Mission of Good Hope MCC

Good Hope Metropolitan Community Church (GHMCC) moves in the mainstream of Christianity and is founded in the interest of offering a spiritual home to all.

It is our mission to spread the love of God in an affirmative and inclusive manner to all people of our community and beyond regardless of gender, race, language, culture or sexual orientation.

It is our mission to serve God among those who are seeking and celebrating the integration of their spiritually and sexuality. Also to restore their faith and love in God and to affirm their desire to be faithful to God as Parent, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit while true to their own sexual orientation.

It is our mission to have a real and urgent place in our society and to speak out against any injustices in our community.

It is our mission to be a haven of hope where there is love, care and understanding and to encourage and instruct those who offer themselves to the teaching and philosophy accepted by this church.
