Go! Love and Lead People to Jesus Christ
teaching them to live as His devoted followers
This drives everything we do from our worship services, adult and children's programs, and our outreach to the local community and world. It is our deep hope that each person would become life-long disciples of Jesus who make more disciples of Jesus.
Northwest was first established in 1890 as First Swedish Baptist Church by 10 local Swedish families who were seeking a Gospel presence and to reach out to new Swedish immigrants to the area. A couple decades later as the church grew and the next generations began speaking English the church became Champion Street Baptist Church. In 1960 the church moved from its downtown location to it's current spot on Northwest Ave and became Northwest Baptist Church.
We are affiliated with Converge Worldwide, formerly known as the Baptist General Conference. Our local affiliate is called Converge Northwest (Columbia Baptist Conference) comprising nearly 80 churches in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. We are a family church valuing people from all ages and backgrounds.
