Overview of Miracle City Church

Miracle City Church (MCC) exists so that people can experience the miracle of life through Jesus Christ. MCC is a Christ-centered, multicultural community driven by the Holy Spirit to be outreachfocused, community-oriented, biblically grounded, radically inclusive, prayerfully expectant, intentionally relevant, and habitually forward-thinking. We believe this is why Miracle City is experiencing uncountable growth both spiritually and numerically – a growth that is making it commonplace for the unchurched to find faith in Christ, the spiritually hungry to go deeper in Christ, and for all to regularly experience the miracle of life in Christ.

Summary of Position
