Who We Are

We're a diverse congregation located just off of the DC Capital Beltway at Georgia Avenue, across the street from the Forest Glen metro station. We are affiliated with the DC Baptist Convention. We covenant to fulfill our Christian calling by:
--Providing a place where all people can Belong. We will invite, welcome, accept, encourage, and walk together in Christian love. We will share each other’s joys and bear one another’s burdens. We will create a place for all to belong within the warmth of God’s love and care.
--Providing a place where all people can Grow. We will gather regularly for worship. We will study the Scriptures for God’s guidance, and remember our privilege of prayer. We will encourage personal growth for ourselves and others and strive to identify and exercise our unique spiritual gifts. We will follow Jesus Christ in all things and support the growth of all members of the community.
--Providing a place where all people can Serve. We will devote ourselves to sharing the Gospel throughout this community and the world. We will strive to serve as the hands and heart of Christ through ministry teams, offering our personal gifts and abilities as ministry in Christ’s name.
