List of Christian denominations

List of Christian denominations ordered by historical and doctrinal relationships. (See also: Christianity; ).

It should be noted that some denominations are large (eg. Roman Catholic, Lutherans, Anglicans or Baptists) while others are just a few small churches.

It should also be noted that modern movements such as Fundamentalist Christianity, Pietism, Evangelicalism, Pentecostalism and the Holiness movement can either divide to make new denominations or blur denominational lines to bring groups together.
