Our church name, “All Nations DC,” comes from the Biblical idea that God wants to bless all nations. This idea first appears in Genesis 12:2–3, when God promises that He will bless all the families of the Earth through Abraham.

The emphasis on all nations continues throughout the Old and New Testaments.

God ultimately blesses all nations through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. Through Jesus, we are forgiven, born again, reconciled to God, and given His Holy Spirit. Jesus commands His followers to extend this blessing by making disciples of all nations in the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20.

We see the fulfillment of God’s plan to bless all nations in the Apostle John’s heavenly vision in Revelation 7:9, where a multitude from “every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages” worships the Lord.

All Nations DC seeks to participate in God’s plan by faithfully presenting His promises, love, and grace to all persons. We are asking God to make us a community that reflects the diversity seen in the vision of Revelation 7:9.
