Connecting our downtown community with our life-changing God

Who Are We?

Monroe Community Church is an emerging and growing Christian church located in the Monroe North neighborhood in downtown Grand Rapids MI.  MCC has its roots in the Reformed/Presbyterian tradition of Christianity and is part of the Christian Reformed Church denomination.  When you come to MCC you will both find and meet a diverse group of people.



What Do We Believe?

At Monroe Community Church...

We believe in God the Father who created the world and governs all things: that

He is our faithful Father.  We believe God is actively and continually at work in us and around us.

We believe in God the Son who came to this earth as Jesus Christ, died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins, and rose from the dead to give us new life.

We believe in God the Holy Spirit who lives in believers and continually nurtures us so that we may grow in Christ-likeness.  The Spirit also empowers us so that we may be Jesus' witnesses in the world.

We believe that through faith in Jesus Christ, we receive forgiveness for everything about us that separates us from a holy God.   In that forgiveness, we will one day be raised from the dead, and share the joy of eternity spent with God.

These beliefs are summarized for us in the historic creeds and confessions of the Christian church.  To learn more about these, click on the links below:
