Our Church

It wasn't too long ago that a small group of 11 islanders decided they needed a non-denominational church in which to gather and worship. It was a beautiful Sunday Morning on November 13, 1977 when Capri Christian Church met in the Capri Community Center Building. There were 11 people that first day. A rather simple but complete service, including communion, marked that first meeting. The rest is a an on-going history.

Our Purpose

 

Making a Difference Together

 

Together on Sundays, we give God His glory through the fellowship of the believers, the teaching from His Word,  and the Lord’s Supper.  Individually during the weekdays, we serve in our communities showing people who God is by the way we love others.

 

Vision: GO>SHARE>IMPACT>

Our goal is to fulfill the command of Jesus to…

go out and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey all the commands I have taught you.

 

We do this because we love God who loves us so much more than we can ever imagine and we want you to know His love for you.

Who We Are

 

Meet the Team

 We love and care for each one you.  We are praying for you and want you to call on us when you need to.  We  are doing life together
