OUR MISSION: ENGAGING PEOPLE TO LIVE AND SERVE LIKE JESUS.
Our mission as a church is rooted in Christ's words found in Matthew 4:19. One day Jesus called his disciples by saying, "Come follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." It's here where Christ called potential followers to engage with him by following him, to live for him by obeying him, and to serve others by modeling him. That's why our mission as a church is to engage people to live and serve like Jesus. We believe that as we help people engage, live and serve, they will not only live life to its fullest, they will help others to do the same.
Through intentional hospitality, we invite people into our community, identify their needs and connect them with Jesus to take the next steps in their spiritual journey.
Through understanding and obedience to God and the scriptures we seek daily to be transformed by Jesus as we follow Him together.
Through selfless action we bless people by word and deed so lives are transformed by Christ.
80% of people who live within a three mile radius of our church are families. While one third of those families are Christians, two thirds either have limited interest in God or no interest at all. Our mission field is all around us! That's why our vision is this: MCC is an authentic community where families are being transformed and equipped by the Holy Spirit to draw those they encounter into a relationship with Jesus Christ.
If you are single, single and desire to one day get married, are a couple and one day desire to have children, or are a family with children either living at home or now having children of their own, MCC is for you. We invite you to come join us and help make our vision a reality!
These values represent the core principles that shape the culture and drive the ministry of MCC. They embody our identity and guide our activity as a local expression of the Body of Christ. In short, the following five convictions reflect the heart of our church ministry. From a theological and practical perspective, we see a natural progression from one value to another as listed below.
DEEPENING OUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST
Encouraging every individual to own their spiritual growth by studying and reflecting on scripture, developing an active prayer life and serving others. (Hebrews 5:11-6:3; 2 Timothy 3:14-17; Luke 11:1-4)
CREATING SPIRIT DRIVEN COMMUNITY
Living out the truth that all believers are one in Christ by encouraging people to become involved in authentic, selfless, accountability relationships with each other so that the word will see Christ’s love. (John 17:22-23; Romans 12:5; Hebrews 10:24-25; John 13:35)
LIVING OUT CHRIST'S MISSION
Centering every aspect of our individual and corporate lives on the truth that we are specifically sent by Christ and empowered by His Holy Spirit to reach and save the lost in order to make disciples. (Matthew 28:18-20; John 20:21; Acts 1:8)
EQUIPPING PARENTS TO LEAD
Training and encouraging parents to understand and fulfill their leadership role in building families, in which love for Christ and obedience to God's Word are their core values. (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Ephesians 6:4; Colossians 3:18-21)
TEACHING THE NEXT GENERATION SUSTAINABLE FAITH
Complementing the role of parents by providing children and students opportunities and experiences to develop a permanent faith that is an unshakeable witness, grounded in God's Word as their ultimate authority in all matters. (Psalm 1:1-3; 1 Timothy 4:3-5; James 1:12)
