WHO WE ARE

What We Believe

Our church includes people from all walks of life

Capital Baptist Church was founded in 1978 by the Southern Baptist Convention and some local Christians. We desire to reach out to people from all backgrounds because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is GOOD NEWS for all.  We are a warm fellowship in Carson City, NV. We preach and teach the whole counsel of God.  We love God, and we love people.  We believe the Bible from cover to cover. We are imperfect yet striving to be more like Christ each day!

We are a Southern Baptist Church (SBC)

We link our arms and hearts with other Baptists (and like-minded Christians) here in Northern Nevada and around the world in order to reach more people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Our preaching is mostly expositional, and typically through books of the Bible.

Capital Baptist Church offers opportunities for worship and ministry.  We have ministries for people of all ages, from infants through adults.  We’d love to get to know you and have the privilege of sharing Christ’s love with you!    Join us this Sunday…come treasure God with us!

Our Beliefs

The Statement of Faith of Capital Baptist Church is The Baptist Faith and Message (2000), which was adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention on June 14, 2000. It can be read in full at www.sbc.net, including scriptural support, or a hard copy can be obtained in the church office. A summary of The Baptist Faith and Message (2000), is as follows:

God

God

There is one and only one living and true God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. God the Son in His incarnation as Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, lived in sinless obedience, was crucified as a substitute for sinners, rose from the dead and ascended to the Father as Lord of all. He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man. God the Holy Spirit, fully divine, inspired the Scriptures; exalts Christ; convicts men of sin, righteousness and judgment; calls men to the Savior; effects regeneration; and seals the believer until the day of redemption. This triune God, infinite in holiness and all other perfections, is worthy of our highest love, reverence and obedience.

Salvation

Salvation

Salvation comes by grace alone through repentance and faith in Christ alone. God the Father sent his Son into the world. God the Son, Jesus Christ, obtained eternal redemption for the believer by His own blood. God the Holy Spirit regenerates sinners, by which they are justified, enabled in sanctification and glorified. Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, justifies, sanctifies and glorifies sinners. It is consistent with the free agency of man, and comprehends all the means in connection with the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ and sanctified by His Spirit will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end.

Man

Man

God made man in His own image, male and female, as the crowning work of His creation. Man has been separated from God because of sin and is under condemnation. Only the grace of God can bring man into His holy fellowship and enable man to fulfill the creative purpose of God.  As image bearers of God, every person of every race possesses full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

The Scriptures

The Scriptures

The Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of himself. It is truth without any mixture of error and, therefore, totally true and trustworthy. It is a testimony to Christ, who is himself the focus of divine revelation. It has salvation for its end, is the center of Christian union and is the supreme standard by which all else is judged.

The Church

The Church

Following the pattern of the New Testament, the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the gospel, governed by Christ through his word, seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. The ordinances of the church are believer’s baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. The New Testament speaks also of the church as the Body of Christ, which includes all of the redeemed of all ages, believers from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.

The Social Order

The Social Order

Christians are under obligation to make the will of Christ supreme in their own lives and in their families, seeking to bring industry, government, and society as a whole under the sway of the principles of righteousness, truth and brotherly love. They are to pray and to labor that the Kingdom may come on earth, while awaiting the full consummation of the Kingdom at the return of Jesus Christ.
