List of Christian
Denominations by
Number of Members

List of Christian Denominations by Number of
Members
This is a list of Christian denominations by number of members. It is
inevitably partial and generally based on claims by the denominations
themselves. The numbers should therefore be considered approximate and
ongoing work-in-progress.
The list includes the Catholic Church, all the Eastern Catholic
Churches affiliated to the Catholic Church and its relevantbreakaway
groups; all the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Churches with
some recognition and their spin-offs; theProtestant denominations and the
provinces of the Anglican Communion with at least 0.2 million members; all
the other Christian branches with a distinct theological tradition.

Protestantism - 800 million

A map of Protestantism (including Anglicanism) by population percentage.

Estimates of the total number of Protestants are very uncertain, partly
because of the difficulty in determining which denominations should be
placed in the category. It seems however clear that Protestantism is the
second largest major group of Christians after Catholicism by number of
followers. Often that number is put at 800 million. Some sources, which put
the number at 800 million, include also Anglicanism (see below) within
Protestantism. However, Protestant denominations in the world differ vastly
to slightly theologically and do not form a single communion.

Chinese-originated and Chinese Independent Churches – 10 million
Groups listed have origins in the Lord's Recovery movement associated
with Watchman Nee and Witness Lee. The Shouters are an offshoot of the Local
Churches considered a dangerous sect by the Chinese government; due to the
extremely decentralized nature of both groups, there is controversy over
which house churches should be actually considered part of each. Eastern
Lightning, which is in turn an offshoot of The Shouters, is very hierarchical (in
contrast to its predecessors) and teaches that Christ has already returned as a
woman named Lightning Deng.
