Classifying Christian faith groups and belief systems:

Today, there are many ways of classifying the over 1,500 faith groups in North America that consider themselves to be Christian. One can sort them:

bulletInto three or four meta-groups (e.g. Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, and perhaps Anglican),
bulletBy "wing" (e.g. conservative, mainline, and liberal),
bulletBy religious family, (Baptist, Lutheran, Pentecostal, etc.)
bulletBy denomination (From the Amish to The Way), and
 
bulletBy theological belief system (Calvinism, Arminianism, etc.; They often cut across denominational boundaries.) See below.
