Essential Church is a new church in Bellevue with a vision to Magnify Christ and Multiply His Kingdom in all we do.  We are a church that believes in and teaches the Bible.  We serve our community in a variety of ways, including our LOVE Bellevue ministries.  We love all people & believe that Jesus can do great things in our lives, community, church & world when we live surrendered to Him & His Word.
Essential is a place for singles, couples and families of every race and color.  We care for one another and we want everyone to know the love of Jesus.  We are a church that is committed to church planting and disciple-making.  Although we are still a small, young church, we have planted a Chinese church in Bellevue and a new church work in Issaquah. 
If you are looking for a local church family that is striving to “be the church,” we invite you to visit us at Essential.
ESSENTIAL WORSHIP SERVICE:  Sundays @ 10:45am at “The Club” (15228 Lake Hills Blvd, Bellevue.)
