Welcome to the Northwest


Growing Healthy, Mission-Focused Churches That Multiply Disciples

Learn More

Welcome to the American Baptist Churches of the Northwest website. We are an association of 150+ churches scattered across Washington, Idaho, Montana and Utah with one in Nevada and two in California. We believe that Jesus is the head of his Body and as its Lord His mission is to "seek and save that which was lost". Jesus uses the Church to accomplish His mission in the world. Churches that are healthy and mission-focused are the most successful in fulfilling Christ's mission. Our mission is to resource pastors and churches for this purpose. 

Our churches are serving their communities in a myriad of ways. Pastors are growing as leaders. Churches are being transformed. New churches are being planted. Dying churches are being restarted with vitality and renewed mission. Our connection with one another makes us stronger. Most importantly these efforts are bearing fruit as new believers come to Christ and are discipled. Let us know how we can help you connect and find the resources that you need.

Equipping Pastors

Equipping Pastors


Developing great leaders is a critical strategy for reproducing disciples.

We are committed to leadership development. Our network of Leadership Learning Communities helps pastors become life-long learners who in turn develop leaders in their local congregations. Through peer learning and coaching we are creating a leadership development culture where pastors develop their skills and in turn lead their churches to grow and maximize their effectiveness.

Resourcing Churches

Resourcing Churches


Churches can connect and network with other churches, find encouragement, and receiving excellent training and resources at events held throughout the Region.

The Region consists of American Baptist Churches in association and thus the ministries of the Region are an extension of the missional work of local churches.  We believe that churches serving one another is a biblical principle.  Interdependent churches that mutually encourage, serve and challenge each other are healthier than independent churches. To that end a major portion of the Region’s ministry consists of resourcing our churches as they strive toward spiritual health, outward focus and commitment to Jesus Christ.
