Seattle’s First Baptist Church LGBTQ+

Welcome to Seattle First Baptist Church! Here you will find a dynamic faith community that has been a voice for social justice and progressive theology in downtown Seattle for 150 years. They welcome you to hold your Christian heritage unapologetically while diving into the deep end of progressive faith in action through their community and faith partnerships and collaborations.

For decades, Seattle First Baptist has been at the forefront of supporting, welcoming, including, and affirming LGBTQ+ community members and families. Since the 1960s when they hosted a support group for gay men through today, they have ensured that their community knows that they are both safe and beloved in this sacred home. When Washington state legalized same-sex marriage in 2012, SFBC was delighted to perform legal weddings in the sanctuary, marrying 25 couples in a big community celebration.

Today, they invite members and leadership to bring their whole selves to their spiritual life and community. SFBC seeks to include those from diverse backgrounds and does not discriminate based on gender identity and expression or sexual orientation.

A typical service will be like, gather to music and sing together, invite their community to participate in gatherings throughout the week and also to support the work of Seattle First Baptist we pray and we sing a bit more, share the message or teaching from a passage from the Bible, and then conclude with more music and a blessing.

Their services re open Sunday at 11am, parking it’s free and dress code it is not needed.

How beautiful is this ??
