Founded in April 1964, the first meetings of Capitol City Christian Church occurred in the home of charter members Hub and Pat Hall. Quickly the congregation outgrew the Hall’s residence, and so the young church met in a local school for a season before purchasing an older church building in northeast Lincoln. Continuing to grow, the congregation moved to our present campus at 7800 Holdrege in 1971.
Five lead pastors have served Capitol City throughout our history: A. Dale Crain (1964-68); Bob Chitwood (1968-1991); Larry O. Sullivan (1991-1995); Bill Thornton (1995-2012); and James Sharp (2013-present).
Over our fifty-plus years of ministry in northeast Lincoln, the Lord’s work among us and through us has been remarkable. The small band of believers who first gathered in the Hall’s basement has been multiplied exponentially by the power of the gospel. We have seen countless people come to faith in Christ, countless lives transformed by God’s grace, and countless disciples of Jesus made and sent for the sake of the gospel. In everything, we continue to strive to be a gospel-centered community living every day for the glory of Christ.
