Which Christian denomination do you belong to?

There are hundreds of denominations within Christianity, each with their own unique views and history. Ever since the early sixteenth century and the Reformation under Luther, western Christianity has been split by theological and political views. And since then, split after split, especially amongst Protestant groups, has created a very wide spectrum which Christians occupy.

With religion still central to world politics today, find out where you belong on that spectrum. Are you a devout Catholic, proud of Rome's history? Or maybe you are a staunch Calvinist, one of God's elect. Or you could even be a Pentecostal, putting faith and your relationship with God above all else. Or maybe you are an episcopalian, choosing the middle-way between Catholicism and Protestanism. Take the test now, and find out which of nine categories you belong to!
