The gospel is good news of what God has done to establish his kingdom and deal with the problem of our sin through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. It is the heart of the Christian faith, the central message of the Bible, and the only hope for humanity.
At Capitol City Christian Church, we believe that the gospel is central. Everything in our church revolves around it; it is the main thing. We therefore maintain complete doctrinal unity in the gospel and in other clear areas of biblical teaching.
In secondary matters, however, a wide variety of interpretations are tolerated, so long as those interpretations do not contradict biblical teaching, are not made a test of fellowship or church membership, and are not made essential to the church’s teaching. Acknowledging that, we believe:
That God the Father is the Creator of all things. He is eternal, loving, merciful and just.
That the Old and New Testament Scriptures are the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God. The Bible is the authority for our beliefs and teachings.
That humanity was created in the image of God. However, because Adam sinned, all humanity in him fell into sin, and is, therefore, lost. Only through faith in Jesus Christ can sinners be justified, fully forgiven of their sin, and restored to right relationship with the Father.
That Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and our Savior. Fully human and fully God, he lived, died on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins, arose bodily from the dead according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven where he is seated at God’s right hand, making intercession for us.
That the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus provide the only basis for salvation for all who believe. Those accepting Christ by faith should repent of sin, confess their faith, and be baptized into Him, continually depending on his grace for salvation.
That the Holy Spirit is one who participates in the process of conversion and who indwells, guides, instructs, and empowers the believer.
Lord’s Supper & Baptism
That the Lord’s Supper and Baptism are ordinances for the Church during this present age. We maintain that both should be observed as they were in the days of the apostles. Therefore we offer weekly communion and practice believer’s baptism by immersion.
