You may have noticed our tag line, “Making it REAL for the sake of the Kingdom.” This phrase describes the spiritual vision for Middleton Congregational Church, and was derived from our church’s vision statement:
MCC VISION STATEMENT
The vision of Middleton Congregational Church is to provide, by the power of the Holy Spirit, the most relevant, engaging, accessible and loving (REAL) presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through congregational Christian worship, discipleship and service; so that the people of God might be equipped to share that Gospel with the world!
We are a non-denominational Congregational church. That is, we are not affiliated with a particular denomination but maintain our congregational heritage and polity. The Middleton Congregational Church is a welcoming community of Jesus Christ that seeks to bring people to faith in God, to disciple them in their faith so that they will grow, and to serve God’s people in need. We seek to do this both in our area and around the world through the power of the Holy Spirit.
MCC STATEMENT OF FAITH & COVENANT
Our church’s statement of faith is the Apostles’ Creed: We believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic (universal) church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
Members of MCC covenant with one another to seek and respond to the Word and will of God. We purpose to walk together in the ways of the Lord, made known or to be made known to us. We hold it to be the mission of the Church to witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all the world, while worshipping God, and striving for truth, justice and peace. As did our fathers and mothers, we depend upon the Holy Spirit to lead and empower us. We pray for the coming of the Kingdom of God, and we look with faith towards the triumph of righteousness and eternal life.
