The flags bordering the front represent: Mount Zion Baptist Church, United States of America, Christianity World Council of Churches, United Nations Black Liberation National Council of Churches, National Baptist Convention USA, Inc., American Baptist Convention USA, State of Washington, African Americans.
The colors in the Sanctuary are red, representing divinity and the blood of Christ, and purple, representing royalty that belong to Christians because they are children of the King.
The skylights represent the four Gospel writers of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. They also reveal the light of Jesus Christ available to every believer.
Surrounding the church are eighteen stained glass windows manufactured by Mr. Douglas Phillips of Cleveland, Ohio. “The Church and the World” depicts persons who had made significant contributions in the history of African Americans. It is an artistic collection honoring outstanding leaders from the past whose vision and deeds made it possible for us to move into the future.
Nine pairs of windows provide a prism of colorful light in the Sanctuary and chapel. The green tinged with blue symbolizes hope, growth, and eternal life with the renewing from baptism. The blue suggests faithfulness and truth in the teachings of the Bible and the Church through our renewal from baptism. Violet, representing penance, is a visual reminder of Christ’s passion and suffering. The red reminds us of God’s love for humanity and the sacrifice He made for us. The last section of windows is a rainbow of all colors representing unity in God’s people
