Worship has continued here faithfully since 1882!

The village of Capac was in existence for only about five years when Pastor Hicks, of whom little is known, organized a Methodist Protestant Church Society in February, 1862 in the midst of the Civil War period. The earliest meeting place was a pioneer schoolhouse located on the site of the former Duane Martin home on East Church Street. A few years later, the meeting place moved for a time to the Federated Church, which was located at the present site of the Baptist Church. On July 6, 1880, this property was sold to the Baptists for the sum of $350. The Methodist Protestant congregation consequently purchased the pioneer schoolhouse and, with Rev. Gee as pastor, conducted dedicatory services on November 13, 1880. This building was used for worship until the church on West Mill Street was completed in 1882. Judge D.C. Walker, founder of the village of Capac, donated the land on West Mill Street for the construction of a brick church and parsonage building.

This brick building served the congregation for the next three decades. The highlight of this period occurred in August, 1902, when the Michigan Annual Conference of the denomination was held in the Capac church; the only time in history such an event was held here. This occurred during the pastorate of the Rev. W.C. Harger, one of the early prominent men of the Conference. The Conference President was Rev. John W. Gray, who was also a former pastor of the local church.

The modern era of the church began under the pastoral leadership of Dr. William Cole, who oversaw the construction of the present larger church building. The cornerstone is dated 1911.

The dedication service of the new church was held on June 8, 1912. A proud possession of the new church is its beautiful Hinners pipe organ. At the time of its installation, it was rated as the finest in any church in a town of this size in Michigan, and one of the finest instruments north of Detroit and Adrian, whose college chapel had one of the greatest organs of the Midwest.

The year 1950 marked the complete renovation of the sanctuary. A new divided chancel, new lighting, redecoration in soft pastel tones of the sanctuary, and renovation of the Sunday School and social rooms was accomplished at that time. In 1962, the church celebrated its 100th anniversary of worship in Capac. A special celebration was held to mark this historic event.

With the arrival of the twenty-first century, a major task was undertaken in the restoration of the nearly thirty stain glass windows throughout the church. This was a building wide project that encompassed the disassembly, cleaning, re-leading, and reinstallation of the beautiful large windows. Protective lexiglass coverings were also placed on the outside for the further protection of the stain glass from the outside elements. When completed, the sanctuary was repainted. In 2009 a major renovation was undertaken in the basement with a complete remodeling.

In September, 2012, the Church held its 150th anniversary with a wonderful catered meal and music provided by the talented Michigan trio the Gospelmen. It was a great celebration! The ownership of the church building was transferred in November, 2017, to Capac Bible Church to begin a new era of continuing worship and service in the community. We extend a warm welcome and invite you to be a part of this historic church!


We are united together at Capac Bible Church to promote the worship of God; to proclaim the complete Gospel of Jesus Christ, including both its personal and national aspects; to develop in ourselves and in others the knowledge of our duties to God and our fellowmen; to seek inspiration, a love for truth, a passion for righteousness, and an enthusiasm for service.

We pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that will re-energize and invigorate Christ's body, His Church, to evangelize the world's masses that remain unaware of our Savior's saving blood shed for their sins, His instituting of the principle of reconciliation, and of His command to love one another. It can only be through implementing the teachings of the Word of God that the world can ever obtain "peace on earth and goodwill to men."

To this end we covenant with each other to strive for the achievement of the foregoing and to live as Christian brethren, submitting to the authority of Holy Scripture, proclaiming its eternal truths, working, giving, praying for its increase, its purity, its peace, and seeking to promote its influence and guidance in leading others to the Kingdom of God.

Acknowledging Jesus Christ to be our Savior and Lord, and accepting the Holy Scriptures as our rule of faith and practice, and recognizing the privilege and duty of uniting ourselves for Christian fellowship, the enjoyment of Christian ordinances, the public worship of God, and the advancement of His Kingdom in the world, we do now in the sight of God and invoking His blessing, solemnly covenant and agree with each other to associate ourselves as followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, as warranted by the Word of God, and as laid down in...

THE APOSTLES CREED: "I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. The third day He arose from the dead, ascended into heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. AMEN."

Historic 1911 Pipe Organ provides beautiful inspiring music at every worship service!
Hinners Organ 1911 at Capac Bible ChurchA surprisingly high percentage of the instruments of the Pekin, Illinois, Hinners Organ Company have survived, a fact which suggests both that they were remarkably well-built instruments and that the church that bought them was the kind of church that values and looks after its organ. The 1911 Hinners at Capac Bible Church, Capac, Michigan is a particularly nice one in several ways. It has a lovely quarter-sawn oak case with excellent carved brackets at the corners. It has a sonorous Open Diapason that gives the organ a surprisingly bright plenum when the octave coupler is used, and it has an interesting, rather keen Salicional on the Swell. The action is also quite light even when both manual couplers are in operation. The stoplist:

Great: C-c4, 61 notes

8' Open Diapason 61, 1-17 in facade
8' Dulciana 61
8' Melodia 61
Bellows Signal

Swell: C-c4, 61 notes, enclosed

8' Violin Diapason 61
8' Salicional 49, 1-12 grooved to Stopped Diapason
8' Stopped Diapason 61

Pray with us that we may be wise to win souls, and that they may have an enlightened mind to understand the Truth, a sanctified memory to retain and deepen the impression, a willing heart to embrace it, affection to love it, experience to enjoy it, and a glad and grateful life displaying its reality and power. And to our God, the God of our fathers, will we ascribe all the glory and praise. Amen!!!
