About This Organization

Started in 1951, Northwest Bible Church is a healthy, vibrant church presently focused on having conversations about Jesus ‘with our neighbors and co-workers, along with others in our communities and around the world’.

Woven into the fabric, from its beginning, Northwest Bible began what they call “Faith Promise,” committing each year to give to missions; but the mission is at home as well, they are growing and becoming more invitational, maintaining the deep relationships with those long-faithful in the church.
