DHK WROTE: I would say that not everyone knows that John was the first Baptist. John was an immerser and was called that because of the immersion he called all to obey in repentance for the remission of sins. So He did not teach faith alone. So is John the baptist the founder of the Baptist churches? I was under the impression that Jesus was the founder of His church, so if John was the first baptist was he a Christian? Are baptist then of John's church or Christ's church?
