Who We Are
The McMinnville Free Clinic is comprised of a diverse group of people who want to serve God and others through development of a free medical clinic in McMinnville.

Our Mission

Led by God's love and compassion, McMinnville Free Clinic seeks to provide free health care and connect people to resources in our community.

Our Goals
  • To enable individuals and organizations to help those in the community in need
  • To meet urgent needs, while connecting community members to long term services available in community
  • To have a social service and prevention focus
  • To holistically care for people: physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually, as people feel comfortable. 

We are faith based, but volunteers at MFC or Friends of the Free Clinic need not be Christians. We expect, however, that volunteers and friends should be willing to abide by Christian ethical principles, including honesty, respect, and compassion.

Our Values

Dignity - all people are uniquely made in the image of God.  
Compassion - God cares deeply for every person, especially the most vulnerable.          
Grace - all the we have is freely given by God and we seek to demonstrate the grace of God freely through our care.
Wholeness - we join in Jesus' mission to bring health, hope, and wholeness to all.
Partnership - we recognize a broad-based spectrum of gifts and resources in our community and desire to work together for the common good.

Our Faith Affirmations

All people are made in the image of God
Genesis 1:27
So God created human beings in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

God cares deeply for every person, especially the most vulnerable

Psalm 68:5-6:
A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, He leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

We experience new life through the grace of God expressed in Jesus Christ
Ephesians 2:4-5:
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions — it is by grace you have been saved.

We join in Jesus’ mission to bring health, hope, and wholeness to all
Matthew 9:35:
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.
