New Community Church is a recovery and resurrection church in the tradition of Jesus’ call and vision articulated in the Beatitudes. We are small in number, vast in vision, diverse in membership, informal in style, and dedicated to putting our faith in action by embodying and sharing God’s love and alternative Way of life in Jesus in all areas of life, personal and public. New Community Church began in 1982 as a biblically and neighborhood based church that is racially, culturally and economically mixed. We operate both weekday and Sunday ministries to the historic Shaw Neighborhood near Howard University.
New Community Church has its roots in and approach to membership from the Church of the Saviour founded by Gordon and Mary Cosby in 1947 in Washington, DC.
