The purpose of the church is to glorify God! This happens when believers covenant together around the King, His Word, and His mission and seek to use their gifts to edify and serve one another. The church is God's chosen context for His people using their God-given gifts to build one another up toward maturity in Christ. When the church functions the way it is supposed to, Christ is on display for the watching world to see. Let us pray that MCC would be a church that exists for the glory of God and the salvation of the nations as we incarnate the living Christ together in mutual love and service before the watching world.
