Description

Since its founding in 1968, MCC has been at the vanguard of civil and human rights movements by addressing important issues such as racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism, and other forms of oppression. MCC has been on the forefront in the struggle towards marriage equality in the US and other countries worldwide and continues to be a powerful voice in the LGBT equality movement.

Metropolitan Community Churches, with churches and ministries in over 40 countries, are on a bold mission to transform hearts, lives & history. We are a movement that faithfully proclaims God's inclusive love for all people & proudly bears witness to the holy integration of spirituality & 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 has staked its claim. As one of the world's emerging churches, we are 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 in the margins 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, the internet, and our work in acts of compassion and justice, we 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 about the union of spirituality and sexuality by articulating our message and spreading it effectively.
