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. Our hope is to more fully live into the Beloved Community, as promoted by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

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. With an active and engaged board and a small professional staff, augmented by interns, we bring faith communities and individuals together for the common good of humanity in order to know and understand each other and to eradicate the barriers and boundaries that divide and marginalize.
