To GATHER the people, TURN hearts and minds toward God, LOVE others with no strings attached, and MULTIPLY our faith in the world in which we live.
Christians throughout the ages have held a wide variety of beliefs, expressed theology, and approaches to church. Though we are a church community that represents many different theological leanings and roots, we hold firmly that Christ is at the center of all things (Colossians 1.15+). We do not know the author of the following, but it defines our desire theologically: In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.

We believe the following are monumental moments as a follower of Jesus
Christian baptism is a symbolic act that represents the new life one has found in following Jesus. Baptism is for believers who have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We baptize by immersion. Baptism symbolizes the washing away of our sin and old way of life and new birth into a life with Christ. It represents the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new believer. It is an outward sign of an inward transformation. We often refer to baptism as ‘going public’ with your faith in Christ.
The Bible recounts a story of Jesus’ final night with His disciples. He was celebrating the Passover meal with them. During the meal, He took a loaf of bread and told them that the bread represented His body, which would be broken for them. He then took a cup of wine and told them that the wine represented His blood, which would be poured out for the forgiveness of sins. After eating and drinking together, Jesus instructed them to practice this regularly – as a way of remembering the sacrifice that He was making and to commit themselves to a life of sacrifice. Communion is a time of remembering the sacrifice of Christ and committing ourselves to sacrifice for others. The bread and the juice are symbolic reminders of the body and blood of Jesus.
Child dedication at MMCCaz is a statement of thanksgiving and commitment made by parents. It is a recognition that children are a gift from God – and with that gift comes great responsibility. Parents make a commitment before the church community, to raise their children to know God’s love and grace and to follow Jesus. The church community commits to come alongside parents, providing a loving, encouraging, teaching environment for children.
We are a Christ-centered church. We are working to GATHER the people, TURN hearts and minds toward God, LOVE others with no strings attached, and MULTIPLY our impact beyond our walls.
