Can you folks explain to me what exactly does "non-denominational" mean in Christian sects? I'm also curious what "reform," "evangelical," and "fundamentalist," mean. I've always been extremely vague what people have meant by these terms; I gather over time that I've misunderstood the meanings. The dictionary doesn't really quite clear it up for me.

I forgot to add: "born again." This one puzzles me.

Thanks again, $IQ
Also curious what the difference is between Baptists, Episcopaleans, Lutherans, Methodists, etc., but imagines that will open a much wider and longer debate and I still don't really know what the core difference is between a Catholic and a "Christian" (Protestant) is, other than the schism in England some 500 years ago.
