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).
Some people seem to think that God is glorified in all their worship. After all, they are doing it to please God. What makes anyone think that God is so “picky” as to demand that everything be done a certain way?
A study of the Scriptures will reveal that not all worship pleases God or glorifies Him.
Nadab and Abihu offered strange fire to God in their worship, which He had not commanded (Leviticus 10:1). Fire came out from God and consumed both men. Drastic and sudden punishment! What they were doing was “worship”, but it did not please God, and He was not honored by it. Jesus said the people of His day worshiped in vain because they taught for doctrines the commandments of men (Matthew 15:9).
Citizens of Athens worshiped idols in ignorance (Acts 17:23).
Jesus taught that ”God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). If what we do in worship is not directed by the revealed truth of Almighty God, it will not be acceptable.
The Bible is clear about our worship. We are commanded to sing (Ephesians 5:19), to make melody in our heart (not on a mechanical instrument).
We are to pray (1 Corinthians 14:15).
We are to give on the first day of every week, as God has prospered us (1 Corinthians 16:1,2).
We are to commune with Him in taking the Lord’s Supper on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23, 24).
We are to teach the Word of God (Acts 2:42; 11:26).
We have no right to change the worship of God. Only God knows what will please Him. He has revealed this in the Bible. The apostles were to teach all things whatsoever Jesus commanded them. If He taught it, it will also be found in their teachings.
“Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord” (Colossians 3:17).
Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). Let’s make sure we glorify God in our worship.
