Who we are
Our church family includes people from over 50 different nations of the world. Despite of such a cultural and ethnic diversity, we are united in our faith in Jesus Christ. Many of those who worship with us are here on a short-term basis, yet we also have many internationals and Germans who are long term residents in Munich. We are thankful and excited for the opportunity to share our faith and serve in such a diverse English-speaking community. We seek to grow in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and rejoice seeing so many people moved and shaped trough God and our fellowship.
What we believe
We believe that God has called all Christians to true biblical unity. Therefore, from our founding, we have sought to find a common ground of doctrine and truth on which all Christians can unite. MICC is not affiliated with any denomination and is open for everyone who wants to develop and sustain a personal relationship to God. As evangelical Christians we accept wholeheartedly the revelation of God given in the Old and New Testament and expressed in such historic statements of the Christian Church as the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.
Our elders in MICC function primarily as pastors of a flock, not corporate executives, CEOs, or advisers to a pastor. As keepers of sheep, biblical elders are to protect, feed, and lead the body of Christ in many spiritual and practical needs. They are preeminently men of godly character as described by Paul in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. They are responsible to maintain the vision and direction of the church and to provide for the shepherd care of the body.
Deacons in MICC serve in various capacities to carry out the ministries of the church in financial matters, budget preparation, property management, greeting and caring for members and visitors each Sunday, setting up furnishings and supplies for our Sunday school, and giving assistance for various social and teaching events in the church.
