Following the example of Jesus, New Creation MCC is a living model of acceptance and welcome, built on faith instead of fear; hope instead of judgment, love instead of rejection.
MCC Core Values
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.
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.
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.
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.
Council of Elders, Weekly Reflection
God in Heaven, creator of all things.
I am a child of the Dreamtime and I pray you hear my words.
For many millennia we held a covenant with you to be caretakers of the land, but times have changed and we can no longer care for the land as before and now pray for your help.
With progress, comes change, and your creation is hurting. The air, water and rivers are becoming fouled with the pollution, the ice caps are melting and many animals have become extinct.
Drought, and floods, and the rivers can no longer sustain food to feed our people and the seas are becoming polluted.
Jesus, Son of the Creator, I pray that you will place into the minds of the world the need to heal our lands and seas and work with all First Nations peoples to heal the land. To live with each other in peace, respect, and love.
Gracious Lord, I live with hope and give thanks to the God.
