who we are

MPC has one desire, to,

grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." 

To Him be glory both now and forever! Amen! (2 Peter 3:18). 

This fitting statement captures so much of the spirit of MPC. 

It is a church that endeavors to stay simple while diving deep; 

a church where all are welcome while the full counsel of God’s Word is

preached and believed. 

MPC is a local body with a global heart, 

a place where mission and family cannot be separated; 

a community of Jesus people who love both the

traditional and the contemporary, the sacred and the soiled,

the lost and the found.

a cruciform people

The Crucifix pictured here seems out of place in a Protestant Church. Hanging in our church parlor (the heart of our church building), this beautiful wooden crucifix was a parting gift from our former church pastor. He gave it because it speaks to who we are. 

While we are a people who look to the empty cross remembering the Resurrection, we are also a people who meditate on the suffering Christ. One look at this Crucifix reminds us all that God understands the pain and brokenness of this world because He lived it....and of course, died in it and calls us to follow Him and die to it.
