It is not accurate. All Christian churches trace their founding to 33AD.

I also found this statement on another website:

If you are Jewish, Abraham became the first Jew when God promised him: “I will make you a great nation...”. Your religion was founded by God in the Jewish calendar year 2049 (1711 BC), over 3700 years ago. God revealed Himself to the Jews through the Prophets and promised to send a Messiah. Jesus Christ, a Jew from the House of David, came to this world as His only begotten Son in fulfilment of the scriptures.

Look at the facts. These are REAL dates. Founders of other denominations changed things from the original Catholic Church.

The One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

All Christian churches trace their founding to c. 33AD

I'm a Methodist, but John Wesley didn't die for my sins. Christ did.

Not really, the Methodists trace their founding to the Wesley brothers and their “revival”

It is not accurate. All Christian churches trace their founding to 33AD.

Essentially true in that all bona fide New Testament churches were by definition founded in communion with the one holy catholic apostolic church which the LORD Jesus Christ founded upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Himself as the chief cornerstone. However there is no scriptural evidence that all the communities that call themselves "Christian churches" are, in fact, these churches. The concept of genuine or bona fide churches belonging to the one holy catholic church is clearly laid out in Acts and Revelation, and their origin is historically apostolic.

One could argue that one's community is historically apostolic but the burden of proof is on the claimant, much as the Gospels of Matthew and Luke laid claim to the geneaologies to establish the line of the Messiah.

Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.


The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.


He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.


Acts, Catholic chapter nine, Protestant verses twenty six to thirty one,
Revelation, Catholic chapter one, Protestant verse twenty,
Revelation, Catholic chapter two, Protestant verse eleven,
