To be able to understand Protestant Churches in Hobe Sound, first it’s very important to know the difference between Presbyterian, Protestant, Christian, and Catholics.

However, it’s important to Keep in mind that Presbyterians, Protestants and Catholics are Christian. Presbyterians fall into the category of Protestant.
Protestant are those Christian belonging to one of the three great divisions of Christianity (the other two are the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church) Protestantism began during the Renaissance as a protest against the established (Roman Catholic) church.
Catholics and Protestants have a different view on the nature of the church. The word "catholic" means "all-embracing," and the Catholic Church sees itself as the only true church worldwide, under the leadership of the pope.

There are rather several tens of thousands of different denominations around the world. Officially, all these many churches are considered equal.
