw

Simplest and most open-minded

The best and most reasonable

Broad church

The Contenders

11 Seventh Day Adventist

I am not an Adventist but am planning to be one. In the past, I had been studying with several faith groups that include almost all groups found in this site, yet I haven't found one that teaches like does the Adventist. They teach Salvation by grace through faith, the faith that submits to God through His Spirit's influence in their lives, producing in them the transformed lives seen in the way they love God and keep His commandments - not just the eight or nine commandments as most others do, but the ten commandments including the whole Seventh-day Sabbath. They believe and accept the Bible as the one and final authority of their faith and practice. They have shown deep interest in Physical, mental, social and spiritual care as evidenced in their education programs (owning and operating the largest protestant parochial school system worldwide), healthcare programs (owning the operating one of the largest hospital networks worldwide, and church preaching ministries (with works ...more

SDA-ism is not considered part of orthodox Christianity. Some individual SDA churches have adapted their message to a more evangelical flavor, but the essential body of the cake is still lacking in salvation being through Jesus Christ alone. They all promote rule-keeping (The Law) instead of the right of individual in worship of God--as God sees fit.

We obey God as He has commanded. His commandments are "LAMP" unto the world.

They go by the bible and by the bible alone, thus saith the lord

12 Church of God
13 Presbyterian

I enjoy Presbyterianism. I feel like each religion offers different viewpoints and options, but I like Presbyterianism in that it allows the freedom of thought. Not everything in the Bible should be taken literally, and it's good to look at it from different angles and formulate my own interpretation. I'm not very religious, and me and my immediate family do not attend church, but I do believe and I do feel that Presbyterianism is the way for me. It's been in our family for a while.

14 Quakers

More focus on spirituality. Christianity's version of Buddhism.

Primitive Christianity Revived.
Love God and all people.

15 Anabaptist
16 Calvinism
17 Jehovah's Witness

Not a church, not a cult nor sect, They attend the congregation. I am currently studying with them and I love the way we get to know the bible and Jehovah's will for us. We love one another. and care about bringing in as many as we can by leading them down the cramped road to everlasting life in a paradise earth.

They use the name of God( Jehovah),restore it to it's rightful place, preach the word as Jesus commanded in Mathew 28:19,20. Believe the Bible as the foremost authority, and preach the theme of the Bible,( the vindication of Jehovah's sovereignty by means of the Kingdom through Jesus Christ as King and Lord). Live as Christian's by following Christ example and obeying the the commands to love God and love your neighbors

This isn't even a Church. More like a cult

18 Salvation Army

This isn't a denomination its an organization idiots!

19 Rastafari Movement
20 Iglesia ni Cristo
21 The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

Deeds not words, live life the best way you can, and strive to get closer to God, Jesus is the primary focus, hence its in the name. Ministry to all, and understanding of all. A church were those that are call serve for the love of Jesus. Oh no clergy is paid for there efforts, a sign that they are working on faith, and obedience to the lord.

Christ says, "By this shall men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." These people are the most loving people I have ever met. True disciples of the Savior! Charity is their religion. They not only learn the commandments of God, but strive to live them as well. Faith without works is dead. The members of the Church show their faith through their works. Just take the time to get to know them. You will see what I mean.

These are people of the heart--true believers in the Savior Jesus Christ. All things come from Christ; without him their is no hope or love. He paid the price for my sins; if I believe him and trust and let him lead my life I am truly saved by him and with him.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has many humanitarian efforts. They're good people, true followers of Christ.

22 Church of England
23 The United Church
24 Amish

Having grown up in an Amish area of Ohio, I have great respect for the Amish. However, very few "become" Amish. You pretty much have to be born Amish.

25 Universalism
