Answers to common questions
Updated by head minister Quentin Byers
Why should we choose Capitol City Christian from so many churches? We seek to rely on Jesus over our impulses so as to mature fruitful in Jesus. We are committed to the Bible as God’s daily guidance. We care and are definitely not a crowd you can slip away from unnoticed. We do want to get to know you.
Do you have a denominational affiliation? Capitol City Christian Church is a self-governing nondenominational Church that seeks to rely on Jesus God’s Son our Savior and His word (the Bible) alone to help us control our impulses and to mature in usefulness for the Lord and His kingdom. We baptism’s new believers by immersion, and we celebrating the Lord’s Supper each Sunday of the week. We seek to follow Christ to the best of our ability and we are committed to the Bible as God’s daily guidance.
What do you have for children? Our children’s training team has Sunday morning Bible classes for all ages at 9:30 a.m. and children’s worship at 10:45 a.m. A teen 10:45 a.m. group meets upstairs in our building at 6:30 p.m. most Wednesdays. nd lunch together on Sundays. Many serve with us. Our music minister is a Boise Bible College graduate.
Is your worship contemporary or traditional? Yes! The team offers a fine mix of historic, quality songs and godly songs better known to collegians.
Are you an intergenerational church? Our median age matches well Boise’s population. We also build godly “grand” relationships between grandparent and grandchild generations.
How large a part does prayer plays in what you do? There’s room to improve. It is my practice to start each day and meal in prayer. Each church meeting and meal includes prayer. Someone generally prays with or for each person getting a handout. Requests and praises are in each bulletin. We have men’s and women’s prayer warriors, and requests go out on our e-mail prayer chain
Are your women’s and men’s ministries vibrant and active, as well as groups and ways to connect with others? They have annual retreats, weekly morning Bible studies, monthly breakfasts and fun nights. They also cooperate in meeting needs and in activities, and a handful enjoys a Friday breakfast together with their Bibles.
How important is local and global missions to you? It’s BIG on our hearts. Our founding minister and wife served Jesus in Hong Kong for 18 years. He’s taught parts of cross-cultural church planting often to classes from dozens of church backgrounds. Our church has encouraged Treasure Valley congregations of Chinese, Sundanese and Russian-speaking. Several of our members have served abroad short-term. 7+ mother tongues attend our English worship.
Our biggest giving beyond ourselves is to North India Christian Mission. We also give to a Bible translator for Thailand’s deaf, to International Students Inc., to a Bible evidences ministry in Ukraine, to a church planter in Ireland, to gospel radio broadcasting abroad and to a Christian mentor of young men in Zimbabwe. One member presides over an effective Haitian mission. Our Formation Alcove has news on other missions we admire for our people to know about.
We locally support Boise Bible College, Ecclesia Academy, Christian Retirement Village, Intermountain Christian Camp and LOVE In the Name of Christ of Boise. Our people weekly deliver 100s of packages of Franz bread to a dozen+ area distribution points. We offer good, hot meals in our basement on school Wednesdays free to Boise High School students.
