OUR PURPOSE IS TO BE JESUS TO ALL PEOPLE.
OUR PURPOSE IS TO BE JESUS TO ALL PEOPLE.
TO SEE ALL PEOPLE ENCOUNTERING JESUS, BECOMING LIKE JESUS, AND LOVING LIKE JESUS.
We are a church centered on the person of Jesus and we seek to encounter him. We worship Jesus in spirit, listen to him in scripture, commune with him in sacrament, and baptize into his name. We lovingly invite others to encounter Jesus too.
Become Like Jesus
It is not enough to just know about Jesus, we are a church that seeks to become like him. Just like Jesus we pray, study, rest, and worship with others and individually. Spiritual maturity is not simply knowing Jesus but being people formed into his image.
Love Like Jesus
We are a church that abundantly serves, gives, and goes. We desire to love and care for lost and hurting people, locally and globally, as we love all people with the love we have already generously received from Jesus.
The Bible is God's living word and the catalyst for life-change
People Matter Most
All people matter to God, so they also matter to us
God is generous and so we are generous with our time, talent, and resources
We worship the living God through our spiritual gifts and with excellence
Life-change is best accomplished in the context of loving relationships with authentic believers
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.
We Believe in one God-Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Matthew 3:16-17, John 1:1, John 4:24, John 14:9-10,
We Believe God is the creator of man and all things.
Genesis 1:1, Acts 17:24-28, Colossians 1:16
We believe God is worthy of all affection, glory, and honor. God is the supreme joy, and He is most glorified when mankind is most satisfied in him.
Romans 12:1, Revelation 4:11, Psalm 16:11, Philippians 3:8
We Believe in Jesus Christ, the only son of God, born of a virgin, died and
rose again to be the savior of the world.
John 3:16, Matthew 1:18-25, 1 Corinthians 15:1-5
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We Believe the Holy Spirit dwells within every Christian
We Believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, a lamp to our feet, and a light unto our path. We Believe the Bible comes from God and is the authority for all matters of faith.
Romans 15:4, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16, Psalm 119:105
We Believe that every person has worth as a creation of God, but willfully sinned, and as a result is lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.
We Believe that salvation, the forgiveness of sins, comes by grace though the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross.
Matthew 26:28, Romans 5:8-11, Ephesians 2:8-9
We Believe the bible teaches that those accepting Jesus as Savior are to believe in Jesus as God’s Son and Savior of the world, to repent of personal sin, to confess Jesus as Lord,
and to be immersed in baptism.
Luke 24:45-47, Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19, Romans 10:9, Romans 6:1-7, 2 Peter 3:9
We Believe the Church is the body of Jesus, founded on the day of Pentecost, consisting of Christians everywhere, empowered by the Holy Spirit to make disciples of all people.
Matthew 16:13-18, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:14-47
We Believe it is God’s plan for the elders to lead the local Church.
Acts 20:28, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, 1 Peter 5:1-4
We Believe that death seals the eternal destiny of each person. The saved will inherit life everlasting, the unsaved, eternal separation from God.
We Believe Jesus will one day return for His bride, the Church,
and reign forever as King and Lord of all.
MARRIAGE AND GENDER
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person. As male or female, these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.
Genesis 2:18-25, 1 Corinthians 6:18, 1 Corinthians 7:2-5, Hebrews 13:4, Genesis 1:26-27
SANCTITY OF LIFE
We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions, including pre-born babies, children who are orphaned, those who experience physical or mental challenges, and every other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life.
