Being the tangible expression of the Christian presence in the region, the Council’s mission is to work towards the unification of visions, perspectives and attitudes among Eastern churches, especially on issues related to Christian presence and witness in the Middle East and Muslim-Christian relations.

The Council’s mission is seen today as being a bridge:

A bridge between Eastern Christians: to remove prejudices and barriers between churches, the MECC brings together the vast majority of Christians and churches in the Middle East. It provides them the adequate space to come together, pray, reflect, analyze, speak with a common voice, and act and witness together.
A bridge between Christians and peoples of other religions in the region, especially with Muslims: to reinforce and develop organized dialogue and partnerships with enlightened Muslims aiming at strengthening and deepening friendship and peace between people for the good of humanity.
A bridge between the Middle East churches and Western churches: to be a mediator between Christians and churches in the region and their brothers and sisters in Christ elsewhere.
