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).
“Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted” (Galatians 6:1). Restoring the erring is an area in which the church is badly failing.
It is reported that only fifty percent of new converts remain faithful for over five years. Brethren, this just ought not to be. We must do a better job of nurturing our babes in Christ " encouraging, teaching, loving, and bonding, making them feel a welcome and important part of the family of God.
The apostle Paul admonishes us to restore the erring in the spirit of meekness. How can we accomplish this if we don’t care about our brethren? And how can we truly care for someone we barely even know? The church is the family of God, and as such we must work to develop a genuine love for each other. Only by spending time in prayer for each other, and by spending time getting to know each other, can we build that bond that God would have us to build. If we have the love we should have for our spiritual family we will be grieved when a brother or sister goes back into the world.
Every person who obeys from the heart the Gospel plan of salvation becomes a child of God, and God adds him to the church (Acts 2:47). He will always be a child of God. Though he may become unfaithful, he does not cease to be a part of God’s family: he is instead a wayward child. Consider the children of Israel, how time and time again they were unfaithful. God grieved over their sins, yet forgave them each time they repented and turned back to Him.
Each of us must truly become our brother’s keeper. We must work to set the proper example for others, and we must encourage and build each other up. We must not be timid about talking to one another about matters that concern our souls and where we will spend eternity. May each of us determine to become more spiritually-minded and more sensitive concerning the needs of our brethren.
Christianity is a serious business; we are preparing for eternity. Let’s be sure we don’t take it too lightly " our souls are dependent upon it!

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."
