There has only been one Christ and He built just one church... His church.
The words "Capitol Heights church of Christ" simply means that we are a congregation of the Lord's church that meets in the area of town known as Capitol Heights.
We're located in the Capitol Heights community at the corner of N. Maryland St and Madison Ave in Montgomery Alabama.
We're a non-denominational church built upon the solid truth of the Bible. The teachings and ministries of our congregation reflects this belief.
Our congregation is small in number but Jesus said, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them" (Matthew 18:20).
The size of the congregation isn't important, what is important is that we worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:23).
A much discussed question in religious circles concerns the role of women in the church. There is conflict between apostolic teachings and the contemporary culture. The Bible says: ”Let the women keep silent in the churches” (1 Corinthians 14:34).
The issue is not about the spiritual worth of women, their importance in society, or their relationship to God. It is about the way God created gender and how He ordered it. Some would question that ”women keep silent in the church” is a passage that is applicable today.
Is it chauvinism? No, it merely reflects the order God established at the beginning (Genesis 3:16).
Does is mean that a woman is spiritually inferior? No, she is the final and finest of all creation. She is to make up for what is lacking in man (Genesis 2:18).
Is it just a first-century cultural thing? No, it comes by the authority of the Lord Himself. Paul said, ”If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I wrote to you are the Lord’s commandment” (1 Corinthians 14:37)
Is rejecting or ignoring this teaching so important? Yes. Jesus said, ”He who rejects Me, and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him, the work I spoke is what will judge him at the last day” (John 12:48).
