It can be so confusing, trying to figure out which of the 437 Christian denominations you want to join. In fact, scientists believe there are almost as many denominations as there are genders. That's a lot of different ways to do church!

Luckily, we're here to help you sort through them all. Here are the pros and cons of each of the major Christian denominations:

Con: You are not allowed to move a single muscle while rejoicing in God's glory
