Core Values


Reflection MCC is a place of believing and a place of belonging.

Our core values are focused on the intersections of emerging faith and radical hospitality.

 

Community

One of the most sacred altars of religious communities is the altar of the table. At the table God is lifted up in community. We are driven to offer a safe, compassionate, and welcoming community for people to worship, seek, learn, and grow. We live in the spirit of Ubuntu, a South African phrase that reminds us that we are all bound together. We achieve our best selves by sharing ourselves with others, and caring for those around us.

 

Inclusion

Because we firmly believe that all people are God’s beloved, we recognize the imperative to resist exclusion and reject social constructs that seek to marginalize and exclude others. Reflection MCC seeks to provide a community where everyone is welcome and every person willing to respect the diversity of people in our congregation is encouraged to share their faith. This means that people of all races, generations, socio-economic statuses, sexual orientations, genders and gender expressions will receive warmth, welcome and encouragement in Reflection MCC.

 

Justice

We believe Jesus led the way with a mission of justice. Our mission to do justice is exemplified by Teresa of Avila’s impetus, “Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours; yours are the eyes through which God looks to see compassion on the world; Yours are the feet with which Christ is to go about doing good; Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses humanity,” With this mission we will actively work to end systems that subjugate, degrade, devalue, or oppress individuals, groups of people or the earth.

 

Spiritual Transformation

Faith is not an end point it is a journey. Because people are diverse, we support individuals on their personal and unique journey to connect with God. We invite people to experience God and others through the life and teachings of Jesus.
