Description of Organization

A person can know a church by the commitments it keeps. Presbyterian Church of the Atonement was planted in 1947 in Wheaton, Maryland, as surrounding farmland was turned into housing for a booming post-war community. The motivation was missional, the result of a strategy to ring Washington,
D.C., with evangelical Presbyterian Churches. Three core commitments were foundational to the church at that time and still are today: To the full authority of Scripture and to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to outreach at home and missions abroad, and to the community in which the church was planted.

Our 300-member church represents more than 20 different nations of origin. Please see our full church profile at .
