Presbyterian and Baptist


City Wilmington Delaware
City Wilmington Delaware

The earliest Swedish settlers established a Lutheran congregation in 1638. Most of the early English colonists belonged to the Church of England, while Dutch settlers were usually members of the Reformed Church. New Castle’s Immanuel Episcopal Church (1703) was the first Church of England parish in Delaware. Many Quakers moved to Delaware from Pennsylvania in the 18th century. During the late 17th and early 18th centuries, Presbyterian and Baptist churches were established, and after the American Revolution members of the Church of England in the United States reorganized as the Protestant Episcopal Church.

Methodism


Methodism, introduced in the mid-18th century, became the dominant religion in Delaware by about 1800. In the 19th century the number of Roman Catholics greatly increased with the arrival of immigrants from Europe.

Protestant


Although many Protestant denominations are now represented, the United Methodist Church has the largest membership, particularly in rural areas. But statewide and particularly in Wilmington and other cities Roman Catholics are the largest single religious group, representing about one-quarter of all church members. In addition, there are a few Jewish and Orthodox congregations in the state. "Delaware" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
