MCC Vision Statement

Metropolitan Community Church is compelled
by an unfinished calling and a prophetic
destiny. We are a global movement of
spiritually and sexually diverse people who are
fully awake to God’s enduring love. Following
the example of Jesus and empowered by the
Spirit, we seek to build leading-edge church
communities that demand, proclaim, and do
justice in the world.

MCC Denomination Mission Statement

Be MCC: Transforming ourselves as we transform the world.

Metropolitan Community Church proclaims and practices a
spirituality that is anchored in the liberating Gospel of Jesus Christ
and confronts the issues of our volatile, uncertain, and complex world.

We are called to develop and equip leaders, congregations, and
ministries that foster spiritual growth, do the work of justice, act with
compassion, and integrate sexuality and spirituality.

We will do this through offering high-value training, local church
support and resourcing, cutting edge theological exploration, and
expanding partnerships.

MCC Denomination 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 conduits of faith where everyone is included in the family 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.

Justice
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.
