Who We Are

Our name, The Expedition Christian Church, reflects that we are on a journey, the journey of a lifetime. Jesus Christ is the one we follow, and it is His word and example that guide us. We seek to follow the pattern of belief and practice as revealed in God's living and active word, the Bible. Our base is the Great Northwest, Seattle.
You will always find a welcoming family here with us. Our services are cozy and simple. During our Sunday morning gathering, we enjoy Jesus and one another with music, conversation, truth and coffee.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our services are very casual, with a blend of vibrant, contemporary music and solid Biblical teaching that is relevant for today. Once a month we take time to "break bread" (or communion) to remember the Lord and His sacrifice for us.

What is the community like?
We are a very friendly church that focuses on building relationships as we encourage each other in our faith.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We would love to talk to you and answer any questions you might have. But we also have a few questions for you. These are the four most important questions every person needs to answer: 1. Will I ever find true happiness? 2. Will my life really matter? 3. What will happen when I die? 4. Is God real? Jesus said, "Everyone who looks up to me, trusting and expectant, will gain a real life, eternal life." But perhaps the other queston you might ask, is “Why bother?” To millions of Americans today, church is irrelevant. The church no longer holds any meaning or relevant answers to today's tough questions. Some may think that churches: •Don't deal with real life. •Are afraid to tackle tough questions. •Are not open to all kinds of people, or are too quick to judge other people. •Only try to make people people feel guilty without offering genuine answers. •Are only interested in getting members. •Are only interested in money. •Begin and end on Sunday mornings. We want to replace that way of thinking with a fresh, new outlook. Come and join us as we get to the heart of it all. No question is off limits!
