Our History

In October 2016, Stuart and Lisa Bell were sent by multiple churches, and the North American Mission Board, to Seattle. They came with a clear vision: “A New Testament church planted in downtown Seattle, rooted in the Word, and filled with people whose lives are being transformed by the gospel.” Soon, others joined the labor of the gospel and worship of our Lord Jesus.

By God’s grace, fourteen believers covenanted together to become City Center Baptist Church on December 2, 2018. As we go, authentic friendships give opportunities to proclaim the good news of Jesus death and resurrection.
