  • What does Protestant mean?

A simplified definition of Protestant is—a member or follower of any of several denominations or nondenominational churches not adherent to the Catholic or Orthodox Church.  Protestant Christians typically affirm the Reformation doctrines of justification by faith and not through works, the priesthood of all believers, and the primacy of the Bible as the ultimate source in matters of faith and order. Some of the Protestant denominations represented at Wesleyan as identified by students include Baptist, Church of Christ, Congregational, Episcopalian, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Nondenominational.
