Who We Are

Spiritual Growth

We are a church that is dedicated to the spiritual growth and spiritual maturity of our people through the practical preaching and teaching of God's Word.

Share the Gospel

We are a church dedicated to spiritual growth so that our people are completely equipped to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to a lost world who desperately needs it.

So the World will Know

We are a church dedicated to spiritual growth and equipping our people so the world can experience the Amazing, Life-Changing, Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Mission and Vision

We believe that God has given us a very powerful and particular mission and vision for our church. 

God has called each one of us (his church) to be the Point where God's Grace intersects with the real life of this world.

Therefore, we believe each one of us is to be a Grace Point everywhere we go, in everything we do, and with everyone we meet.

Our Mission:

Our Church exists to draw all people into an intimate relationship with Christ, through the authority of the Word of God, producing an authentic community of believers that invest in reaching the lost.

Our Vision:

We are committed to discipling members to become Mature Believers that are Grace Points making a difference in their Communities.

The following is our Statement of Faith and the core doctrines of our church.



We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for Himself and to make all things new for His own glory.


The Bible

We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.


Human Condition

We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God’s saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed.


Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus—Israel's promised Messiah—was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.


The Works of Christ

We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.


The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides, equips and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service. 


Response & Eternal Destiny

We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment and the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth, to the praise of His glorious grace. Amen.


Christian Living

We believe that God's justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely and others sacrificially, and to live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor and justice for the oppressed. With God’s Word, the Spirit’s power, and fervent prayer in Christ’s name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed.


The Church

We believe that the true church comprises all who have been justified by God's grace through faith alone in Christ alone. They are united by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head. The true church is manifest in local churches, whose membership should be composed only of believers. The Lord Jesus mandated two ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which visibly and tangibly express the gospel. Though they are not the means of salvation, when celebrated by the church in genuine faith, these ordinances confirm and nourish the believer.


Christ's Return

We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of our Lord Jesus Christ. The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission.

Our History

In August of 1997 the Lord placed a desire in the hearts of a group of people for an evangelical church in the Montello area. This group began meeting together for prayer and Bible study.

After meeting for a year and with the help of the EFCA this group called its first Pastor, Kirt Schmidt, in October of 1998.

Under the leadership of Pastor Kirt this group continued to grow and in August of 1999 they held their first service as Marquette Community Church.

Through much prayer and generous donations from individuals and churches MCC received land and the funds to build. Through the hard work of committed members, MCC moved to their new location and building on July 4, 2004.

In 2015, Pastor Kirt stepped down as Pastor after 17 years of faithfully service.

The church called Pastor Kevin Dick to be their Interim Pastor and began the process of looking for a new Pastor.

Though the process was long and hard, the church united in prayer, mission, and grew in faith.

In May of 2017 the church called Pastor Mike Vargo to be MCC’s new Pastor.

God continues to greatly bless MCC and our Mission to “Love People to Life.”
