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.
In Matthew 24 we read that the Son of Man will come again "in the clouds of heaven," which we understand to mean the literal sense of the Word itself. This image, made by the children in a family service here on June 9th, illustrates this, showing that we can see the Lord rising out of the stories of the Bible when we understand them truly. Worship with us Sundays at 11:00 am.
It is never too early to plan for your child's education. Add The Washington New Church School to your list of schools to check out. We offer a full day Junior K/Kindergarten program beginning at age 4 and on through 10th grade

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.
