Who We Are

CLICK HERE FOR A VIDEO SHOWING WHO WE ARE

Nazarene's are an international communion of 29,000 Churches, active in over 159 world areas, believing in communicating the good news of God’s loving presence in Jesus Christ. We are optimistic about God’s ability to restore each of us, indeed all of us, to fellowship with God, each other and to renew the world in God’s image.

We Are Christian

We see ourselves as a part of the historic Church of Jesus Christ universal. We, as part of Christ’s body, came into being in the early twentieth century with an emphasis upon each person knowing and loving God and living the gospel in active worship and service to our communities.

We Are Missional

We are active in our world. Nazarenes operate compassionate ministry centers worldwide and are responsive to international recovery needs as they appear. We are part of social justice efforts through the nations and in our Washington region. We urge our people to study and live the Word of God locally and urge others to know Jesus and receive His Holy Spirit into their lives.

We Are Your Neighbor

In West Seattle, we enjoy a multi-ethnic and multi-economic community made up of Pilipino, Samoan, Native American and Euro-American ancestries. We are family and laugh and tease each other easily and argue occasionally. About twenty percent of our small congregation comes from the streets or government assisted housing, many from High Point or Tent City. We have historically been a home for Share/Wheel shelters for the homeless and feeding and worshiping with the William Booth Center in central Seattle.

In recent years we have turned our attention to our immediate neighbors, aware of the need to upgrade our facilities and park for greater use and are working a multi-year plan to that end. Our park is a center of life for individuals, dog lovers, barbecues, outdoor evening movies and worship.

Please come and worship and serve with us, if you sense our Church can be your home.
