The City of Denton, like most larger American towns, has many churches and other religious organizations representing a wide variety of denominations. Denton is located in the Bible Belt and so has a large representation of evangelical churches—however, the presence of two universities has a strong liberalizing and diversifying effect on Denton and many moderate and liberal denominations, as well as other religions, are represented.
