Bible Baptist Church of Oak Harbor is located on beautiful Whidbey Island in the Northwest corner of Washington State. Its facilities are located three miles south of Oak Harbor (six miles north of Coupeville) on State Route 20 near Hastie Lake. The Church parking lot is entered from Harns Road.
Officially the longest island in the continental United States, Whidbey Island sits nestled among the islands of Puget Sound with a spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains to the SW, and Mount Baker and the Cascades to the NE and east. It is reached from the north end by bridges across the breath-taking Deception Pass, and from the south end by the ClintonMukilteo ferry.
As the crow flies (on a straight line), Oak Harbor is located about 50 miles NNW of Seattle (95 road miles, or 1¾ hours to drive), and about 50 miles south of the USCanada border (75 road miles, or 1½ hours to drive). To the northwest lie the San Juan Islands, a very popular tourist area and favorite site for Orcas (killer whale) watching. Thirty-five miles to the west is the southern tip of Vancouver Island, British Columbia and its capital city, Victoria.
