Transcript: 1517 was the year Protestantism was founded. Protestants, unlike Catholics believe that the bible is the only declaration needed to live out the religion. It is named 'sola scriptura'. This denomination was founded in 1901. The First Pentecostal's beliefs that set them apart are their belief that baptism should not take place at a young age as they don;t understand the symbolism or are yet to feel a connection with God. Lutheranism ELEMENTS Mormon Church Methodist BRAINSTORM The Roman Catholic Church states they were created in 30 AD and that its origins are the birth, death and resurrection of Christ. They claim to be first church, the one Jesus died for. The basic beliefs of Roman catholicism is the bible is the error free word of god, baptism is necessary for salvation, the ten commandments, the holy trinity. They have full belief in the pope and have a strong sense of spiritual authority. Write the primary idea of the mind map in the center. Use different color notes to differentiate between topics. Use lines and arrows to create branches that connect ideas to each other. Lutheranism was established in the 1500's. Lutherans belief in the elect (God chooses his followers, people cannot choose God), salvation cannot be earned but believers should strive for good nonetheless, paradoxes, and freedom within services as there is no set structure. 1863 marks the year the Seventh Day Adventist church was founded. It is a very strict faith with it's followers abstaining from alcohol, cigarettes, and recommending a vegetarian diet. Missionary work is very important with Seventh Day Adventist faith. This faith also believes in a literal creation story, the remnant, the great controversy, the heavenly sanctuary and the sabbath. The first Anglican church was established in 1867 in England UK. Anglicanism allows more significant freedom and diversity within scripture. For example, priests are allowed to be women, whereas in other denominations this is not accepted The Mormon church began in 1830 New York. The beliefs that separate Mormon faith from other denominations are polygamy, continuing revelation and plural heavens. The Different Denominations Christian Denominations The eastern orthodox/greek orthodox was created in 1054 after the schism between western and eastern Catholics. This religion draws on Greek, Middle-Eastern, Russian and Slav culture. Other differences are veneration of saints, greater independence/less concept on spiritual authority, less fixation on the bleeding Christ on cross and different celebration of Easter. Seventh Day Adventist copy and paste as needed and take advantage of an infinite canvas! The Methodist church was founded in 1968. What sets Methodists apart is their strive for logic and reasoning within scripture, the observance of the season of Kingdom tide, inclusiveness (in reference to Christ's death being for all humanity), and music. First Pentecostal Church The jehovah's witness church was founded among the 1870's. Their unique beliefs include theocracy, their name for God, armageddon, strong belief in hell, no holiday celebration and prohibition of blood transfusion. Greek Orthodox Protestantism Anglicanism Catholicism Jehovah's Witness

Christian Denominations

Transcript: Most churches within the Latter Day Saint Movement (including The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is the largest group), do not characterize themselves as Protestant. The movement's origination during the Second Great Awakening parallels the founding of numerous other indigenous American religions, especially in the Burned-over district of western New York state, and in the western territories of the United States, including the Adventist movement, Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Science, and the Restoration Movement. Each of these groups, founded within fifty years of one another, originally claimed to be an unprecedented, late restoration of the primitive Christian church. Some denominations which arose alongside the Western Christian tradition consider themselves Christian, but neither Roman Catholic nor wholly Protestant, such as Quakerism which began as an evangelical Christian movement in 17th century England. They were known in America for helping with the Underground Railroad and, like the Mennonites, Quakers traditionally refrain from participation in war. Other churches, such as Churches of Christ or the Plymouth Brethren reject formal ties with other churches within the movement. Christians With Jewish Roots Since the reforms surrounding Vatican II, the Catholic Church has referred to Protestant communities as "denominations", while reserving the term "church" for apostolic churches, including the Eastern Orthodox. There are however some non-denominational Christians who do not follow any particular branch. Western Churches There are also the Eastern Catholic Churches, which are counterparts of the various Churches mentioned earlier, in that they preserve the same theological and liturgical traditions as they do. But they differ from their Orthodox mother Churches in that they recognize the Bishop of Rome as the universal head of the Church. Though adherents of Eastern Catholicism are fully part of the Catholic communion, most do not to use the term "Roman Catholic" to describe themselves, associating that name instead with members of the Latin Church. Rather, they prefer to use the name of whichever Church they belong to—Ukrainian Catholic, Coptic Catholic, Chaldean Catholic, and so on. Eastern Churches Christians have various doctrines about the Church, the body of faithful that they believe was established by Jesus Christ, and how the divine church corresponds to Christian denominations. Both the Catholics and the Eastern Orthodox consider each of themselves solely to faithfully represent the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church to the exclusion of the other. Protestants separated from the Catholic Church because of theologies and practices that they considered to be in violation of their interpretation. Generally, members of the various denominations acknowledge each other as Christians, at least to the extent that they have mutually recognized baptisms and acknowledge historically orthodox views including the Divinity of Jesus and doctrines of sin and salvation, even though doctrinal obstacles hinder full communion between churches. The Oriental Orthodox church is composed of Eastern Christian churches which recognize only the first three ecumenical councils—the First Council of Nicaea, the First Council of Constantinople and the First Council of Ephesus. They rejected the dogmatic definitions of the Council of Chalcedon held in AD 451 in Chalcedon. These churches are in full communion with each other but not with the Eastern Orthodox churches. Slow dialogue towards restoring communion began in the mid-20th century. The Oriental Orthodox communion comprises six churches: Coptic Orthodox, Ethiopian Orthodox, Eritrean Orthodox, Syriac Orthodox, Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church (Indian Orthodox Church) and Armenian Apostolic Churches. Christian Denominations The Latin portion of the Catholic Church, along with Anglicanism and Protestantism, comprise the three major divisions of Christianity in the Western world. The Baptist, Methodist, and Lutheran churches are generally considered to be Protestant denominations. Anglicanism was generally classified as Protestant, but since the Oxford Movement of the 19th century, led by John Henry Newman, Anglican writers emphasize a more catholic understanding of the church and characterize it as both Protestant and Catholic. The American province of the Anglican Communion, the Episcopal Church USA, describes itself as modern. A case is sometimes also made to regard Lutheranism in a similar way, considering the catholic character of its foundational documents and its existence prior to the Anglican, Anabaptist, and Reformed churches, from which nearly all other Protestant denominations derive. A Christian denomination is an identifiable religious body under a common name, structure, and doctrine within Christianity. In the Orthodox tradition, churches are divided often along ethnic and linguistic lines, into separate churches and
