At Seattle First Baptist Church, we are rooted in the best of Baptist tradition with a strong embrace of our progressive values. Here, you’ll experience traditional liturgy, hymns with the choir, a bonafide organ, and sometimes, our pastors even wear traditional robes. There’s always something happening in our community, as we extend the table of God’s communion into the world.
In our community “tradition” is something to be celebrated, because it is central to our story, our heritage, and our progressive values.
We are – at our very heart – inclusive, welcoming, and invite all to a seat at God’s enormous table.
A typical service will look something like this…
We gather to music, and sing together.
We share a time with our children before they are dismissed for their own age-tailored program.
We invite our community to participate in our other gatherings throughout the week and also to support the work of Seattle First Baptist (if you’re a guest, don’t feel obligated!), we pray and we sing a bit more.
Then one of our pastors or a guest will share a message or teaching from a passage from the Bible, and we conclude with more music and a blessing.
