I am considered protestant.
I am the chief elder/bishop of my local church. It is an independent non-denominational church. We consider ourselves a Bible church open to all Christians. As a church we are essentially an independent evangelical "bapticostal" church.
For an idea of our core beliefs ...
• We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
• We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
• We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
• We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, faith, repentance, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are absolutely essential.
• We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose enabling and indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a godly life, to be an effective witness, and to work the supernatural works of Christ.
• We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation and everlasting punishment.
• We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Furthermore we practice immersion of believers in water in obedience to His command, a memorial meal (aka Communion, Lord's supper, Eucharist, Passover, etc.) consisting of unleavened bread and wine/grape juice in celebration and remembrance of Christ atoning sacrificial death and resurrection, and with anticipation for His coming again.
That should give you an idea where I am on the important and usual stuff.
I don't post here often. But occasionally pop in, and sometimes drop a few lines.
Yours in Him,
