MCC’s work reflects our belief that true security is built through friendship, mutuality, diplomacy, economic development and equitable sharing of global resources – not through military power.

"The war horse is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save. Our soul waits for the LORD ... our help and shield." (Psalm 33:17, 20, NRSV)

In addition to working for peace and nonviolence in countries around the world, MCC:

  • Advocates for reducing U.S. military expenditures and spending more on life-giving programs
  • Helps Christians explore what it means to be peacemakers in a dominant military power
  • Offers information about conscientious objection, counseling for people in the military or those thinking about joining, and resources for congregations wanting to engage with military veterans
  • Provides resources and stories on Christians who witness for peace by redirecting their war tax dollars
  • Asks people to advocate against the use of cluster bombs, which can remain deadly for decades after war

Help us explore ways to build a worldwide community that is peaceful and secure, recognizing that in our weakness, God's true strength is revealed. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
