About this MCC church: On January 19, 1987, a small group of faithful people gathered at DJ’s Pub to worship as gay and lesbian Christians. Our founding members, fueled by the Holy Spirit and the witness of the Gospel of Christ, yearned for a place to call their church home, and for an LGBT-identified person in Wichita Falls, that was not a simple task. Our newly-founded church opened its doors to all who would come and all who needed sanctuary. Later that year, this new faith community officially affiliated with the denomination of Metropolitan Community Churches.
Through the years, we have evolved along with the denomination to understand that our ministry is that of spreading the gospel of God’s all-inclusive love. We began with a primary ministry to provide a safe church sanctuary for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people who have long been excluded from the church. Today, we recognize that more people than we/they have been excluded, and our church is passionate about finding a place for all who would but follow Christ’s example. There is MUCH healing to do in this world!
During our time as a church, we have welcomed hundreds who longed for the gospel of God’s all-inclusive love. We have provided opportunities to connect with a spiritually-like-minded community intent on reaching out to the margins; following Christ’s example. We believe that God loves all of creation and, therefore, all people.
Our congregation strives to welcome everyone and anyone who comes to us for spiritual nourishment and purpose. When newcomers first arrive, we are cheerful in offering food for the spirit and heart. Soon in time, we hope you will join us by becoming one who offers that nourishment to others!
Wichita Falls MCC is a Christian community that celebrates God’s creative diversity. We make a point to include people of all faith backgrounds, ages, races, ethnicities, economies, sexual orientations and gender identities.
