Spirituality is a way of being. It is a journey. At National Avenue Christian Church, we pursue a new kind of progressive spirituality. We embrace traditional worship, but we encourage doubt and informality. We raise intellectual questions, but we thrive on authenticity and honesty. We root ourselves in the richness of the Christian tradition, and we recognize God’s truth in all its diverse forms. We’re not afraid to be imperfect. The truth is, there is no one path, but we all walk together. Wherever you are on your faith journey, you’ll find a place here.

  1. But if you’re interested…. Long ago, when I was young and single, I asked a minister that and he said, “We do now and you’re our first member!” Before long we had about 15 and it was great.

  2. I searching for a church that is open to gay lifestyles. I am a single mother of two boys, that has two moms. I want to be comfortable, and my children to not be judge for having two moms. I don’t want to disrespect and church by just showing up, and making your congregation uncomfortable. Please let me know how your church handles this type of situation. Thanks for your time.

  3. Hello. This is Pastor Dennis. I visited your church on 5/7/17. I want to join the church. I emailed the church. I would love to be baptized into the church. I want to be a DOC. I was baptized in another denomination, but want to be baptized at your church. How do I set that up? I want to be a member.
