THE FOUNDING CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY
WASHINGTON D.C.

It is with great pride we welcome you to the Founding Church of Scientology of Washington, D.C.

Originally established in 1955 by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard, our Church and this city will forever hold an exceptional place in the history of our religion.

Today, just blocks from the historic home of the Founding Church, we serve Washington from our building on Embassy Row.

Our Church realizes Mr. Hubbard’s vision that all Churches of Scientology become what he termed Ideal Organizations (Orgs). Ideal Orgs not only provide the ideal facilities for Scientologists on their ascent to higher states of spiritual awareness and freedom, but they also serve as a home for the entire community and a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.

WHAT IS SCIENTOLOGY?

Scientology is a religion in its highest meaning, as it helps bring Man to total freedom and truth. The essential tenets of Scientology are these:

You are an immortal spiritual being.

Your experience extends well beyond a single lifetime. And your capabilities are unlimited, even if not presently realized.

Furthermore, Man is basically good. He is seeking to survive. And his survival depends upon himself and his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the universe.
