In order to retain our IRS religious exemption, all employees of The Seattle School must be Christian and confirm our Statement of Faith. The Seattle School is a multi-denominational, progressive institution. The Seattle School subscribes to the Nicene Creed and the text of Matthew 22:37-40 as the official teaching position.
- We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
- We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
- We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
- Matthew 22:37-40: Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
- Statement of Scripture: “We confess that the Scriptures, both Old and New Testament, are the word of God. We give thanks for them as a gift from God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, written down by God’s servants. We receive them, in the tradition of the Christian church, as the authoritative guide to our identity and vocation, bringing us to the fullness of life in Jesus Christ.”
