Inside and Outside the Churches of Scientology Around the World
The Founding Church of Scientology of Washington D.C. was established on the 4th of July, 1955, and was the first Church of Scientology established by L. Ron Hubbard. It was in this church that Mr. Hubbard developed many of the administrative basics which comprise what Scientology organizations are today. The first publications organization was here in Washington D.C., as well as the first Hubbard Guidance Centre providing Scientology Auditing.
When you go through the Church, you’ll see items which bespeak Mr. Hubbard’s history in D.C. and the history of the Scientology Religion – exemplefied in the Office of L. Ron Hubbard which contains many of his original works, books, and artifacts.
This character was articulated in Mr. David Miscavige‘s speech which he made at the Grand Opening of this church.
I had the opportunity to be a part of this, as I lived in D.C. for some time – taking Scientology services in this organization. It was a period of my life that always sticks out, as the staff of the Church of Scientology in D.C. are an extremely intense, extremely dedicated, but still very enthusiastic team.
