Indeed-agree with DaveW. 

Most see the catholic 'church' as the end-all, be-all of Christianity until the 16th century, when Luther, then others, split off and started the reformation, and that's where all other churches came from However, that isn't the case.

All during the reign of Catholicism, which is NOT Christian, there were many other churches in existence, some good, some bad. Anabaptists were some of them; this was a name given to them by the Catholic church as an insult. It means "re-baptizers", so-called for their practice of baptizing former-Catholic converts when they became saved. Generally, this was shortened to 'Baptist' by some, while others maintained Anabaptist. These groups have grown and become various groups, like the Mennonites and Ahimsh, some independent Baptists, Independent Fundamental Baptist, etc. 

So true churches always existed from the time of Christ to the present, not part of any 'denomination'.
