Nondenominational

A non-denominational person or organization is not restricted to any particular or specific religious denomination.

Overview

The term has been used in the context of various faiths including Jainism,[1] Bahá'í Faith,[2] Zoroastrianism,[3] Unitarian Universalism,[4] Neo-Paganism,[5] Christianity,[6] Islam,[7] Judaism,[8] Hinduism,[9] Buddhism[10] and Wicca.[11] It stands in contrast with a religious denomination. Religionists of a non-denominational persuasion tend to be more open-minded in their views on various religious matters and rulings. Some converts towards non-denominational strains of thought have been influenced by disputes over traditional teachings in the previous institutions they attended.[12] Nondenominationalism has also been used as a tool for introducing neutrality into a public square when the local populace are derived from a wide-ranging set of religious beliefs.[13]
