  Religious denomination - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Denominations usually have a significant degree of authority over their member congregations, although the term is also used to describe religious groups when the congregations have authority over the "denomination", such as the numerous Baptist associations or the Unitarian Universalist Association.
Denominations often form slowly over time for many reasons; due to historical accidents of geography, culture, and influence between different groups, members of a given religion slowly begin to diverge in their views.
In other cases, denominations form very rapidly, either as a result from a split or schism in an existing denomination, or as people from many different denominations share an experience of spiritual revival or spiritual awakening, and choose to form a new denomination based on that new experience or understanding.

 Religioscope - > American Protestant Pastors and the positions of their denominations
Pastors who differ with their denomination theologically tend to be split almost evenly between those who feel the denomination is too liberal and those who believe it is too conservative.
Interestingly, while mainline denominations tend to be more theologically liberal and evangelical denominations tend to be more theologically conservative, how pastors from each group perceive the denominations they're in does not differ much between the two groups.
And while we can't say that every denomination is a good theological match with the ministers serving in that denomination, when viewed in the big picture, it's hard to see where a change could improve things.

 ARE WE A DENOMINATION
In the religious world, "denomination" refers to a body of believers in Christ who consider their church to be only one group among many groups of the saved.

 The Denomination Called Catholic
At first the denomination begins a relative decline, shrinking as a percentage of the population.
A vivid illustration is the transformation of the Methodists from sect to denomination.
America’s higher social classes are generally "moderate" in religious style, not "enthusiastic." The moderate denominations, considering zeal a sign of social vulgarity, tend not to spread the faith through missionary activity; they will not even make hearty efforts to instill the faith in their own children.

 Church Business - Study Shows Four Out of 10 Protestant Ministers Not on the Same Page as Their Denominations ...
Those who do not feel their theology matches up with the official positions of their denomination are divided over whether the denomination is too conservative or too liberal. Sixteen percent say their denomination is a little more liberal theologically than they are, and 7% call it much more liberal.
Because the denominational world is so fragmented, it is not possible to analyze how ministers from every individual denomination answered these questions. A denomination with 5,000 churches nationwide represents a tiny fragment of all Protestant churches, and therefore also represents just a few respondents in this study.
Of these four denominational groups, Methodist ministers are least likely to think along the same lines as their denomination. Just 33% feel their own theological positions are pretty much in line with the official positions of their denomination. Twenty-five percent say they are more theologically liberal than their denomination while 42% say they are more theologically conservative.

 PCUSA bodies adopt consensus model that denomination opposes - 10/02/03
A decision process called "consensus," which runs at cross purposes with the denomination's parliamentary policy, is now being promoted and utilized by some of the denomination's decision-making bodies in the Presbyterian Church (USA).
The 213th General Assembly decreed that the task force provide the denomination discernment on four steamy issues: Christology, the authority and interpretation of Scripture, the unending debate over whether to ordain practicing homosexuals and how decision-making power is divvied up in the PCUSA.
In the case of the General Assembly Council, the outline for the consensus model was provided by a member of the denomination's staff – Gradye Parsons, who has served as parliamentarian of the General Assembly when Stated Clerk Clifton Kirkpatrick was busy with other matters.
