Hi adnanezzi, There are several hundred different sects within Christianity, some differ only slightly while others are very different. The are all based on different interpretations of the Bible. Blessings

Hi again adnanezzi, the largest Christian denomination is The Roman Catholic Church. It has its headquarters at the Vatican in Rome, and this is where the spiritual head of the church, the Pope, lives. All Roman Catholics accept the Pope as the supreme head of the church. The Eastern orthodox Church broke with Rome in 1054, when it refused to to accept the supremacy of the Pope. In doctrine, they are similar to the Roman Catholic Church. The Anglican, or Church of England also broke away from Rome in the sixteenth century. Many of the sacraments are the same in both churches, but there are some distinct differences. While there are others who are similar, they are also smaller in number. The big differences are seen when we get to the denominations that sprang up in the seventeenth century, such as the Baptists, and the Pentecostals who came much later. Most of the new churches have almost no rituals and stress the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I'm sure there are others who could explain it in more detail, but this is a brief summary. Blessings.

What an interesting question! Actually, I have always been curious as to why the religion of Christianity is not one united religion and has any "sect" at all?? I understand that the denominations have something to do with different interpratations of the bible, but why would they (Chridstians) want to create such "sereratness" and discord amongst themselves?

There are literally hundreds of Christian sects. There may be over 300 of these. They all differ in one way or another to the rest.
