I am looking for a non-conservative charismatic or Pentecostal church in the DC area, not just in the District. By non-conservative, I mean a church that is not very conservative on social issues or affiliated with the religious right. I am a progressive who happens to be a charismatic Christian. I am even open to a mainline church that has streams of charismatic worship integrated into its service. By charismatic, I mean churches that believe in the current operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including speaking in tongues and healing and that feature spirited, contemporary worship.

First Assembly of God in Alexandria may be right up your alley.

Thanks Alan. However, I am well-acquainted with the Assemblies of God denomination and find that almost all their churches are way too conservative on social and cultural issues. I have yet to find a liberal Assemblies of God congregation.

Thats an oxymoron. AG churches are by definition conservative.

true, although every denomination has congregations that are not in line with the general theological slant of the denomination. there are certainly some liberal southern baptist churches out there, as evidenced by the attempts to expel them from the SBC.
