However, if the IFB churches trace their roots to the Anabaptists (i.e the so-called radical reformation) then they are most definitely Protestant churches. This is not a negative thing. It just is. It does not mean that the IFB does not have roots in the early church. I would argue that any "church" that does not trace its theological roots to the early church has some serious problems and needs to reevaluate itself. I will not saying that what you state is "bad," but from a historical perspective I must disagree. Please do not take anything here as an offense to you, because it is not meant that way.
