Burien Community Church
Who We Are
On this journey of faith, we all come from different backgrounds. We are made up of different ages, cultures, and denominations.
Some of us have recently found the church while others of us have spent our whole lives in the congregation. Still others have journeyed away and have come back.
We are connected on this journey of faith, seeking a deeper commitment to Jesus the Christ, our Savior, Redeemer and Friend, and to each other as the body of Christ on earth.
Our roots are American Baptist, but we are a community church. Our history contains the stories of Gregory Heights Community Church, which existed at our current location, and Columbia Baptist Church in Seattle.
The two congregations came together in the 1990's, and Burien Community Church emerged in 1996.
We are affiliated with the Evergreen Association of the American Baptist Churches, USA.

Patricia ChoueryThe church was Not Gregory Heights Community Church! It was Gregory Heights Baptist Church, the title community was added after the decision to merge the two congregations because it sounded more inviting. I was a member of Gregory Heights Baptist Church, I was the Sunday School teacher for a few years at Gregory Heights Baptist Church and was there when we changed the name. I moved away from the area so changed my membership. I like accurate history. Patti Chouery
