Ambling aimlessly around the net, you might stumble across the following site, which tells you which Christian denomination you fit best with. My results were quite worrying......

Your Christian Traditions Selector results

(100%) 1: Anabaptist (Mennonite/Quaker etc.)

(94%) 2: Congregational/United Church of Christ

(90%) 3: Methodist/Wesleyan/Nazarene

(88%) 4: Presbyterian/Reformed

(86%) 5: Baptist (Reformed/Particular/Calvinistic)

(86%) 6: Pentecostal/Charismatic/Assemblies of God

(84%) 7: Anglican/Episcopal/Church of England

(83%) 8: Eastern Orthodox

(76%) 9: Seventh-Day Adventist

(68%) 10: Roman Catholic

(60%) 11: Church of Christ/Campbellite

(60%) 12: Lutheran

(51%) 13: Baptist (non-Calvinistic)/Plymouth Brethren/Fundamentalist
