This Major Sect is 414 years old.

The first Baptist Church in Britain dates to 1609 but some Baptists claim their religion originates with John the Baptist. Writings supporting this claim began to be published in the United States in the latter part of the 19th century. The founder started the first Baptist church in 1605 but several years later recanted all he had written and tried to enter the Mennonites. His followers left for England to establish another Baptist Church
