We are a small, diverse ecumenical church with members from different faith backgrounds and ways of expressing our faith. We hold in common the desire to follow Jesus through peacemaking, work for justice (especially economic justice), and environmental sanity.All are welcome, regardless of faith (or lack of it), religious background, age, gender, sexual orientation, wealth (or lack of it), ethnicity, or any other characteristic that ordinarily separates us from one another. We are open and affirming and value the differences among us. Check us out! We meet at the Festival Center at 1640 Columbia Rd NW in the Adams-Morgan neighborhood of Washington.  Our church services begin at 10:00 AM Sundays. Click here for map.

Christ Has Set Us Free

Orlando Tizon

Text: Galatians 5:1,13-25

Paul’s letter to the Galatians reads:

"For freedom Christ has set us free. Do not submit yourselves again to slavery.”

"For you were called for freedom. Do not use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh. Serve one another in love. Live by the Spirit."

In the early part of the letter, Paul talks about circumcision.  In the early church one of the tensions going on was between a group called the Judaizers, who were mainly Jewish Christians  wanted to impose Jewish law and practices on Christians at that time, like circumcision. This is one of the earliest recorded tensions in the early Christian church. Paul condemned the Judaizers and this imposition. This became especially a problem when they wanted to evangelize the Gentiles, moving out of the Jewish area and going to the Gentiles to talk about Christ and the gospel.
