Metropolitan Community Church was the first church in the nation to perform same-sex holy unions more than forty years ago.
Today we perform same-sex and opposite-sex wedding ceremonies.
If you are interested in having your commitment blessed at MCC Albuquerque or at another location of your choosing, our Pastor would be happy to speak with you. Relationships are important, and we deeply value the desire of many to acknowledge their relationship before God, family, and friends. Please feel free to contact us via phone any time during normal business hours to discuss how we might help you plan your special day!
Please call the office at 505.268.5255 or send an email to email@example.com
Baptism is an outward and visible sign of in inward and spiritual grace, signifying to all the pouring out of the Holy Spirit.
Baptism is the ritual passage into the church, and the mark of God’s blessing and following the example of Jesus. Water is sign and symbol of cleansing, of birth, of newness. In baptism, we are spiritually cleansed; we are born of the Spirit and have new life.
Normally, we baptize by either pouring or sprinkling. However, if you prefer immersion baptism, we will do our best to make that possible. We do not believe that any single mode of baptism is “right” or superior to another. In fact, the various modes of baptism offer beauty and meaning. Baptism by immersion symbolizes sharing in the sign of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. Baptism by pouring or sprinkling is a sign of the pouring out of the Spirit into the life of the one baptized.
If you would like to talk about what baptism might mean to you spiritually, please call our office to make an appointment with our pastor to have a conversation about it. We baptize adults, children and babies.
Funerals and Memorial Celebrations
Memorial Celebrations and Funeral Services can be performed for members and non-members upon request. Our pastor is available to plan services both before and after a death.
We believe that each service is a celebration of life and work with you to create a meaningful service.
Receiving our name(s) are highly significant times in our lives.
Most of us receive our name long before we come into this world, however, our parents may reveal it to family and friends at our baptism, christening or welcome home party.
When we reach adulthood, however, we may find that we want to take on a new name that reflects us more clearly. Sometimes we choose this as we enter a new chapter in our lives; other times it is when we transition outwardly in our gender.
If you would like to have a naming ceremony, for either an infant, or for yourself at another time in your life, do not hesitate to contact us.
You’ll get a brand-new name
straight from the mouth of God.
You’ll be a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand,
a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God.
No more will anyone call you Rejected,
and your country will no more be called Ruined.
You’ll be called My Delight
and your land be Mine,
Because God delights in you!
~ Isaiah 62:2-3 (The Message)
