Finding religion in America is no hard feat. Throughout the country's inception, religious movements have found a home, and more, throughout the United States. Founded on religious freedom, early settlers would venture to America to avoid persecution in their home countries. The sudden allowance of religious practices considered taboo elsewhere promoted a creative and innovative view of religion, and with Christianity being the primary religion of American immigrants, many denominations and factions were formed throughout the country's creation.
Christian beliefs and scripture were often within a structure of a larger, more powerful entity like the Catholic Church. Some of the strict guidelines and power structures in place became somewhat oppressive for believers in Jesus Christ, and the newfound religious freedom in America gave way to forms of Christianity that centered around the individual and their community. Just like the spread of Lutheran teachings, Protestant Reformation revitalized belief in Jesus Christ across America and led to the inception of various chapters of Christianity that would become more popular in America than ever imagined.
Baptism holds a special place in American religions as an incredibly successful movement that impacts culture in the United States to this day. Baptist Churches can be found across the country, and Baptist beliefs can be traced throughout various religious movements in American history. In today's United States, Baptists make up the third-largest religion in the country and Baptist tradition is practiced worldwide.
