There is a new trend developing today in the worldwide Church. Non-denominational churches are cropping up everywhere. Some are even experiencing an increase in membership, while others struggle each day to maintain their traditional faith groups. This article will briefly discuss what non-denominational church looks like, what types of people they attract, and what type of activities they have.
A non-denominational church is usually made up of two thousand or more members who may not have creeds. They do not participate in formal church meetings, but they do share beliefs, prayers, and community. A non-denominational church differs from other Christian sects in that it has no official communion or clergy, and there are no biblical texts that they follow. Most, if not all, of them are also Unitarian in nature. This is why many of these churches choose to separate themselves from mainstream Christian denominations such as the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church.
A non-denominational church can be thought of as a slightly deviant form of the Roman Catholic Church. For instance, the Catholic church has officially stated that men and women are to take their vows in the form of a vow of obedience and belief. In contrast, the Unitarian church does not have an official set of dogma, and there are no official church meetings that they regularly attend. However, they still stick to basic Catholic rites such as performing mass and having weekly church events.
As for the kinds of people who join non-denominational churches, they tend to be older, educated, and atheistic. Their main religion is not the Christian religion at all. They may be agnostics with agnosticism towards religion in general. This is not to say that there are not large numbers of people in these groups. It simply highlights the fact that these are the types of people most likely to become regular church goers.
The differences between these two religions are many. While the Catholic Church makes every effort to teach its followers what the bible says, it also lays emphasis on following the teachings of the Holy Spirit as revealed through the written word of God. Non-denominational churches, by contrast, generally teach their members to read the Bible with an open mind to the word of God as expressed in the Bible. They also encourage members to pursue personal growth through prayer, meditation, and other forms of spirituality.
