A community you can call “family.” A church you can call “home.”

Essential Church is a new church in Bellevue meeting at Bellevue College.  Essential Church believes and teaches the Bible. We are a place for singles, couples, and families of every race and background. We care deeply for one another and want everyone to know the love of Jesus. At Essential, we are committed to Biblical hospitality, Christ-centered ministry, expositional preaching, serving our community, making disciples, and church planting. If you are looking for a family of believers who are striving to “be the church,” we invite you to visit us.
Worship at Essential is modern, encouraging and Christ-centered. Every Sunday, we sing songs of praise to God, pray, take the Lord’s supper, hear a message from God’s Word and participate in a time of offering. After the service, stick around for a free lunch and meet some new friends.



Life is better when we live it in community.  Don’t settle for superficial acquaintances, go deeper and connect with others.



Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, there is always room to grow. Learn how you can take your next step at Essential.



Service is the true definition of greatness.  Leverage your gifts, talents and time to make an impact in the lives of others.

Warren, Leah, Krista and Micah


“We are not a perfect family.”

In our house we mess up, say we are sorry, forgive one another and keep on loving. That is what we believe families do. Why should the church be any different?
If you’re looking for a perfect church, you’ll not find that at Essential. BUT if you want a church that values authenticity over wearing masks, I invite you to join us. We like to practice bottomless grace. We worship together, we have fun and see the beauty in all of the brokenness.
