Catholic = Christian. Baptists = Christian. Methodist = Christian, etc.
The difference between the denominations are numerous, there are thousands of denominations.
Catholics believe in the saints in heaven and that they can pray for those on earth. They believe that the communion transforms into the actual body and blood of christ. They believe in confession to a priest. They believe in infant baptism. They do not believe in any form of birth control.
These are some things that they believe that some other denominations do not.

As others have said Catholics are Christians but not all Christians are Catholic. Like apples are fruit but not all fruits are apples.
The difference between a Catholic and a "Chritians" is different based on which Christian denomination you're talking about. There are many similarities with most Christians - a belief in the Holy Trinity, the inerrancy of the bible, that we are saved only by God's grace. Generally speaking, Protestants (including Baptists and non-denominational) Christians differ from Catholic and Orthodox Christians on two main points - the ideas of "sola scriptura" (bible only) and in "faith alone".
