These movements showed citizens the how to reason and think for themselves, instead of just following authority. They felt that people should follow the way of Jesus instead of blindly following the current leaders in authority.

The Episcopal church does not recognize the authority of the Pope.
Missionary Baptist Churches do not believe in denominations or the invisible governance of another higher organization. They believe that the management of the churches should be independent of each other and therefore visible. Churches of these kind trace back their church authority through the chain of churches to the early Christian churches of the first century.Southern Baptist churches are churches linked to the Southern Baptist Convention, an organization of churches and pastors who plant new churches and manage them through the local convention mission.. therefore each church organized are not independent in local management. There is also a question here of church authority which could not be traced back to the early Christians because said authority stops at the convention.

Christian sources of authority are primarily the Bible. Some Christian churches have leaders who receive revelations from God giving them authority like the Catholic Pope or the Mormon Prophet.
Asking for the head of 'the Baptist church' is like asking who is the king of the United States. There is no person who is the authority, like the Catholics' pope. Baptist churches often are part of an association, such as the Southern Baptist Convention. However, even in these associations often churches remain autonomous--there is no one with authority over all Baptist churches. The only authority figure we truly have is Jesus Christ, and that is for all true Christians alike.
