Jess, you're incorrect. Your first sentence is correct. You do capitalize the word church wnen referring to a specific church, Grace Lutheran Church, etc., but your second sentence is incorrect. In that instance, it is not a proper noun, and all references I've found, most specifically, "The Gregg Reference Manual," state that "the Baptist church, the Methodist church," etc., is not capitlized. Also, even when referring to your own congregation or the entirety of the entirety of Christianity, "the church" is not capitalized. Additionally, Christianity, in itself, is not a demonination. Demoninations are Baptist, Congregationalist, Methodist, etc.
