    I used to be one. Actually, you could say I was raised as one.

    I guess that allowed me to congregate with Evangelicals, Baptists,
    Presbyterians, Methodists, and Pentecostals, depending on where
    I was living (and I did a lot of relocations throughout my younger
    years) and feel very, very comfortable in all of those communities.

    Recently, though, I feel very cozy and at home in Pentecostalism.

    I used to visit various churches but I became viewed as nomadic by some and they couldn't understand why I wouldn't "join".

    Pentecostal Christianity is virtually as diverse today as the system it/they came out of was, back at the turn of the last century.

    You mean independent of churches, right?

    Sounds good, and I was about to say that I am one (loosely), but then again, other than Jesus and his awesome teachings, I identify with a lot of other spiritual,(non-christian), people as well.

    Yeah, it differs from one congregation to another.

    Let's say that I am not very knowledgeable about the doctrinal
    differences between the branches I mentioned nor I pay a lot
    of attention to them. However, I can feel the differences in the
    love of the community for the Lord and for each other, as well
    as its passion when praying and praising.

    I feel a lot of that in the one I attend currently, and it happens to
    be pentecostal.

    I attend church but do not define myself by any name other than Jesus Christ.

    I may be wrong but my understanding is that the Pentecostal churches
    do not believe in the Triune God, but in the oneness of God. This may
    only be a branch, I am not sure.

    You are wrong, I've attended Pentecostal churches, was a member of one for
    years and without a doubt they believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit being
    one.

    Correct, there are many factions. I am not a trinitarian; I believe in 1 God who is the 1 Lord of all, manifested in a number of ways. His revelation for this dispensation and purpose is 'Jesus'.

    I am with Kelly Jay there, at least with the Pentecostals I know.
    It's all about the Holy Spirit! 🙂

    I don't know about being independent.

    1 Corinthians 12:27 - Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

    I am a member of a local assembly of like minded believers though.
