“Great church, amazing congregation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We stopped in here on Good Friday. We didn't stay for the whole service, but the members of the congregation were so welcoming and friendly. They really made a difference in our vacation. Before the service several members of the church were playing the hand bells, Wow! Just wow! They were wonderful! My kids were mesmerized and wanted to stay and listen for hours. This was an unexpected highlight of our vacation to Washington DC.

“Welcoming Spirit and Excellent Biblical Teaching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Pastor Howard John Wesley is a phenomenal pastor and preacher. He's charismatic, very intelligent, and spot on with his theological knowledge. The environment is warm and inviting. The choirs are excellent. There are ministries offered to serve almost anyone.

“Great Church with Wonderful Choir”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I have visited this church several times and always enjoy the music portion of the service. Everyone there is very friendly and welcoming. The service is quite long compared to what I am accustomed to so I don't stay for the entire service; but the pastor is very good and I enjoy my visits for their many special concerts and events.
