A non-denominational church or organization is one that is not associated with any specific established Christian denomination.
For this reason, non-denominational Christian churches decide on their own policies, worship rituals and leadership methods. They quite simply call themselves Christians in service of God.

Here are six non-denominational Christian churches:
1. Churches of Christ:
Among characteristics for the Churches of Christ are taking their set of creeds must straight from the Bible, individuals are baptized as adults, and congregations are overseen by church elders and members partake in weekly communion. One characteristic that sets this group apart is that they believe solely in acapella congregational singing.

Headquartered in Texas, the Vineyard Church is another example of a non-denominational church. This church's music label, called Vineyard Music, is considered one of the top record labels in the Christian worship music industry.

3. Independent Christian Churches:
This church is similar to the Churches of Christ, except that they use instruments in their worship services. Independent Christian Churches follow the basic principles of the Restoration Movement and believe in total obedience to Christ.
