Indian church


The Indian church which was started in the beginning of Christianity seems to have very similar beliefs to Catholics. I know there is actually a branch in communion with Rome. I was wondering if anyone knows how much influence this church received from the west and If not much, would it not be proof that early Christians had Eucharist theology like you see today in the catholic and orthodox churches. It just seem strange that people thing Catholics moved away from the true faith when all these early churches believed nearly the same thing.
