Grounded in Faith; Working for Justice

The Church Council of Greater Seattle convenes and catalyzes communities and people of faith to bring our spiritual commitments of love and reconciliation, peace and justice into the public square.

We aspire together to weave a world of justice through right and equitable relationships with one another. As people of faith, we uphold the values of mutual interdependence and accompaniment. These are rooted in our belief in the dignity of every human being as a child of God, the communion that we share through our unity with one another, and the solidarity that breaks down barriers that label some as “Other.” We are convinced, instead, that there is a “We” within in which we are all called to participate.

The Church Council is a registered nonprofit organization, operating as a 501(c)3 organization under IRS regulations.
