We are located at 714 S. Monroe Street in Arlington, VA. Our main service starts at 10:30AM on Sunday mornings. Below, we’ve listed a few questions that guests tend to have when looking for a church home.
What does worship look like at Arlington Baptist Church?
Our main purpose in worship is to contemplate and celebrate the glory of God in Christ Jesus. Our gatherings focus on hearing from God and responding to Him. We know the Lord through His Word, and so we come together corporately to pursue Him through reading, preaching, singing, praying, and “seeing” the truth of the Scripture. As His Holy Spirit leads us in understanding and pondering the seriousness of our sin, we are also reminded of what a great Savior we have in Jesus and the joy of living for His Kingdom in the fellowship of other believers. Our preaching is expository in that our pastors seek to proclaim faithfully the intended meaning of the Scriptures. We publicly devote ourselves to prayer as an expression of our dependence on the Lord, and we see the gracious work of God displayed visibly to us through celebrating baptisms and the Lord’s Supper.
What should I wear when I come?
You'll find a variety of dress among our members. The only encouragement in attire is that it is modest and appropriate. We want to care for one another by not dressing in a distracting way, so that we can hear from God's Word unhindered.
What should I do with my children?
At ABC, providing a safe environment for children to learn about Jesus is our top priority. All childcare volunteers are church members who have been screened, interviewed, and trained before being allowed to serve. Most of the children’s ministry volunteers are moms and dads themselves. They follow a strict policy and have a lot of fun!
If you do not feel comfortable sending your child to children’s ministry, you are free to keep your child in the service with you, and many families choose to do this. We do, however, offer children’s classes during the Sunday School hour and nursery during the Morning Service for children ages 3 years old and under. We also have a cry room if you need space to make a little more noise during the service. You can read more about our children's ministry here.
