what we believe
We know that there are many questions about Church and faith. We acknowledge that people have been conversing about God for centuries and the conversation will continue for centuries more. As diverse and intricate the conversation about God and faith can be, the truth is, God can be known and we can have a relationship with him. And God has made that simple. At Capital City Christian Church we believe some things must be held as essential to understanding and being in relationship with God. These are things that do not change. This is what we believe and it is who we are at the core, as a community of believers.
