  • Nondenominational because denominations are separated by sins that people believe in. I don't believe in sin and don't think God's people should worship in division. Alot of people that say we have different beliefs and thats ok but the Bible said that God is not an God of confusion mans interpretations is what has divided God's people. I just believe in the Bible.
  • Just plain Christian now (non-denominational), but I was born and raised Roman Catholic.
  • Methodist, its how i was raised and the only thing that makes sense to me as of now,i like knowing that the advent reath will be there come Christmas. i know im not really being judged by my congregation. i like tradition
  • I was raised cathoilic,but now im just here.lol
  • I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, otherwise known as Mormons. Yes, I was raised in it, so one might say that is why I am a member; however, more than 10 years ago I chose to find out for myself, so I prayed about, read about it and other religions, learned as much as I could and felt the answer to be that I was doing what was right.
  • I am a member of an Assemblies of God congregation. I go there because that is where God planted me and because I don't disagree with any moral doctrins of that church.
  • Roman Catholic, I was born and brought up into the church. There are things i do not agree with that are church law, but it is still where I feel safe and comfortable.
  • Roman Catholic. I was born into it and I really don't feel like converting into anything else. It doesn't really matter to me who has what religion since, by the end of the day your just a guy who has a God to believe in.
  • I was raised a Mormon but then God showed up. Four years ago I entered into a relationship with Him becoming a Christian and with a new faith which conflicted with my prior beliefs and practices I requested a release from my Bishopric responsibilities and left Mormonism altogether. I now attend a Baptist church because that was where God led me to worship Him at. I consider myself first a Christian and the place where I worship God secondary to my faith experience.
  • Catholic who is learning. Was previously in various other Protestant groups and was very anti-Catholic. I've come to realize that everything that I was previously taught about Catholicism were misconceptions or just plain wrong. But I also appreciate and respect other non-Catholic Christian beliefs.
  • I was raised in, and married in, the Presbyterian Church. Then I tried Episcopal for a while... then Methodist... Finally realized, I don't feel like I "fit in" with any of them. I no longer call myself a Christian.
  • I am of no denomination. There are far to many choices, none of which really appeal to me.
  • Roman Catholic. Raised by a staunch Catholic family and go to mass every now and then (maybe three times a year) I could try to become more Catholic than I am, but there is nothing in this world that I believe in 100%. I wish there were.
  • I don't consider myself a very religous person, but I do have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In fact I go to a non-denomination church if I can find one, only because I get tired of legalism. Also that I am more sure in a way that I am following God rather then the church, a big difference these days.
  • Well, when I was a churchy man I was Anglican. Was raised in an Anglican church, wandered through a few more pentecostal denominations and back to an anglican church before giving the game away entirely. Quite a range of 'atmospheres' in the anglican church - from high-church incense and robes through to happy-clappy, priests-in-hawaiian-shirts stuff.
  • I was raised an anglican, married an anglican had my sons christened anglican, but have since had a life revelation that religion is all wrong, its biast, vengeful, human constructed, works on fear, and so on. No, I dont believe any more, and feel a huge weight lifted from my soul!! I now feel the light :)
  • M.B. Menonite Brethren.
  • A true christian is a true follower of christ jesus, after all thats what the word christian means "A Follower of Christ" A person who is not afraid to be unpopular in the face of oposition, one who stands up and refuses to go along with tradition and the degrading moral breakdown of this world, one who seeks Gods approval continually and not mans, one who sticks to the original bible teachings a footstep follower of Christ, even when mankind decides to go the other way. There is only 1 denomination of christian A True Christian, if you say you are a true christian, measure yourself up against the Bibles definition and Jesus example, then you will truly know if you are a true christian, a christian if they find out they don't measure up will willingly change, no matter how hard, they will leave behind tradition and stick with bible teachings as jesus did.
  • I was raised anglican, but have worshipped Baptist and Pentecostal. Now my husband is working for Wesley Mission (Uniting Church Aust). The congregation we are in is charismatic evangelical.I am fairly lay back as to denominational differences. I can attend many different ones. there are none I can think of in mainline protestant christianity that I couldn't attend. Although I might have preferences of style, I can put them aside to worship with others.
  • Lutheran - ELCA - because I tend to agree with the core denominational beliefs and I also think God uses women and would invite everybody to His table. I am a Christian way before I am a Lutheran, though. I am just very Lutheran in many traditions because I like the "high church" worship and find it so rich and fulfilling.
  • I was baptised an anglican raised one, but my aallegiance is first of all to Christ. My denomination is just a useful place to be, where I can be taught and where I can help others in their growth. Over the years, I have attended a baptist church and am now, with my husband, who is a pastor, in Wesley International Church sydney. I have nothing against denominations, as long as they are the servants and not the masters of the christian.
  • Born Again baptized in the Holy Ghost Christian. That is where God lead me. I have been blessed to know God my whole life, there has never been a time when I didn't know Him. I went to Catholic school, but couldn't stay. My sister wanted to go to public school so I had to too.
  • I was raised an agnostic. By the love and grace of God I became a christian. I am now an ELCA Lutheran a very very conservative (For the church), very very devout ELCA Lutheran. I love my church family. In church everything just feels right even when it isn't always true.
  • Sorry I don't know why this answer was posted here; it was meant to comment on a comment to my answer. It won't happen again.
  • Baptist. After reading the Bible and studying on it, Independent and fundamental Baptist churches are the closest thing to the true New Testament church I can find. I love that Bible preachin, and for sinners reachin.
  • Roman Catholic. I've investigated the other christian denominations and have distanced myself in years past from the religion of my youth. The turning point for me was being in women's group from another denomination and listening to the Catholic haters. I found it to be discrimminatory when I heard someone professing to be Christian but being hateful in speech. It almost felt like being the only black person at a KKK rally. I could really go on, but I investigated and really came to believe that I am comfortable being a Catholic Christian and the practices are all biblically based. There is a lot of fullfilment, too, receiving communion and witnessing the breaking of bread. I don't belief that it's a perfect church, because if you think about it, it's a place of recovery for sinners.
  • I am a Baptist because I believe it closest to Bible truth and doctrine.
  • I am a Lutheran because my parents brought me up in that church. If I were to change denominations I would likely become a Catholic or Anglican.
  • I am a non-denominational Christian. I have been to C.O.G.I.C, Assembly Of God, Baptist, AME, Methodist, churches. I have sang at all of them, and have went to conferences. Each on these churches believes in the Lord, and in His word. They at times do things a little differently in the church services. I don't have a problem with that as long as they are serving the same Lord as me. I attend a non-denominational/Apostalic church right now, and love it.
  • I am a Baptist, (fundamental, right now, but I have been a missionary and southern Baptist). Most Baptist's believe essentially the same way. I settled on Baptist after searching just about every denomination known to man. I really love the old time fire and brimstone preaching, but you just can't hardly find it anymore. But, what we believe in our heart is more important than denominations. I have worshipped with many different denominations, as long as their beliefs are similar to mine.
  • I was raised Southern Baptist, but I am now worshipping outside the church my own way with my own system. I believe every religion has a piece of the mystery figured out. Together they are right, alone, they are lacking.
  • Arianist, I think. I am against anathema.
  • I am merely a follower of Jesus Christ, because it's all that matters.
  • I am the lowest denomination.
  • I have no religion because I am an atheist since I lack the belief in any God or any supernatural being. However, I am interested in religion and in finding out the reason why people have faith.
  • Pentacostal Because I saw no power in other religions...
  • I wasn't brought up in a home where religion was talked about. I never even really knew who Jesus was untill about three years ago. That was when I moved out on my own to go to college. I started attending a couple non-denominational churches with some friends I made and just about a year ago accepted Jesus Christ as my lord and savior. I realized that this life was too hard to get though on my own, and that I'd always believed that there was a God. I discovered that in order to be the best person I could be that I needed to persuit God, and follow his son wherever he wants to take me. Like the saying goes "he died for me, why not live for him." I encourage anyone who is curious about Jesus, God and the christian faith to find someone who would be willing to take you to church with them. Even if you don't believe it or are of a different faith. Who Jesus is, what he teaches and what he went through so that we could have eternal life is a beautiful thing. If nothing else you'll hear some great stories and hopefully find some awesome friends.
  • For some odd reason I can't add this comment to a conversation chain under my previous answer. I'll have to post it as an all new answer... Engeltje you ask good well thought out questions. I don't believe in evolution and so to your question about God "did he evolve also" I would say no, none of us have evolved. God has always existed. He is without beginning of days nor end of years. Many who are reluctant today to attribute creation to God allow for an intelligent designer understanding that nothing comes of nothing and so the environment for life to even exist had to come from something. I hold that the "intelligent designer" is God. If you believe in evolution take the process to an atomic level and tell me where the atoms came from. Did they evolve also and from what? Continue that process and either you'll get a headache, give up, or realize that something began the process. The Bible teaches that as we observe nature we'll observe the workings of God. He is the uncaused cause of all that is.
  • Catholic,cause my parents are too.
  • No Demonination, Just here to build a relationship with God. I am into Gods' rules not mans rules.
  • I am not a denomination. I'm just someone that believes in God my father in Heaven. You just have to believe,God doesn't expect you to join a club.
  • Not part of a denomination. I am a member of the Church of Christ, and we do not consider ourselves a denomination yet the Church that Christ founded.
  • I started out as an Irish Catholic, but I'm currently an atheist, and have been since I was 12.
  • I was raised Catholic - that's what my beliefs are. That's what I still am and always will be. That being said, I also don't believe that Catholicism is the only right religion. Overall, we pray to the same God. There are some Catholic views that I don't agree with. I think the goal is basically the same - that there is a higher power and that we all strive to be our best to enter Heaven's gates. Some may have different names for God, Heaven, etc... but to me it's basically all the same goal & purpose.
  • Unity (which isn't the same as Unitarianism). Or, which is almost the same thing, Religious Science,(not the same as Scientology), but our kids liked our Unity church's kids program a lot better, so we're back going back there now after a few months at an RS church. It aligns with my beliefs, and helps bring me to the still place within. It teaches you how to live your life positively. It's not a doctrinal church; feel free to call me a heathen. It's sometimes tarred with the "new age" epithet, but that's a gross oversimplification. (They interpret Jesus' teachings metaphorically and metaphysically. Eg, Jesus wasn't the one and only Son Of God; he was an example of what any of us could be.) I was casually raised Catholic, but it just did absolutely nothing for me, either mentally, spiritually, symbolically, ceremonially, or whateverly.
  • None - I am a follower of Jesus. Denominations always have their faults, but Jesus is perfect, and the bible is perfect.
  • At the moment I am a member of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. I grew up in the Presbyterian Church in America. I'd consider being a member at any reformed congregation which happened to be convenient, including baptist ones, so long as they did not mind if I had my children baptized elsewhere as infants! Why? Because reformed Christianity makes sense, it is well-thought-out, it rings of truth, and is closest to what I believe.
  • The Church of Islamic Moustached Brothers.
  • For more information on the Church of Christ http://www.christiancourier.com/ http://preachersfiles.com/ we are probably best known for not using instruments in our worship services.
  • Catholicism because that's how we were raised in my family. Though as an adult now, I don't necessarily follow it's teachings. I guess I'm either non practicing Catholic or a non denominational Christian. Whatever the right term is.
  • I do not belong to a denomination. I simply read the Bible and take each word in as it is. I follow Jesus's example as well as a sinful human can. It is through Jesus we are saved, not a denomination.
  • I am a Christian and not a member of any religious order ordained by man.
  • Catholic, born and raised. Rasining my kids that way too. I ventured out for a bit... but I came back. I think there are a lot og great religios out there and they are there b/c everyone needs something different. I don't believe in a "one true religion". Faith is faith. I don't believe everything the Catholic church says and does, but I enjoy the tradtionalness, the fact that my family are all Catholic, and their religious ed program.
  • I'm not xtian because I don't buy fairy tales.
  • I was raised a Protestant—Dutch Reformed, specifically—but as I teenager I generally stopped going to church because it didn’t seem quite right to me. I drifted agnostically for a while, attending various churches whenever invited, but it wasn’t until I was sixteen that I turned my life over to the Lord and joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. (I’d go into the circumstances surrounding this experience, but it would take up more than I’m sure anyone cares to read.) ;-) Why am I still a member of the Church of Jesus Christ? Because in seventeen years of intense prayer and study—particularly inasmuch as I’ve had to defend my religion against those that seek to discredit or even destroy it—I’ve never found a single reason to doubt the revelations I received as a sixteen-year-old boy. If you care to learn more about the Church, check out http://www.mormon.org . There’s a live chat feature and everything! :-) (And if you don’t, God bless you anyway!) :-)
  • I've always thought of myself as at least a "sawbuck" = $10.00 ;-)
