Other Christian Groups
The varieties of Christian groups in the United States seems virtually endless, especially so when one considers the large numbers of stand-alone, unaffiliated churches. For convenience sake and classification purposes, the label “Protestant” is sometimes used to refer to Christian groups who may not strictly quality as Protestants, but who nevertheless shun Catholic (and Eastern Orthodox) ritual, dogma and practices. It is also noteworthy that most of these groups had Protestant founders or were the result of Protestant activity in Great Britain and the United States. Socially and culturally, they function as part of the Protestant world.

The sections that follow cover the largest and most influential of these groups.
