Capital Baptist Church is an Independent, Bible-believing Baptist Church.
We believe that God’s Word has the answer to all of life’s problems and is the final authority for all matters of faith and practice. The Bible tells us we can know how to get to Heaven and how to live a Biblically prosperous and successful life until we arrive there. A day of confusion and instability reigns in our country, and yet God has given us His Word as a guide in these times. The Word of God instructs us personally as individuals in the husband-wife relationship, and in the parent-child relationship to make our homes a little heaven on earth. We attempt to live our lives according to the Bible, but you will find we are normal people with normal imperfections. You will also find we are friendly people who care.
We are committed at Capital Baptist Church to help people of every age find the peace that only God can provide. This is the ministry the Lord Jesus Christ has given to us. We long for you to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and for you to be involved in a church home that cares for you. We care at Capital Baptist Church – give us an opportunity to prove it.
We meet in a church building that God has provided for us in the beautiful Jerome neighborhood of Springfield. Anyone and everyone is welcome to visit us for our services!

Pastor Marty Montgomery grew up in rural Papineau, Illinois. He was born in a Christian home and trusted Jesus as his Lord and Savior at the early age of four. He attended and served at Faith Baptist Church in Bourbonnais, IL, and was called to the ministry at the age of 16. Pastor Marty then attended Providence Baptist College in Elgin, IL, where he met his wife, Heather. They were married on May 1, 2010, and the Lord has given them two little girls: Kate was born on July 18, 2013 and Josie was born on April 24, 2015.
God led Marty and Heather to serve and help for over four years at Foundation Baptist Church, a church planted in Crystal Lake, Illinois. While serving there, God gave them a burden for Illinois’ capital city of Springfield. Realizing God was calling them to plant an independent Baptist church in Springfield, the Montgomerys began raising support as missionaries to help get the church get started. Capital Baptist Church had its opening Sunday service September 20, 2015, and Pastor Marty and his family plan to be here and pastor as long as God will allow them.
