The First Baptist, DC of Washington, is conscious of its location in the heart of the nation's capital city and its unique opportunity to minister to the passing parade of people from across the nation and around the world who are part of Washington's life. The transient visitor may want a worship experience. The area resident may need a fellowship of service. Our ministry also seeks to cut across any barriers that tend to divide Baptists nationally or internationally, and to offer an open place for Christian expression and endeavor. First Baptist Church ( FBC ) is a congregation committed to the belief that each individual, through the power of Christ, can be restored, renewed, redeemed. As the magnificent Redemption Window in the sanctuary is central to our sanctuary's architectural design, so is redemptive faith central to our church's mission and ministry. And at the center of that mission and ministry is a congregation at worship.
