Our History

Seekers Church, along with a number of other Christian communities, was born out of the Church of the Saviour in Washington, DC. We began worshiping as a faith community within the Church of the Saviour in 1976, when the original Church of the Saviour congregation divided into smaller sister communities. In 1995, Seekers Church separately incorporated in the District of Columbia, as part of the major restructuring of the Church of the Saviour in which each of the original sister communities became independent.

The life of Seekers Church is based on an amazing belief: each one of us is called by God to a particular work in the world that helps bring about God’s vision for all of creation. Young or old; regardless of experience, skills or education; despite our past successes or failures — God issues each of us an individual call to be about a particular work in the world and in the church. The spiritual journey in Seekers Church grows out of a commitment to answer “Yes” to this call from God, to live out this call with integrity; and to accountability to one another for this commitment.

It is in following our call that we experience the mystery of God’s presence in our community and an ever-deepening friendship with God in our inner lives. We grow in our faith, find rich fellowship within Christian community, and experience new life and healing, all by following our call.
