Welcome to the online presence of Calvary Baptist Church. We’re hoping this site gives you a good sense of who we’re trying to be as a community of faith here on this busy corner of downtown Washington, D.C., and that you’ll feel welcome to join us in person anytime!
Here at Calvary we say we are an ecumenical, multi-racial, multi-ethnic Christian body that reaches out to the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ. To that end, we strive to be welcoming, responsive, trusting and prayerful in everything we do.
That’s our mission statement…and when we say it, we really mean it.
To be thoughtful and committed about who we say we are—people who take the message of Jesus seriously—means more than adhering to a set of beliefs or practicing a list of behaviors. Instead, around here following Jesus is a whole-life proposition, one into which we pour our best selves and everything we have, and challenge each other to do the same.
If you need a place to be welcomed, to ask hard questions, to learn what it means to be a radical follower of Jesus, please be in touch. With every experience of this community you should expect to be challenged, encouraged, taught, fed, stretched and, most of all, loved.
Welcome to the adventure of faith; we’ll be looking for you!
