Emmanuel is a community of Christ-followers who meet together weekly to worship God and to seek God’s will for our lives, both as individuals and as a family. The heartbeat of this community is our common worship and relationship with the God revealed in scripture – Father, Son, and Spirit. As we gather together, over time, our desire is that we might become more and more of who we are intended to be: God’s own people, with a unique part to play in God’s mission of reconciling and restoring the world. We are constantly working out this identity and this calling in our life together.
Through a process of prayerful discernment and conversation, Emmanuel’s Leadership Team has established the following guiding statements of our vision, mission, and values as a community:
Our vision is to lead each member of our family to better understand and participate in the realization of the kingdom of God.
Emmanuel strives to mature in faith as a family of believers by building each other up through nurturing each of our diverse strengths so that we may function together as the imitation of Christ.
FAMILY: Living alongside one another and loyally walking through life together with support, accountability, and love.
TEACHING: Seeking wisdom and pursuing maturity in Christ through a deep, biblical understanding of our faith.
DISCIPLING: Walking beside each other and intentionally fostering genuine relationships that are rooted in our faith.
NEIGHBORING: Turning outward to engage with others, both locally and globally, through steadfast support and personal relationships.
