“Not really — between evangelical, non-Calvinist Baptists and Presbyterians and between Presbyterians and Methodists there is a vast gulf in the teachings on salvation for example. The basic dogma is not the same.”

I’d disagree. We can all recite the Apostle’s Creed.

The Apostles Creed is a beautiful creed, however, if that is the only criteria than all Christian groups from Seventh Day Adventists to Presbyterians to Catholics, Orthodox, Orientals, Assyrians fit into the same category. Even Mormons and JWs would fit in.

The Nicene Creed is a better clarifier -- the AThanasian is the most explicit, however even using these as the basis there is no differentiation beteen all Christian groups (Mormons and JWs get excluded with the Nicene Creed)
