Diversity in the Church
At Capital Christian Center, we fervently pray against the spirits of disunity, hatred, and prejudice that would seek to divide humanity. We acknowledge that there is more to be said and done to see our cities, our country, and our world healed from the evil of racism and for reconciliation to take place. It is our goal to be agents of change in the days, weeks, months, and years to come.
