Every Nation Church is a diverse and dynamic community with people of all ages and backgrounds who have been deeply impacted by the Love of God and the Truth found in Jesus Christ. No matter who you are or where you’ve been, we aim to be an authentic Christian community that will accept you right where you are, while encouraging you to become the person God created you to be. We believe that life is all about relationships with purpose. So we are a committed to helping each other grow in Love for God, One Another, and the World around us. We hope you’ll join us on the journey!
God is Love. He is the very reason why we exist, and the most wonderful Being we could ever know. We long for every person to experience God’s Love through a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We can encounter Him & remain vitally connected to Him through worship, prayer, meditation & study of His Word (the Bible), preaching, communion, participation in community and many other means. We are therefore committed to pursuing Him together and helping one another grow in relationship with Him.
God is Relational. Relationships are both the means and ends of God’s purposes on the earth. We long for every person to enjoy the fulfillment and security that comes from being loved and accepted right where they are. We encourage participation in our Sunday Gatherings, Community Groups, as well as other informal get-togethers where people can “do life” together, and cultivate meaningful friendships.
God is a God of Restoration. We believe that God has given each person a unique purpose in this world and that He desires for our lives to make a positive impact. We encourage each other to orient our lives around what is most important: loving & serving others, making wrong things right, using our gifts and talents for the good of others, and in doing so, seeing local and global transformation take place. Jesus said to “go make disciples”, so whether it is walking across the room, or flying across the globe, we long to be on mission with God, proclaiming the Good News of Jesus through word and deed, making the world a better place by meeting people’s needs: spiritually, relationally, and materially.
Every Nation Church Seattle began in 2001 when some friends from Corvallis, Oregon moved to Seattle to start a brand new church. We began as an outreach to the local colleges & university campuses. As we grew, we moved into different parts of the city and began reaching out to people in our communities.
What started out as a few friends seeking God together in a living room has now turned into a community church made up of people from all over the greater Seattle area. Since that first Sunday we have met in community centers, other church buildings, and now we currently meet in a movie theater!
Where we meet, however, is not nearly as important as why we meet. We don’t believe that the church is a building — rather, we believe people make up the church. The church is not merely an organization, but is first and foremost a family — a living, dynamic community of believers united in Jesus. We invite you to learn more about the Gospel and what it means to know God’s love for you. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey — whether you are looking into the Christian faith for the first time, or whether you have walked closely with God for decades — we invite you to be our guest at our Sunday service.
