Who We Are

We are a progressive Baptist congregation about twelve miles from Washington, DC, that constantly seeks to be responsive to the movement of the Spirit to establish justice, peace, and the reign of God "on earth, as it is in heaven."

We do our best to follow the example of Jesus by creating a caring, inclusive community; by studying the Bible and allowing it to speak to us in new and challenging ways; by worshiping God in spirit and in truth; by nurturing relationships within our fellowship and developing new relationships with those outside our church; by building bridges and seeking understanding through interfaith dialogue; and by seeking to be peacemakers in all aspects of our corporate life.

We are a welcoming and affirming congregation, and we welcome diversity of thought, experience, race, and sexuality. No matter what your family looks like, you are welcome at Ravensworth Baptist Church.
