With it original congregation formed in 1843 under the name Vermont Avenue Christian Church, National City Christian Church in 1930 became the national representative for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination in Washington D.C., and now represents more than one million members throughout North America. The sanctuary was designed in 1929 by celebrated architect John Russell Pope and completed in 1930. Pope later planned and built the National Archives and the Jefferson Memorial. National City Christian Church has long been a church of presidents. James A. Garfield and Lyndon B. Johnson were members and actively involved in this congregation. During the 1980-81 renovation of the sanctuary, stained glass windows were installed to memorialize these two great leaders of our country. National City Christian Church is actively involved in social service projects and supports agencies such as Martha's Table Food Bank, N Street Village and it also operates a small food bank here at the church, available to people on Wednesday mornings.

The church's music program and pipe organ are well-known and respected. Concerts by guest choral and orchestral ensembles are given throughout the year along with the church's own Friday noon-time pipe organ recital series.

The church offers three worship services on Sunday: 8:30am (Gospel), 11:00am (Hispanic, in Phillips Chapel), and 11:00am (Traditional). All are warmly welcome.

Dr. Stephen Gentle is the Senior Pastor and Charles Miller is the Minister of Music and Organist.
