Our Beliefs

MCC’s Statement of Faith…

This is the simple declaration of what MCC believes, as stated in our By-Laws, and accepted by our General Conference:  “Christianity is the revelation of God in Jesus Christ and is the religion set forth in the scriptures. Jesus Christ is foretold in the Old Testament, presented in the New Testament, and proclaimed by the Christian Church in every age and in every land.

 

Founded in the interest of offering a church home to all who confess and believe, Metropolitan Community Churches moves in the mainstream of Christianity.

 

Our faith is based upon the principles outlined in the historic creeds: Apostles and Nicene.

 

We believe:

  • In one triune God, omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient, of one substance and of three persons: God – our Parent-Creator; Jesus Christ the only begotten son of God, God in flesh, human; and the Holy Spirit – God as our Sustainer.

  • That the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God, showing forth God to every person through the law and the prophets, and finally, completely and ultimately on earth in the being of Jesus Christ.

  • That Jesus…the Christ…historically recorded as living some 2,000 years before this writing, is God incarnate, of human birth, fully God and fully human, and that by being one with God, Jesus has demonstrated once and forever that all people are likewise Children of God, being spiritually made in God’s image.

  • That the Holy Spirit is God making known God’s love and interest to all people. The Holy Spirit is God, available to and working through all who are willing to place their welfare in God’s keeping.

  • Every person is justified by grace to God through faith in Jesus Christ.


MCC Statement of Purpose

Author: MCC General Conference
 

As God’s liberated people, we boldly....

 

Reclaim our Holy Identity
At MCC, we believe that even in our humanness, we are holy.  We are liberated from other people’s definitions of who we are.  We are made both body and spirit. We believe that our sexuality is a holy gift from God so we no longer distance our bodies from our experience with God.  We are a people who proudly participate in the communion of body and spirit.

 

 

Holy Service

Advance our call to Social Justice and Action
At MCC, we believe that Jesus led the way in acts of compassion and acts of justice.  Because we have been a people in the margins of society, we understand fully the grace that God has extended to us.  We seek to distance ourselves from exclusion and draw ourselves closer to including all those who are marginalized in any way.   We stand boldly with those who resist the structures of exclusion, as Jesus did, and work to insure freedom for all people.  In the margins, we are blessed.

 

Tell the story of God’s Transforming Grace
At MCC, we come as we are to Christ and are changed by what we find.  We experience a God with open arms, inviting all to take the sacred journey of faith and transformation. 

 

 Community

 

 

   We are growing in our faith and claim that our place in society has magnified our place in God’s family.  We are one of the many voices of God that, until now, has been lost in the margins!

 

Nurture the value of Community
At MCC, we believe our ultimate ministry is in the world.  We know that in order to prepare ourselves for radical service that changes lives, we must equip ourselves and others in the safety of a supportive community.  We strive to live out a message that rejects the idea that any are excluded from the family of God.

 

Building Bridges

 

Build bridges that Liberate and Unite
At MCC, we have experienced the soul destruction that comes from hate filled rhetoric.  In restoring our souls, we have come to find that our voices will speak the liberation that comes through peace, compassion, love, respect and grace.  As followers of Jesus, we believe ineveryone’s holy privilege to work out their own salvation.    While we are a Christian church who follows Jesus, we respect those of other faith traditions and work together with them to free all those who are oppressed by hate, disregard and violence.

 

MCC Core Values:

 

Inclusion
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 thefamily of God, and where all parts of our being are welcomed at God’s table.

 

Community
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.

 

Spiritual Transformation
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.

 

Social Action
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.
