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).
One of the most well-known events in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ is His triumphant entry into Jerusalem, a time in His earthly life during which He was in favor with the common people of His country. According to Matthew 21, the disciples brought a donkey and her colt to Jesus, sat him on them, and led him into Jerusalem (v. 7). A great multitude welcomed Him, spreading their clothes on the road and praising God. (vv. 8-9)
All of this was in fulfillment of a prophecy by the prophet Zechariah hundreds of years earlier. Zechariah wrote, "Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey" (Zechariah 9:9 NKJV).
As an ancient Jew read this passage, he would nodded with approval at the beginning. Yes, a King was coming. He would be just, as kings should be. He would have salvation, that is, he would deliver his people Israel from their enemies. But wait! "Lowly and riding on a donkey?" What kind of king is this? You see, a donkey in that time was not a fitting mount for a proper king. The proper beast for a king was a horse, an animal fit for riding into battle, not a donkey, a beast of burden. That was why many rejected Jesus as the Messiah. He did not fit their conception of a king while He was on earth. He was humble and lowly, and He did not fight the Roman Empire with a physical sword.
What they did not realize, though, was that His lowly demeanor was only temporary. Later, when He returned to heaven, He would take His rightful place at the right hand of God. In fact, he is explicitly portrayed as sitting on a "white horse," "judg[ing] and mak[ing] war" (Revelation 19:11 NKJV). Christ is a true King, just, powerful, and leading His forces into battle against the powers of darkness. Are we willing to follow and fight?

Words From The Early Church
Hippolytus (A.D. 170-236), in his Discourse on the Resurrection and Incorruption, preached, "'Men,' he says, 'in the resurrection will be like angels of God,' to wit, in incorruption, and immortality, and incapacity of loss. For the incorruptible nature is not the subject of generation; it grows not, sleeps not, hungers not, thirsts not, is not wearied, suffers not, dies not, is not pierced by nails and spear, sweats not, drops not with blood. Of such kind are the natures of the angels and of souls released from the body. For both these are of another kind, and different from these creatures of our world , which are visible and perishing."
