Respect Your Elders

There are a number of Presbyterian churches around the world, and they share one key feature - they are governed by presbyters, or elders, who may be either ministers or lay people. This kind of organization was based on the ideas of reformer John Calvin. Worship is simple and centres on preaching and -as shown in this 19th-century painting - study of the scriptures.

The Salvation Army is organized along military lines. It is led by a "general", other church leaders are known as "officers", and members, or "soldiers", wear a distinctive uniform. Those who enroll sign a declaration of faith known as the "Articles of War". All members are entitled to bear the organization's red shield.
