You are here: About Us About MCC Churches
After a failed relationship, an attempted suicide, a reconnection with God, an unexpected prophecy, and the birth of a dream, Rev. Troy Perry was led to hold MCC’s first worship service, which was a gathering of 12 people, in his living room in Huntington Park, California on October 6, 1968.
That first worship service in a Los Angeles suburb in 1968 launched the international movement of Metropolitan Community Churches, which today has grown to 43,000 members and adherents in almost 300 congregations in 22 countries. During the past 40 years, MCC’s prophetic witness has forever changed the face of Christianity and helped to fuel the international struggle for LGBT rights and equality.
“Christianity is the revelation of God in Jesus Christ and is the religion set forth in the scriptures. Jesus Christ is foretold in the Old Testament, presented in the New Testament, and proclaimed by the Christian Church in every age and in every land.”
