Sanctuary Church Seattle

We are a grace centered community seeking to serve the city socially, spiritually and culturally.

Meeting Sundays 10:30AM at Garfield Community Center

At our core we are a community driven by a common conviction and story. What is that story?

The world is not what it ought to be. The problem is my substituting God with myself, resulting in disharmony and disintegration. High ethical standards, good intentions, profound intellectual insights, and unleashed creativity are not enough to heal our world. We need to be rescued. God did so by substituting Man with Himself in the person of Jesus thereby restoring the cosmic relationship between Creation and its Creator on the basis of His work and record – not ours. Christ died the death we deserved. Christ earned the acceptance that we could never earn. You can say that we are more sinful than we can dare to imagine and yet through Christ we are more loved and accepted than we can dare hope for.

This classic Christian message called “the Gospel,” is what Sanctuary attempts to spread – first through ourselves, and then through the city – in word, deed, and community. When we trust it – it begins to transform us from the inside out.

We invite you to come and join us one of these Sundays. This website can explain to you what we are, but it can’t tell you who we are. So come check us out. We meet at an old Carmelite monastery. There's parking in the back. The teaching is more discussion-based than lecture. We try to keep it real, honest and our hearts and minds open.

Why We Still Need Punk Rock?

We live in a system of superiority/inferiority, keeping us from living with and loving those who are different from us. Jesus, who has infinite superiority, became infinitely inferior, rendering the whole system useless. (video 2 min)

Everything is not enough - even for Creator-King

In an act of cosmic arrogance Adam and Eve committed spiritual treason in the Garden. Having everything was apparently not enough. They wanted to trade places with God. Which brings us to what I think is the greatest mystery of the Christian faith.... Apparently, having everything wasn't enough for the Creator-King either. (5:29 min)

On Good Friday God looked down at us with all of our brokenness and pathologies and problems, and decided to enter into a position in which he could say, “yeah, me too." He did this, in order to put us in a position where we can look up at the Risen One in all of his glory and splendor and say, "yeah, me too."

What if God chooses to lose?

Life strategies that promise peace (whether it’s in your relationships with family, friends, or in your neighborhood, or peace within your own self).... peace strategies based on power and might, are scams that replaces Jesus with a sort of Leviathan that turns upon us and destroys us. ~ Pastor Ed

What is Jesus' Mission? - Part 2

sanctuaryseattle.org

After looking at the Mission of Jesus summarized in Psalm 72, (righteous reign, reconciling communities, ruling forever), we look to Mark 1:14-18 to hear the words of the King that mark all of his ministry—that the Good News of God has come, the Gospel, and we must then repent, believe and follow Jesus in response to this good news. But what does the Good news truly mean for us today? Taking our cues from Jesus’ message that hearken back to Isaiah 40, we understand that the Gospel is good news that we can finally come back home. Behind every desire we have is a desire for love, to be understood, to have life—that life is ultimately bound up with our Creator and Redeemer who gave of Himself on the Cross to make orphans sons and daughters, and to bring prodigals back home. In response to His work to bring us home, “Back to Eden”, we must turn from our ways, believing in His word and follow Him as the disciples did.

What is Jesus' Mission? - Part 1

sanctuaryseattle.org

We are often focused on praying for ourselves and others, as is good and right as followers of Jesus. Moreover, we are sometimes reminded that Jesus is in Heaven, praying for us before the throne of God. But how often do we take the time to pray for Jesus, our King? Psalm 72 is a “royal psalm” that the people of God would sing to coronate the enthronement of the King of Israel. We believe that Jesus is the Last Son of David, who is our Compassionate King who hears the cry of the needy, broken and marginalized, (Ps. 72:12-14); and because he is good and compassionate we must pray for him to reign in our hearts, communities and the world—that he reign in justice, ruling and reconciling communities, and unto the end of time. Praying for Jesus to reign shapes our hearts to desire what God desires especially when adversity sets in and we need the justice, peace and hope.
