    Protestant denomination is prevalent on North America and Africa.


    Protestantism is one of the three major divisions of Christianity, along with Catholicism and Orthodoxy, the second with the largest number of adherents and the last to be created. With over 900 million adherents worldwide it comprises approximately 40% of all Christians. It originated with the Protestant Reformation, a movement against what its followers considered errors in the Catholic Church. Protestants have since rejected the Roman Catholic doctrine of papal supremacy and the sacraments, but disagree among themselves about the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. They emphasize the priesthood of all believers, justification by faith (sola fide) rather than good works, and the authority of the Bible alone (and not with sacred tradition) in faith and morals (sola scriptura). The "Five Soles" summarize the basic theological differences as opposed to the Roman Catholic Church.

    Protestantism is diverse, being more theologically and ecclesiastically divided than the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, or the Eastern Orthodoxy. Without structural unity or central human authority, Protestants led the concept of an invisible church rather than a body of clerics or institutional figures. Some denominations have a worldwide reach, while others are confined to a single country. Most Protestants are members of a handful of Protestant denominational families: Anglicans, Reformed, Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, Congregants, and United Protestants.
