History. Anglicans derive their theology and worship practices from the Church of England, which split away from the Roman Catholic Church in 1533 by order of Henry VIII, king of England. Anglicans retained Catholic church structure (replacing the Pope with the King) and many other aspects of Catholic worship, discarding celibacy for the clergy, veneration of relics, Mariolatry and a few others.

Pentecostals derive from the loosely organized Anabaptist movement which arose at the same time as most Protestant movements. Their church organization tends to be congregational (having no formal connection between congregations), and worship focuses on ecstatic experiences such as are reported to have occured at Pentecost.
