Most denominational differences come in the form of practices and "government" as opposed to actual theology. What I mean by government is things such as the way we pick leaders, if we're run by elders or deacons or both, type of music used, ect.

There are some that have major belief differences. Some charismatic churches believe that tounges is the true mark of the Spirit and that if you can't speak in tongues you're not saved, some groups believe you can loose your salvation, and there are variances there within.

Most of them though have a generally similar core of the gospel. Its the implications where some groups split up.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. 1 John 3:16
