Ever since its inception, the church has undergone a lot of changes. The Christian church now enjoys various denominations. The denominations have led to an increase in the number of Christian churches worldwide. Now many Christians recognize themselves with different denominations.
Each denomination has its way of carrying out its business. But what has caused these differences. One is the church government, which is responsible for shaping the word of God. It helps determine what is true theology and how that information needs to be passed across to Christian faithfuls. Areas such as theology, biblical interpretation, worship, ordinance, fellowship, and governance are areas whereby someone needs to take authority, and different protestants have had different views about that.
You will find the Anglicans have invested the authority in bishops. They are the ones who have to take authority on ordinance and fellowship. The Christians in the Anglican church will wait for guidance and direction from the Bishops. Other Christian denominations believe that the authority lies in the hands of the congregation. The congregation is the one that shapes the word of God. All these differences in church denominations show how people have embraced diversity on the religious front. It is a liberal world, and anyone has the choice to join the church they deem fit for themselves. They have to assess the values that the church has to offer.
