This category is for articles regarding those religious groups—not individual persons—which are not Orthodox Christian. (See Category:Heresies for ancient and modern heresies from Church history.)

From the OrthodoxWiki:Style Manual: "Articles on Non-Orthodox Christian religious groups, while necessarily including some general description of those groups, should have as their primary content the relationship and history of that group in relation to the Orthodox Church." Among other things, this could include:

Note: Many jurisdictions make a canonical distinction (esp. with regard to baptismal practice) between those groups which acknowledge the authority of Holy Scripture and hold to an essentially Orthodox Christology (generally speaking this would include Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Methodists, free-church Evangelicals, and Charismatics) and those groups which have more in common with ancient heresies than traditional Christianity (Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, etc.).
