Miami Beach Community Church (MBCC) was built in 1921 making our sanctuary the oldest church in Miami Beach. Though we have a beautiful and historic campus, our thinking is progressive and our ministries are dynamic and spirit-filled. MBCC reflects the diversity and energy of South Beach. Our church is exciting and alive. When you walk in the doors of the church you are greeted by fellow seekers—all are welcome at Miami Beach Community Church, regardless of where you are on life’s journey.


Since 1957, the United Church of Christ has been the church of firsts, weaving God’s message of hope and extravagant welcome with action for justice and peace. Together, we live out our faith in ways that effect change in our communities.  The UCC's many "firsts" mean that we have inherited a tradition of acting upon the demands of our faith.  When we read in Galatians: "There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus"—a demand is made upon us. And so we were the first historically white denomination to ordain an African-American, the first to ordain a woman, the first to ordain an openly gay man, and the first Christian church to affirm the right of same-gender couples to marry. We were in the forefront of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil Rights movement.  Our response to the demands of our faith is woven into the history of our country.


At Miami Beach Community Church we model the teachings of Jesus Christ through an open-minded ministry of inclusiveness and compassion, committed to faithfulness, service to the community and life-long spiritual development. We live out our faith whether feeding the hungry and homeless or marching in the Gay parade. We help build houses for the poor and help equip the homeless as they transform their lives. We are committed to social justice and believe that God is still-speaking.
We welcome all to Christ’s table and uphold the sacraments of Communion and Baptism. People from many denominations and all walks of life are part of our family. We are equals. We are a congregational church, where everyone has a voice and we seek to fulfill God’s will as a community of believers
