Worship at CHBC – A Reminder
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord. CHBC is a church that exists for the glory of God as we accomplish three purposes: to Equip believers, Exalt Christ, and Extend the Gospel. People who do not know Christ will enter eternity separated from God forever. Extending the gospel is not an activity, it is a purposeful act of genuine love and concern for the lost. We are committed to gather, but after we have met corporately and publicly for worship, we must scatter to the world proclaiming Jesus. As we gather, please remember:
- Be aware of your own health as you prepare to come to Sunday School and worship
- Worship with us online if you are experiencing the symptoms of COVID-19, or other transmissible illnesses
- While you are present wash your hands, and do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth
Sanctity of Human Life Sunday – January 16, 2022
Each year we remind ourselves of the value of human life from conception to eternity, by participating in Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. This year we again have the privilege of getting to tour the mobile pregnancy center, The Patty Ann. Kathy Gibson will be present to give testimony in church, as well as to give tours of the mobile unit to explain how women and men are being reached with the gospel in the moment of a crisis pregnancy. We will also kick off the Baby Bottle Campaign where you can contribute loose change to the Hope Pregnancy Centers of Oklahoma for the next month.
Explore CHBC – January 23, 30, and February 6
Explore CHBC is the membership orientation class offered by Capitol Hill Baptist Church for guests to help introduce them to the history, vision, and mission of CHBC. The class lasts three weeks and meets at 9 AM in the church conference room. Pastor Mark is the facilitator of this class. During the three weeks you will learn about biblical church membership, why it is highly valued at CHBC, and what remaining steps there are to becoming a member.

Scripture of the Month
Each week CHBC says aloud a passage of Scripture during our morning worship gathering. This is done for two reasons. First, we are commanded in Scripture to encourage one another with the Word of God. Second, we want to emphasize the spiritual discipline of Scripture memory. The Scripture we will say and memorize for the month of January is Genesis 1:1-2, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” You can receive a text to your phone with this verse set to music by texting the word “CHBCVERSE” to the number (302) 207-SONG (7664).
A Moment in Church History
On January 13, 1547, The Council of Trent met to debate the doctrine of Justification by Faith Alone and denounced it along with other tenets of Reformed Protestantism. Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.
We are ambassadors for Christ. Pray that we will be faithful to share the good news of Jesus Christ with the world. God desires to reconcile sinners to Himself and does so as they hear of Christ and repent of their sins.
2 Corinthians 5:19-20
“namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”
