Which Denomination Am I?

Growing up, I always described myself as a bit of a theological/denominational "mutt." I was raised in Charismatic and Assemblies of God churches when I was young, attended a Baptist church throughout middle and high school, was part of a non-denominational Charismatic church plant in late high school, bounced around way too much in college (charismatic Baptist, Vineyard, Presbyterian, non-denominational, Baptist mega-church, to name a few of the places I landed!), attended a Methodist church while working on my master's, and now am part of a Sovereign Grace church (essentially, Reformed Charismatic). So I was interested to take this quiz  to determine my denominational leanings. The results:

(100%) 1: Baptist (Reformed/Particular/Calvinistic)   
(83%) 2: Presbyterian/Reformed    
(82%) 3: Congregational/United Church of Christ    
(60%) 4: Anglican/Episcopal/Church of England    
(60%) 5: Baptist (non-Calvinistic)/Plymouth 
(54%) 6: Eastern Orthodox   
(51%) 7: Methodist/Wesleyan/Nazarene   
(51%) 8: Lutheran   
(51%) 9: Seventh-Day Adventist   
(50%) 10: Pentecostal/Charismatic/Assemblies of God   
(47%) 11: Church of Christ/Campbellite  
(36%) 12: Anabaptist (Mennonite/Quaker etc.)    
(31%) 13: Roman Catholic

While I wasn't surprised to be in the neighborhood of "Reformed Baptist," I was surprised to be pegged at 100%! I was also surprised to see "Pentecostal/Charismatic/Assemblies of God" so far down the list, as these are my roots, and still a significant influence in my life.

What about you? Where do you land? Take the quiz and let me know!
