We are a community of faith united in exploring what it means to follow the way of Jesus Christ, to be a people of God and to love and care for our neighbors. As a Church we will know no circles of exclusion, no boundaries we will not cross and no loyalties above those which we owe to God.
Founded in 1869, the founders of our church, the Hanford and Holgate families, were among the very first pioneer settlers to Puget Sound. Our church is one of the oldest in Seattle. We are an American Baptist Church USA, a member of the Evergreen Baptist Association of the Northwest and a Welcoming and Affirming congregation.
