Why So Many Protestant Denominations?
led by Bill Stevenson
If you went to a small town in the U.S. on a Sunday, you would have a vast array of different Protestant denominations to choose from; Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Episcopalian, Brethren, United Church of Christ, Southern Baptist, Assembly of God, Society of Friends, Seventh Day Adventists, Moravian, Mennonites, etc etc.

How did this all come about? Are the differences mainly in fundamental theology or are there other forces at work?

This 2-week series will take a broad look at the Protestant movements in Europe and the U.S.

Oct. 27 - Europe - The Reformation: Personalities and Nationalities
Nov. 3 - America - Land of the Free: Awakenings and Visions
