Our Core Values

CompassCore values are those things which we regard as vitally important in carrying out our mission as a church. Our core values are the criteria by which we measure our success. Just as a compass keeps you pointed in the right direction, our Core Values are those directional principles that help us navigate our decisions and actions as a church.

The Priority of God’s Word

The Bible is our ultimate authority and guidebook for life. Its timeless truth, presented in a loving spirit and received with an open heart, is a powerful catalyst for lasting life-change.

Outreach With the Good News of Jesus Christ
The answer to man’s basic needs is a personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ. We are committed to sharing the message of Jesus Christ in culturally relevant and compassionate ways.

A Grace Orientation
God’s grace alone—not our effort or accomplishment—is the basis for eternal life, lasting character change, and fruitful service. We seek to foster an environment that reflects the love, acceptance and forgiveness of Christ.

Prayerful Dependence on God
We are committed to seeking the direction and leading of the Holy Spirit at every level of ministry and leadership in our church, and to keeping prayer at the center of church life.

Worship Services That Honor God and Inspire People
Worship services are designed to help people meaningfully experience God’s presence through creative, Christ-honoring, and culturally relevant expressions.

Authentic, Loving Relationships
Spiritual growth happens best in the context of healthy relationships that are based on genuineness and authentic sharing. We encourage participation in small groups where believers help one another live out their faith.

Empowering People For Ministry
God never intended church to be a spectator sport. We are committed to helping believers discover their unique God-given design, develop their God-given gifts, and exercise their gifts in meaningful service to others.

    What are your views on homosuxuality?

      At MCC, we welcome everyone who is seeking to understand more about what it means to follow Jesus. Jesus actually was more interested in the religious “outsiders” of His day, and we want to be like Him.

      Persons of same-sex attraction would not be denied community acceptance solely on the basis of sexual orientation. However, we believe that an overt and sexually active homosexual lifestyle is incompatible with obedience to the will of God as revealed in the Bible.

      That said, please understand, no matter what your lifestyle, you are welcome here. We hope you will visit and experience the love and grace of God.
