Metropolitan Community Churches are on a bold mission to transform hearts, lives, and history…Just as Jesus did, we are called to: Do justice, show kindness, and live humbly with God. (Micah 6:8) – From MCC’s Statement of Vision

MCC recognizes a state of need around the world in the areas of human rights and justice. As people of faith, we have a responsibility to act on behalf of those who cannot effect change on their own. We endeavor to build bridges that liberate and unite voices of sacred defiance.

We lead from the margins. We transform.

  • Violence as commonplace
  • The need to understand pluralistic concepts of religiosities
  • Escalating fundamentalism, funding much of the violence
  • Increasing need to attend to Global Warming
  • Increase in anti-Semitism and racism
  • Racism and immigration and poverty issues
  • Refugees
  • Boundaries shifting/national boundaries changing
  • Corporations dominating the economies, leading to poverty
