What We Believe

We believe all are welcome in the family of God, and we practice a ministry of inclusion and love. We are committed to providing an open and safe community and equipping ourselves to do the work all of us are called by God to do in this world.


We believe that lives are transformed when people are freed from the oppressive religious environment of our day, so we provide instead a message of liberation designed to help everyone experience true life through God.


We believe Christian social action can make a difference in our world. And we know that by being real people practicing real worship and real faith, each of us can play our part in making this world a better place for everyone.

UFMCC Statement of Vision

Metropolitan Community Churches 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 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 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.

  • Social Action

Working to talk less and do more, we are committed to resisting the structures that oppress people and standing with to those who suffer under the weight of oppressive systems, being guided always by our commitment to global human rights.
