Who We Are

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.


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.
