Mother of God Community 

Mother of God Community, begun in 1968 and officially adopting its name in 1972, is a Catholic and ecumenical, Charismatic community, who ponder and proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord and who share a deep spiritual, transforming experience of the love of God the Father poured into our hearts through Baptism in the Holy Spirit. Our ministries include sponsoring weekly praise and worship gatherings, Life in the Spirit seminars, small fellowship groups, an active youth group, homeschooling ministry, multiple conferences, special occasion Catholic Masses, and the Mother of God School (pre-K thru 8th grade). We are also the D.C. satellite campus for Encounter School of Ministry. 


To receive revelation from the Word of God, and to proclaim it in the power of the Holy Spirit so that we bring forth Jesus to the world in imitation of Mary, the Mother of God, bearing witness, in word and in deed, to the majesty of God and the love he has lavished on us in Christ. Through the Holy Spirit we experience a joyful newness of life that helps us grow in our personal relationship with God and with one another, and we see the gifts of the Holy Spirit come alive among us, including gifts of tongues, prophecy, praise, healing and many others.
