Whether you live in Montrose or are simply visiting from out of town, state, or country, we are glad you stopped in.
Nestled on the western slope of Colorado, in the city of Montrose, MCC is a body of believers who are dedicated to being disciples of Jesus. We are ones who are determined to know Jesus and to become like Him in every way.
As you continue reading below, you will learn more about our beliefs, mission, and values.
Like many other Christian churches, the mission of MCC is derived from some of Christ's own words.
Matthew 28:18-20 NIV - "Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'"
After raising Himself from the dead and just before He ascended into heaven, Jesus entrusted the task of discipleship to His own disciples. And from that point in history on, those who follow and serve Jesus have diligently set about doing the work He commissioned them to do.
Here at MCC our mission is the same, and we describe it with a simple statement:
Making and Maturing Disciples of Jesus for the Glory of God
Like those who have gone before us, our desire is to be men and women who are committed followers/students of Jesus who are continuously learning from and applying the teaching and example of Jesus to every aspect of our lives. We seek to be disciples of Jesus, and we wish to help those around us be His disciples as well.
While our mission to make and mature disciples of Jesus is very much like that our other Christian churches, our approach to carrying out this task is uniquely different largely because God has made us uniquely different. He has instilled within us certain values that are unique to who we are. You might say that they are a part of our "DNA". Please follow the links for each value to learn more about them and to find some resources to help you live them.
