Metropolitan Community Church

Statement of Faith

Preamble

Metropolitan Community Church is one chapter in the story of the Church, the Body of Christ. We are people on a journey, learning to live into our spirituality, while affirming our bodies, our genders and our sexualities.

We don’t all believe exactly the same things. And yet in the midst of our diversity, we build community, grounded in God’s radically inclusive love for all people.

We are part of an ongoing conversation on matters of belief and faith, shaped by scripture and the historic creeds, building on those who have come before us.

Our chapter begins when God says to us: “Come, taste, and see.”

Our Faith

“Come, taste, and see.” Jesus Christ, You invite all people to Your open table.

You make us Your people, a beloved community.

You restore the joy of our relationship with God, even in the midst of loneliness, despair, and degradation.

We are each unique and we all belong, a priesthood of all believers.

Baptised and filled with Your Holy Spirit, You empower us to be Your healing presence in a hurting world.

We expect to see Your reign on earth as it is in heaven as we work toward a world where everyone has enough, wars cease, and all creation lives in harmony.

We affirm Your charge to all of humanity to care for the land, sea, and air. Therefore, we will actively resist systems and structures that are destroying Your creation.

With all of creation we worship You—every tribe, every language, every people, every nation.

We know You by many names, Triune God, beyond comprehension, revealed to us in Jesus Christ, who invites us to the feast. Amen.
