What do we Believe?
Capitol Hill Presbyterian is committed to following Jesus, obeying Scripture, and guided by the basic tenets of Reformed Theology. We are a Presbyterian Church, specifically PC(USA). Our theology is biblically based, expressed in our Book of Confessions and lived out in our Book of Order. These confessions, along with our Book of Order, comprise the constitution of our denomination.

About our Church:
The unique story of Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church began as a vision for a new community of faith, rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ, to love and serve our Creator, each other, Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, and beyond.
This community was born of the merger between two local Presbyterian churches, and has grown to include many other members committed to following the example of Jesus by reaching out to extend his hand of compassion to the world. Our celebratory style of worship honors the diverse backgrounds and artistic influence of our congregation, emphasizing a variety of methods in which we express our faith in response to God’s love for us.
A missional community devoted to the life changing reality of Jesus Christ, growing in faith, sharing in hope, serving in love; one another, Capitol Hill, and to the ends of the earth.
