Oldest Church

As Seen on : Vivificat! , Catholic World News claims that the oldest Catholic Church ever found has been found. (Yes, excuse me for using the same word twice in one sentence.) Anyway, here is a more balanced report of the same news:

This brings me to the question of...what happens if we do find the ruins of a Church from the first century? What about the fact that we will find evidence of early Christian art, liturgical services, etc. What will Protestants who "trace their history" say about the fact that worship wasn't spontaneous but rather patterned after the Jewish liturgical form of worship? Seems like good evidence for both the Eastern Orthodox and Catholic faiths to me.
