Who We Are

National City Christian Church is a community of believers in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, called into being by our early leaders as a unique witness in our nation's capital. We are bound together in a covenant of love with God and one another. Our mission is to witness to our faith and to serve people, in our neighborhood, region, nation, and the world.

We will provide regular opportunities for worship, spiritual growth, and fellowship. We will minister to the special needs of individuals through programs to nurture people in discipleship.

We will seek to help everyone journey toward a fuller commitment to Christ by being an inclusive church family which fully embraces in its life and ministries people of every race, gender, age, culture, economic circumstance, sexual/gender orientation, family configuration, physical or mental condition, and all other distinctions which are the rich tapestry of God's creation.

We will feed, heal, serve, love, educate and bring hope to the people of the community and the world. We will support the work of our partner churches and the church ecumenical. With the National City Christian Church Foundation we will be stewards of the physical facilities and fulfill our role and responsibilities as the National Church of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
