Christian Denominations

The World Christian Database represents over 9,000 Christian denominations throughout the world. The data regarding denominations is reconciled against people groups and country of residence. Because of this, complex reports can be generated about people groups or countries based on hundreds of possible variables.

Major traditions represented:

  • Anglicans
  • Catholics
  • Independents
  • Marginals
  • Orthodox
  • Protestants
  • Charismatics
  • Neocharismatics
  • Pentecostals

Each denomination is also coded by their membership of Christian World Communions and Christian councils at world, regional and national levels.
