Metropolitan Community Churches are on a bold mission to transform hearts, lives, and history. We are a movement that faithfully proclaims God’s inclusive love for all people and proudly bears witness to the holy integration of spirituality and sexuality. Just as Jesus did, we are called to:
- Do justice, show kindness, and live humbly with God. (Micah 6:8)
- Explore life’s questions with open hearts and minds.
- Raise our voices in sacred defiance against religious (and political or systemic) exclusion.
- Reach out to those with no hope.
- Lift up new generations of remarkable, far-reaching spiritual activists.
MCC Statement of Direction
MCC has staked its claim. As one of the world’s emerging churches, MCC is proclaiming a spirituality that is liberating and sufficiently profound to address the issues of our chaotic and complicated world. We live out our belief that we are blessed and we are offering multiple ways for people to access our message of liberation and inclusion. Through church planting, church revitalization, alliances, social media, and acts of compassion and justice, MCC will expand our reach substantially over the next few years. MCC will become a name known to an increasing number of people as a place where all are welcomed and our service to those who are excluded is a primary focus of our ministry. We will be leaders in the world on union of spirituality by articulating our message and spreading it effectively.
MCC Core Values
Love is our greatest moral value and resisting exclusion is a primary focus of our ministry. We want to continue to be the conduits of a faith where everyone is included in the family of God and where all parts of our being are welcomed at God’s table.
Offering a safe and open community for people to worship learn and grow in their faith is our deep desire. We are committed to equipping ourselves and each other to do the work that God has called us to do in the world.
Providing a message of liberation from the oppressive religious environment of our day or to those experiencing God for the first time is what guides our ministry. We believe that when people are invited to experience God through the life and ministry of Christ, lives will be transformed.
Working to talk less and do more, we are committed to resisting the structures that oppress people and standing with those who suffer under the weight of oppressive systems, being guided always by our commitment to global human rights.
