Our Story


Abiding Presence Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We believe that each and every person is a beloved child of God. Whoever you are and whatever your life journey has been, one thing is certain - God loves you. We respond to this amazing, indescribable love that God has for us by loving God and loving other people. Our basic theology can be summed up in the belief statement, "Because God loves us, therefore we love one another."

Take a look at what we're up to as we go about God's work of Connecting People to Christ through Community. Above is a video we made to share with the Metropolitan Washington DC Synod of the ELCA in appreciation for their partnership in helping us to call a Pastor for Discipleship through the New Connections campaign.

We invite you to take a look Where We’re Going in 2019 and at our annual publication Where We've Been and We Are Going, which will give you a glimpse of our current three year vision and ministry priorities.
