Welcome Beloved to the Gethsemane Baptist Church Website

We are tremendously thankful that you responded to the move and direction of the Holy Spirit as He led you to our web page. I firmly believe that it was no accident that God led you here, and I am sure that you will receive a greater blessing by visiting us at Gethsemane.

For almost one hundred years Gethsemane has stood tall among churches in the nation’s capitol. Gethsemane has established a long legacy of nurturing men and women of God who have faithfully ministered to the needs of its surrounding community. Moreover, in addition to being a training ground for Christian leadership, God has also blessed the Gethsemane family by nurturing Christian businesspeople, public servants and community leaders who continue to plant indelible footprints in institutional corridors throughout America and abroad.

Gethsemane is a great place to grow in the wisdom and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We have a host of ministries to meet the needs of people spiritually and holistically. We are a Word centered and mission focused church which takes Jesus’ mandate of going out into the church to make disciples seriously.

I invite you to visit our Church to worship and/ or study with us. If you are a “new babe” in Christ, Gethsemane is the place where you will learn and grow strong in the Lord. If you are already familiar and knowledgeable about the Bible, then our teaching ministries provide a wonderful place for you to build upon your faith and help edify the Body of Christ as we collectively explore the unsearchable riches of Jesus Christ.

As Senior Pastor, I am available to assist you and your family in whatever ways that I can. My door is always open for you to drop in and ask questions about your spiritual journey, share your ideas about ministry, or just testify as to how the Lord is doing great things in your life. If you are experiencing challenging moments in your life and need spiritual guidance and direction, stop in or call us to see if we can be of assistance.

I look forward to meeting you at this vineyard, affectionately known as the “Garden of Gethsemane”. I earnestly pray that the Spirit of the Living God will do great things in your life as you seek and serve Him. Remember, if you delight yourself in the Lord, he shall give you the desires of your heart. (Psalms 37:4)

Yours in His Service,
Reverend Khalfani Drummer, J.D., M. Div.
