The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. This statement of fundamental truths is intended simply as a basis of fellowship among us (i.e. that we all speak the same things, I Cor. 1:10; Acts 2:42).


Alfred Street Baptist Church traces its origins to 1803, during the period when Thomas Jefferson served as the third president of the United States. At that time, Baptists in Northern Virginia worshipped at the Backlick Baptist Church on Little River Turnpike.

The Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley is the exciting, gifted and anointed senior pastor of the historic Alfred Street Baptist Church (ASBC) in Alexandria, VA. A courageous, dynamic, and visionary leader, he is only the eighth pastor in the church’s 216-year history of worshipping Christ while serving humankind. Dr. Wesley is regarded as one of the most prolific and prophetic voices of justice and grace in our generation. Currently, he is part of the first of its kind in the world; the inaugural cohort of only ten exceptional students in the PhD in African American Preaching and Sacred Rhetoric program at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Under Dr. Wesley’s extraordinary leadership, the Alfred Street Baptist Church has grown from 2,500 members to 10,000, 50,000 plus monthly online viewers, 100 million you tube views and 80 active ministries with an emphasis on children’s ministries and missions.
