Know any friends or family with small children who would like to join us for worship? Let them know that JBC’s Nursery is open! Our Nursery staff are two very capable and competent childcare providers that have a heart for children. Nursery opens every Sunday morning at 9:30 AM and goes until parents can pick up their children following worship service. 

Please join us for Sunday worship services in English or Japanese

We have a rich history as a church founded over 110 years ago to engage in ministry for and with immigrants from Japan. Throughout the years, we have been an important part of the Japanese-American community in the Greater Seattle area.

JBC offers worship services and other programs in both English and Japanese. While JBC is searching for a Senior Minister, our Interim Minister, Rev. Dr. Robert Reid, regularly preaches at the English service. A Church Consultant preaches at the Nichigo (Japanese-language) service. 

Reflecting trends in the Greater Seattle area, our current mission is to serve those who identify themselves more broadly as or with the Asian  American peoples in the Greater Seattle area. We are pleased that our current members come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, as well as a full range of ages and generations, and we believe that all will find a warm welcome here.

JBC is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches in the USA, and we support its missions work through our giving and our personal participation. We also support other Christian missions and agencies, emphasizing those that serve our community and/or provide ministry to Asians and Asian-Americans.
