Metropolitan Community Churches and the Charter for Compassion

Statement of Alignment

Metropolitan Community Church is compelled by an unfinished calling and a prophetic destiny. We are a global movement of spiritually and sexually diverse people who are fully awake to God’s enduring love. Following the example of Jesus and empowered by the Spirit, we seek to build leading-edge church communities that demand, proclaim, and do justice in the world.

We agree with the Charter for Compassion that “all human beings—not just those with whom we share a community—urgently need our compassion, and the conviction that we must act to provide such compassion wherever there is suffering.” In local communities around the world, people of other faiths and no faith are often found working alongside us feeding the hungry, alleviating suffering, and working for justice.

We are motivated by Love – Love of the Divine, Love for all our Neighbors, and Love for Self.

Our Core Values reflect our commitments:

  • Inclusion
    Love is our greatest moral value and resisting exclusion is a primary focus of our ministry. We want to continue to be conduits of 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.
  • Justice
    Working to talk less and do more, we are committed to resisting the structures that oppress people and standing with those who suffer under the weight of oppressive systems, being guided always by our commitment to Global Human Rights.

As a spiritual organization well rooted in the LGBTQ+ community, yet welcoming all, we believe we have contributions to make, in particular to the LGBTQ+ Initiative of the Charter for Compassion.
