About MCC


Connect, Grow, Serve … All in the Love of God

We exist to glorify God by introducing people to Jesus Christ and CONNECT them to other believers;

to GROW in our understanding of each other and of God’s word through teaching and small group learning;

to SERVE all people with the hope they come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior of their lives; and do this all, in the love of God.

 

We choose to reach out

Everyone has a place, a purpose, and gifts to be used by God. As a community church we have varied church backgrounds and expressions of worship. We wish for everyone to be a follower of Jesus, to love and serve God and to love and serve our community.

We desire to love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and spirit and to love our neighbor as our self.

Though our building is in East Bremerton, we live and are involved in ministry throughout Kitsap County and beyond. We work, raise families, play softball, and scrapbook. We struggle, fall, and help each other up. We laugh, we cry, we look for God’s hand both in good and difficult times. It is when the church serves the world with radical acts of kindness and compassion, expecting nothing in return, that we show Jesus in us most profoundly.

We hope you find Manette Community such a church.

MCC actively serves alongside the local business association to present Manette Fest and Winterfest for the community. Established over 100 years ago, we desire to bring the relevancy of Jesus Christ to every generation.

 

We are affiliated with

Mission Northwest (ABC-NW) – over 150 churches working together to grow healthy, mission-focused churches that multiply disciples and churches.

 

We believe

The Bible is the inspired word of God and the only trustworthy source for understanding God.

Jesus Christ is God’s Son, existing from the beginning of time. All things were created through him. He was sent to earth by his Father to represent God as
a man and to give his life for our sins.

The Holy Spirit is a full and equal part of the Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) who indwells each believer and leads us to all truth.

Man is the pinnacle of God’s creation and the only being on earth that God made in His own spiritual image, with the moral ability to choose right from wrong.

Salvation is an unmerited gift from God. Our disobedient nature eternally separates us from our Creator. No matter how hard we try, we can never earn our way back into God’s presence. Faith in Jesus is the only way to receive forgiveness and eternal life from God.

Prayer is a means of honoring and talking with God.
