InterFaith Calendar: Protestant Christianity

Protestants are those Christian denominations whose roots are in the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century.

Key Protestant beliefs emphasize the authority of scripture, the sovereignty of God, the essential element of personal faith for salvation, and the freedom of individual conscience. The Bible is central to the formation of Protestant faith and life. The writings of early church fathers and other theologians are an important part of Protestant thought and practice.
