ABOUT ESSENTIAL CHURCH
Essential Church is a new church in Bellevue with a great vision to:
“MAGNIFY CHRIST AND MULTIPLY HIS KINGDOM” in the Pacific Northwest through:
- Christ-centered, Biblical worship, community and service.
- Living and sharing the Gospel in authentic and relevant ways.
- A simple method for multiplying disciples, leaders and churches.
Essential Church is a group of followers of Christ who strive to embody these values:
- Passionate for Jesus– Everything we do will overflow out of a loving, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Authentic Relationships– Essential is a place for imperfect people to be transformed into the likeness of Christ through open and honest relationships.
- Compassion for People– We care about what God cares about… People.
- Exciting– Following Christ is not boring, so should church be?
- Simple– We value a simple process of developing disciples over complicated programs.
- Reproducible– Part of being a disciple means discipling others. We desire to make the process of multiplying disciples, leaders and churches as reproducible as possible.
How we live out our vision and values at Essential:
CHURCH PLANTING IN GREATER SEATTLE:
Essential Church is committed to church planting in Seattle. We have partnered with Seattle Church Planting, the Pillar Network and the North American Mission Board to create a larger impact in the Northwest for the sake of the Gospel. Essential Church is currently in the process of working with other churches and ministries throughout the Northwest to plant an English speaking church in Issaquah and another English speaking church in downtown Seattle. We are also helping to plant a Chinese speaking church in Bellevue. We are prayerfully seeking a potential church planter to help us with a church plant among the Mixtec people in Othello, WA. Our prayer is that the Lord would use us to plant 5 or more churches over the next 10 years.
