Our History - Seattle Baptist Church
In March of 1990, David and Nancy Cox, and their three children, boarded an airplane in Birmingham, Alabama and journeyed to Seattle, Washington to establish a Bible-believing, independent Baptist Church. They did not know anyone in the state nor had any families waiting on their arrival, but they had a great desire to evangelize an unchurched area and edify the people that they would win to Christ. The church was started by house to house door-knocking and witnessing and has been sustained through the years with that same continuing emphasis. The first Sunday morning service for Seattle Baptist Church was held in Mountlake Terrace Elementary School with 65 in attendance, 17 salvation decisions, and 9 rededicating their lives to Christ.
In the year 2000, God blessed Seattle Baptist Church with their present site in the city of Edmonds. Three years later, the church was able to purchase a 10,000 sq. ft. Educational building and more parking to help facilitate the ministries. The church now enjoys adequate facilities for its Sunday School classes, church services, and Christian School ministry.
Seattle Baptist Church held their services in the Mountlake Terrace Elementary School and rented two other properties to facilitate the ministry during the first six years. During this time period they established the Sunday School, Sunday morning and evening services, and the midweek service. In 1996, the church moved 16 blocks south to rent the Snohomish County Christian High School.
Today, Seattle Baptist Church is a thriving, growing, exciting church to be a part of. We are grateful for a past that has been blessed by God in amazing ways, but we also have a great vision for the future of what can be accomplished for the Lord through our church.
