Any group with a valid Sacrament of Baptism is a Christian denomination.

The Anabaptists reject infant baptism, but they have an adult baptism which (as far as I know) is valid. So they are Christians.

Mormons do not have a valid Baptism, because it is not truly a Trinitarian Baptism ('in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit'). Jehovah's witnesses do not believe in Sacraments at all; they have no baptism.
