The History of Dianetics and Scientology in Washington, DC

L. Ron Hubbard
  At Great Falls on the Potomac. Over the course of a remarkable life, his adventures, research and efforts to help others took him to all parts of the world, but time and again he returned to Washington, DC.

     The four years that followed at the Founding Church, with Mr. Hubbard as its Executive Director, were extremely fruitful, not only in the development of Dianetics and Scientology technology, but also in the organizational structure of the Church itself. For it was during this period that Mr. Hubbard began the codification of his administrative principles and policies – work that has since seen global application in both Scientology organizations and in the secular realm. After Mr. Hubbard left Washington, DC, the Founding Church continued to grow and to further increase its service to the community.

     As a result of the Founding Church's stability and consistent service over the years, tens of thousands of parishioners, by applying Scientology to themselves and those around them, are leading more ethical, responsible and happier lives and helping others to do the same.

     Mr. Hubbard's vast legacy of discovery includes the years of invaluable work he did while in Washington, DC, a legacy utilized by more than 2,000 churches, missions and groups worldwide. It includes solutions to every social problem: crime, racism, drug abuse and illiteracy. More fundamentally, the singular technology he developed provides for the complete rehabilitation of human dignity, ability and spiritual potential.
