Our mission is to lead people to become Christ-centered disciples. Capital’s services offer a comfortable environment that welcomes folks just beginning to explore and discover God, as well as those believers that are centered in God and ready to be challenged to dive deeper into His truth. Our community is encouraged to own their faith, partner with others and invest themselves in the church, community and world. We aim to be a life-giving place where adults, youth, and kids seek, above all else, to Love God and Love Others.
The Wonderful Counselor
Much like the Israelites, we often exclude God from our daily lives. Even as we exclude him, we then are prone to blame him for the messes we make and get angry at him for not intervening as we’d like. A passage in Isaiah 8 reveals God’s response to a world that rejects him and is subsequently angry with him—he sends us a Messiah. Despite our mess collectively and your mess individually, Jesus, our wonderful counselor, came anyway. Take Jesus’s yolk upon you and trust his wonderful wisdom.
The God of Hope
We need hope like we need food or water—hope empowers us to keep trying, keep loving, keep smiling, and keep getting out of bed in the morning. And while it’s a good thing to hope for good things, you desperately need a greater hope to fall back on if life hands you disappointment. A hope that’s bigger than health or wealth; a hope that’s bigger than success, affirmation, or admiration; hope that’s bigger than the hope you have in your spouse, children, or mentor. You need to put your hope in someone, not something—put your hope in God.
God FOR Us
It’s not a hard concept to realize that God is omnipresent—he’s so big and so powerful, and he’s everywhere, all the time. But one aspect of God’s omnipresence that you may not have considered is that he wants to make every area of your life his home as well. He wants to take up residence in your heart and be involved in your life, working for your good and for his glory. May you live out the reality that God is not just with you, but he’s also for you.
The Hidden God
For many people, creation itself is an obvious sign of God’s existence. Yet, Isaiah 45:15 reveals that God hides. If God is real, and wants to be known, then why would he hide? Why is it that some people aren’t convinced about his existence? God gives you the freedom to decide for yourself whether you’ll acknowledge him. Practically speaking, if you want to find God, you have to want to find him. And when you seek him with all your heart, you’ll find him.
The Invisible God
One of the most obvious and most maddening aspects of God’s character is that he’s invisible. But even when he’s hard to see, his word assures us that he is with us. Seek him where you can’t see him. When you don’t have the money you think you should have, when you get the troubling diagnosis, when you get passed up for the promotion, or when your friends reject you… In spite of your circumstances, God is closer than you think—working behind the scenes to bring about his good purposes for his people.
The Forgetful God
Isaiah 43:25 reveals an important and perhaps surprising aspect of God’s character—he’s forgetful. God’s forgetfulness is not a flaw, it’s a feature. He's deliberate and active in willingly ignoring our sins. And when we truly comprehend the depths of God’s mercy & forgiveness, we can’t help but respond with holy awe and wonder. As Alexander Pope has said, “To err is human; to forgive is divine.”
