This article gives information about the relative size of denominations, based mainly on claims by the churches themselves.

Christian denominational families[change | change source]

Christianity - 2.42 billion[change | change source]

Eastern Catholic Churches - 16.3 million[4]

Protestantism - 900 million[change | change source]

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

Protestantism is the second largest major group of Christians after the Catholic Church by number of followers. Estimates vary considerably, from 400 million up to more than a billion.[10][11][12][13][14][15][16] One of the reasons is the lack of a common agreement among scholars about which denominations constitute Protestantism. For instance, most of the sources but not all of them include Anglicanism as part of Protestantism (see below). Moreover, Protestant denominations do not form a single communion, comparable to those of the Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodoxy. Nevertheless, 900 million is the most accepted figure among various authors and scholars, and thus is used in this article. Note that 900 million figure also includes Anglicanism, as well as Anabaptists, Baptists and multiple other groups which have in their scope some denominations that might disavow a common "Protestant" designation, and would rather prefer to be called, simply, "Christian".

Historical Protestantism (roots before 1800) - 300-400 million[11]
Modern Protestantism (roots post 1800) - 400-500 million

Anglicanism - 85 million[change | change source]

Anglicanism is considered a part of Protestantism in most sources, although there are some that disagree and describe it as a "Christian branch in its own right". Therefore, it is included as a subpage here to avoid causing a numerical confusion among readers of this article.

Continuing Anglican movement and independent churches - 0.6 million

Eastern Orthodox Church - 270 million[change | change source]

A map of Eastern Orthodoxy by population percentage.

The most common estimate of the number of Eastern Orthodox Christians worldwide is 225–300 million, forming a single communion, making it the second largest, single Christian denomination behind the Catholic Church.[190] These are the adherents of the recognized Orthodox jurisdictions (autocephalous and autonomous churches) that are in full communion with each other. In addition, there are some Orthodox splinter groups and non-universally recognized churches.

Autocephalous churches - 224 million
Autonomous churches - 13 million
Non-universally recognized churches - 27 million
Other separated Orthodox groups - 6 million
