Who We Are
Emerald City Bible Fellowship is a multi-racial congregation located in Rainier Valley, Seattle’s most ethnically diverse community. We began as a bible study in 1987, started meeting on Sunday mornings in 1990 but officially incorporated in 1993. ECBF is developed around the belief that every member is a minister. Our deepest desire is that those associated with our congregation will:
Become more like Jesus Christ through regular obedience in prayer, worship, and study of God’s word
2 Peter 1:3-9
Love each other
Support our church family in all areas of life through intentional relationship
John 13:34-35; 1 John 3:16-18
Love and serve the world
Share the good news of Jesus Christ through words and actions
John 3:16-1; Matthew 9:35-38
The Emerald City Bible Fellowship church family is deeply committed to that which is important to Jesus Christ. Jesus’ words about loving God, loving people (Matthew 22:37-39) and making disciples (Matthew 28:19-20) form the foundation of the vision we possess. Our aim is to be a praying and worshipping community of believers whose faith in Jesus Christ is evident to all we encounter. And that our faith in Jesus and obedience to the scriptures will lead others to experience authentic life change as well.
Emerald City Bible Fellowship makes every attempt at maintaining a balance between preaching (telling) and practicing (doing) the gospel. Our hope is that as we pro-actively share the “good news” of the gospel and engage in the “good works” of the gospel that individuals, families and our community will find wholeness for their lives through Jesus Christ.
Emerald City Bible Fellowship is marked by several notable characteristics and emphases including faith, racial diversity, spiritual worship, giving, intercession, community outreach, international missions and a healthy balance between family and ministry.
