About Pikes Peak Metropolitan Community Church
Pikes Peak Metropolitan Community Church is a progressive community of faith, welcoming all people in the Colorado Springs area. The church is part of the larger MCC denomination founded in 1968 to meet the needs and challenges of people of faith who had been alienated by their own home churches because of their sexual orientation.
MCC has been deeply involved in issues of GLBTQI people, including the HIV/AIDS crisis, political challenges, and the rights of all people to live as God’s children and to love and marry according to their orientation. Our founder, Rev. Troy Perry, was one of the plaintiffs in the 2008 California case that made same-sex marriage legal in that state.
Our lives are a testimony to the liberating power of God’s love for us.
The blessing of God’s Spirit and the determined work of sexual minority Christians and their allies have made this tremendous growth possible, as we boldly proclaim what the Bible says and does not say about being a person of faith.
This is a place free of judgment, guilt, and shame. We believe the Bible is right when it teaches that we are to “build one another up in love.” In a world where we are too often being torn down or tearing others down, we do not need anyone else contributing to that hurt and pain—especially not our church!
We are a community of faith that has not forgotten how to work for love and justice.
