Christianity is arranged into different groups or denominations. Denominations are arranged according to different beliefs and practices, but they all 'follow'Jesus. The idea of religion goes back to the beginning of the Christian church. The book of Acts refers to Greek Christians, Jewish Christians and Gentile Christians. We do know Jewish Christians and Gentile Christians had different beliefs in relation to circumcision.
