Welcome to the Washington New Church, a congregation of the worldwide Church of the New Jerusalem. We represent a new kind of Christianity based on the symbolic meaning of the Bible, a radical new understanding of the Trinity and a process of salvation that emphasizes free will and personal responsibility. Our teaching, which is drawn from the Scriptures and from the revelations of Emanuel Swedenborg, also includes more comprehensive information about Divine Providence and life after death than any other Christian religion.
You are invited to join the Washington New Church in celebration of the "Good Tidings" that Lord Jesus Christ was born on this earth.
There are several events and services to choose from: Please make a note of the dates and times and join us for some or all of these Christmas celebrations.

Read what one parent says about The Washington New Church School, "Three of my children have gone through WNCS, and it's an amazing place to learn and grow. The children feel safe and nurtured as well as intellectually stimulated. One can sense this in the atmosphere at the school: joyful and charged with energy. I can't imagine a better place to prepare my children academically and spiritually." Amanda H., Mitchellville, MD.
