Why Choose Us?

Why would you choose Seattle Open Door Church to attend compared to other churches in Burien or the Puget Sound area of Seattle? That is a fair question and an important question.

We could tell you that it is because we are the best church in the area, but that would just be hype and not accurate. We certainly realize that there are many churches that are better than Seattle Open Door Church.

We could tell you that you should attend Seattle Open Door Church because of all the programs we offer you and your family. But again that would be hype and not accurate. As a smaller church with limited staff we are not able to offer all the programs we would like to offer. BUT as others join us we can make that happen.

We could tell you that we have the greatest members out of any other church. Once more, that would just be hype and not accurate. The truth is some of our members have problems, just like you and me. Seattle Open Door Church is made up of all kinds of people who are learning how to be Christ-like.

So why attend Seattle Open Door Church?

    At Seattle Open Door Church you can come as who you are. It is not our job to change you. Our responsibility is to point you to Jesus and to create an environment where the Holy Spirit is able to work in your life and bring the changes that need to take place in your life.

  • Spiritual Seekers are Welcomed
    We believe that church should not be a place only for Christians. Church should be a place for anyone who is a spiritual seeker on a journey to find or understand God. No one is born a Christian. All of us start out without Christ. So feel free to come as you are. Even if you have plenty of 'baggage', questions, doubts. We will love you for who you are and help you to get where you want to be.

  • We Love God, Love People, Love Life
    We believe if we love God we will love people. If we love God and people we will love life. If we love life, we will love God and people. Full circle. We will do our best to create an environment for you to learn how to Love God, Love People, Love Life.

  • Sound Doctrine
    Seattle Open Door Church believes that Scripture is inspired and infallible. Thus we believe in teaching all the principles found in Scripture. Sorry, if you are looking for a politically correct church, you will not be happy here at Seattle Open Door Church. Rather than be politically correct we rather be biblically correct.

    We are not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for is the power of salvation. We believe Jesus is the only way to heaven and we do our best to help individuals to come into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.

Seattle Open Door Church is looking for a Worship Leader for our church. We are looking for someone who is musically talented that can either lead worship via guitar or keyboard.

We are wanting someone who is anointed and creative. Someone who lives and breaths worship and desires to help others to grasp the concept of intimate worship of God Almighty

We are looking for someone who is beyond reproach in character. Sadly, in today's Christian culture we need to explain this in more detail. Someone who is not homosexual, not committing fornication, someone who does not smoke, do drugs, or drinks alcohol. Someone who reflects godly behavior and character.

Some of the responsibilities of the worship leader would be rehearsals, song selection. administration, recruit musicians, develop musicians, build team dynamics, special services.

We are looking for someone who has the ability to build a worship team. Currently we only have a bass player, guitar player, and a singer.

Our current worship is via contemporary worship videos. We are looking for someone who can sing contemporary songs and hymns.

We have a very good sound system, grand piano, keyboard, and good drum set. We use MediaShout 6 and have two LCD projectors.

Currently we are only able to pay a small stipend. As the church grows we are more than willing to pay a salary.

If you are interested in the position, contact Pastor Richard Dover, 206-396-1995 or send email.
