We're a "Bible Church." The Bible is our standard of faith and practice, and we are of no specific Christian denomination. The preaching and teaching of the Bible guides and unifies us as believers in Jesus Christ. Our vision is to impact lives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, beginning with the greater Washington, DC area.
Everyone matters to God, and everyone matters to us!
At McLean Bible Church, we’re passionate about showing God’s love and telling His story. We didn’t all come from a storybook Christian home. Those who worship here represent differing political views, backgrounds and life experiences. We care for everyone, including people with intellectual and physical disabilities, those suffering in poverty, young people in crisis and others who are neglected or overlooked.
Whether you’ve been burned by religion, have made mistakes or haven’t been to a church in years (or ever) we invite you to join us. You matter to us, and we want you to have a life-giving relationship with the living God through Jesus Christ.
The Gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ is our foundation at McLean Bible Church. A relationship with Jesus is the only thing that can transform a person’s life in an eternal way with God. We’re dedicated to reaching diverse communities and presenting Christ’s message so that every person in Washington, DC has a chance to understand it, believe it and experience the restoring power of the Gospel.
I am not ashamed of the message of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.Romans 1:16
Why Washington, DC?
Jesus told His disciples to spread His message, beginning in their hometown. For them, it was Jerusalem. For us, it’s Washington, DC. This metropolitan region has over six million people, and it’s one of the most powerful, educated and diverse cities in the world. It’s also one of the most secular, or non-religious. The early church inundated their cities with the message of Jesus Christ. We seek to make a similar impact on our metro region.
...and you shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.Acts 1:8
The McLean Bible Church family consists of five visitor-friendly campuses around the Washington, DC metro area. These campuses allow us to take the message of Christ out into the neighborhoods where we live and work.
What To Expect
McLean Bible Church is a safe place for your spiritual journey, but also one that will challenge you along the way.
Here are some things we’d like you to know about us:
Our members tell us the top reason they attend and serve at MBC is because we preach and teach the truth of the Bible. Our commitment to this is unwavering.
We want everyone at MBC to be equipped to share their faith with the people God has placed around them.
Providing opportunities to display Christ to our communities by meeting physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Senior Pastor Lon Solomon teaches using real life examples, just as he does with his popular “Not a Sermon, Just a Thought” radio broadcasts. Our messages are for every person of every age, at every step of their walk with Christ. The teaching delivers intellectual content in an accessible manner.
A disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ who lives in biblical community and is committed to becoming more like Him through obeying, serving and sharing Jesus. Our desire is that each MBC member would become a disciple who makes more disciples.
