About Us

Wenatchee Brethren Baptist Church's mission statement is: Our joyful response to God's love and grace in Jesus Christ is to be faithful servants to one another and the whole world. We carry out this mission through worship, prayer, fellowship, Bible study, and service. 

Our worship includes a blend of contemporary songs and traditional hymns, sharing of joys and concerns, prayer, and biblical preaching. There are Sunday School classes for adults and children. We encourage the spiritual growth of the church, and the integration of new members, through "Grace and Growth" small groups. 

Service is Central to our Faith

WBBC members organized the Mustard Seed Neighborhood Center (a childcare center for low-income families), and Garden Terrace (apartments for low-income seniors). We are one of the locations for Serve Wenatchee Valley's Food Bank. WBBC has been active in many other ministries and service organizations in the Wenatchee Valley and members have been involved in service nationally and internationally. 

Our Affiliation

Wenatchee Brethren Baptist Church gets its name from the two national churches with which we are affiliated - The Church of the Brethren and the American Baptist Churches. Wenatchee Church of the Brethren was organized in the early 1920s. The current building was completed in 1929. In 1970, Immanuel Baptist Church (an American Baptist congregation) merged with the church to form Wenatchee Brethren Baptist United. 

The Church of the Brethren has roots in an 18th century Christian renewal movement. Brethren have emphasized discipleship (following Jesus) instead of doctrine. The Bible is the guide for faith and practice. The Church of the Brethren is one of the historic peace churches. The Brethren seek "to continue the work of Jesus Christ peacefully, simply, and together."

American Baptist Churches USA has roots in a 17th century movement which emphasized Jesus as Lord and Savior, believers' baptism, and the authority of the Bible to guide faith and practice. Baptists believe that each Christian has the ability to interpret Scripture and respond to God's call through the Holy Spirit. 

A Shared Facility

We share our spacious building with another congregation, Trinity Church, and Americorp; a national organization that supports volunteers in local communities.
