OUr new church home

Over the years, God has faithfully provided temporary homes for APC, from the Campagna Center in Old Town Alexandria, to Del Ray Baptist Church, to the miraculous gift of the West Braddock Road Campus. We marveled then, as we do now, at the miraculous hand of God opening doors that seemed not only closed, but bolted shut, time after time.  Today, a new tabernacle is needed for our gospel hub to continue to grow and bear more fruit. After several years of prayer, planning and seeking God’s leading, we believe the time has come to build our first permanent home.   

Our new church will not only be designed to reflect the history and character of Alexandria, it will also be uniquely customized for APC’s ministries, providing a worship sanctuary, rooms to support our Sunday education activities, facilities for our robust youth programs and offices for our staff – a true home for APC.

Our ultimate vision is not for a building, as valuable as that will be. No, the real purpose resides in what our mighty God will accomplish through a church falling more deeply in love with Jesus and the truth of His gospel each day.   Our gospel adventure is far from over. As God’s love permeates, goes deeper within and flows out from us, it shapes not only us, but our friendships, marriages, families, city and world. We wait in eager expectation, knowing God will be faithful to bring more multitudes to our tabernacle who will be equipped and sent forth tomorrow, and in the generations to come.

“In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace.”

-Colossians 1:6

Neighbors of APC

APC is very desirous of continuing to be a good and respectful neighbor – both now, as we continue to use the existing property and grounds at the WBRC; throughout the building process; and once we are in our new facility. We also commit to being as transparent as possible in sharing new developments, with the neighbors, as the building process unfolds.
