Japanese Baptist Church of Seattle...

...is a community of believers in Jesus Christ who join together to worship, to learn, to encourage one another, and to serve our community and our world. The Church is currently in the season of Lent, a time during which we take time to remember the journey of Christ to the cross. May this season be one that bears fruit as you recall and prepare on the road to Jesus's crucifixion then resurrection on Easter. Also please view our Special Events and Scheduled Events to see what fun events we having coming up!

Please join us for Sunday worship services in English or Japanese

We have a rich history as a church founded over 110 years ago to engage in ministry for and with immigrants from Japan. Throughout the years, we have been an important part of the Japanese-American community in the Greater Seattle area.

JBC offers worship services and other programs in both English and Japanese. Our Senior Minister, Rev. Jennifer Ikoma-Motzko, regularly preaches at the English service. Brother Joe Suzuki preaches at the Nichigo (Japanese-language) service.
 

Reflecting trends in the Greater Seattle area, our current mission is to serve those who identify themselves more broadly as or with the Asian  American peoples in the Greater Seattle area. We are pleased that our current members come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, as well as a full range of ages and generations, and we believe that all will find a warm welcome here.

JBC is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches in the USA, and we support its missions work through our giving and our personal participation. We also support other Christian missions and agencies, emphasizing those that serve our community and/or provide ministry to Asians and Asian-Americans.
