Grace Meridian Hill exists for the holistic renewal of our neighborhood—called to love our neighbors, compelled by God’s transforming grace.
We long for Columbia Heights, Mount Pleasant, and Adams Morgan to flourish not only spiritually but also socially, culturally, economically—in every sphere of life. To that end, we are striving to be a community of good neighbors in our words and actions as we ourselves discover, and continually re-discover, how God has been a true neighbor toward us through Jesus. This story of the gospel (“good news”)—that Jesus, out of his own gracious initiative, lived, died, and rose to life to make all things new—empowers everything we are and do as a community. This includes our missional commitment to be a spiritually diverse community, walking with those who have questions and doubts about the Christian faith; a cross-cultural community, building honest, caring, and reciprocal friendships among neighbors of various racial and ethnic backgrounds; and a neighborhood-centered community, loving the people and place immediately around us and serving their needs, those of the poor and disenfranchised in particular.
