A Spiritual Community Open & Welcoming To Everyone
Our Spiritual Community
MCC Toronto is a different kind of faith community that welcomes people of all different backgrounds and beliefs. Our weekly Worship Services are vibrant, inclusive, and progressive, whether you attend in person or watch online.
MCC Toronto was founded as an LGBTQ2+ Christian Church but has grown into a spiritual community composed of people with many different backgrounds and beliefs, each seeking to grow spiritually and committed to uniting in the fight for and to protect Human Rights for all.
MCC Toronto has special seasonal worship services throughout the year. Keep an eye on our special events page for updates.
At MCC Toronto We Believe:
- In a loving and good God, known by many names
- God’s love is offered to everyone unconditionally
- There are many paths to God, and one of them is Christianity
- God is everywhere, with us always, gives us strength, and works through us
- Every person is created in the image of God, and is inherently good
- All life is a gift, and each life has a purpose
- Jesus is our teacher, example, saviour and friend
- In the power and effectiveness of prayer
- In eternal life
