About Our Vision

Our Vision

What we're all about

We exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God the Father.

As a church, our goals can be summed up in three words:

Worship, Grow, Serve

We are passionate about seeing people come to know Christ, grow in Christ, and serve Christ.

All of our services, programs, and ministries have been designed to help you taste and see  the treasure that is Jesus Christ. We are faithful to teach the Bible, in hopes that you would learn to apply its truths to your life.

Emmanuel is a place to belong, so be prepared to make good friends.

Emmanuel is a place to grow, so come with your questions and be open about your struggles.

Emmanuel is a place to serve, a place to use your spiritual gifts to the glory of God.

Emmanuel is a place to worship. Come and rejoice with your fellow redeemed.

Oh, and come as you are. You don't have to clean yourself up before you come to church. Come meet Jesus and let Him do the cleaning. We promise that in Christ you will find what your heart has always longed for and always needed.

This is a place for you, a place to belong.

Our beliefs


We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God; that the sixty-six books, as originally written, comprising the Old and New Testaments were verbally inspired by the Spirit of God and were entirely free from error; that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis of Christian Union.


We believe in one God, creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ, in His eternal existence with the Father in pre-incarnate glory, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the absolute and essential deity and personality of the Holy Spirit who convinces of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement; who regenerates, sanctifies, illuminates and comforts those who believe in Jesus Christ.


We believe that Satan exists as an evil personality, the originator of sin, the arch-enemy of God and man.


We believe that man was divinely created in the image of God; that he sinned, becoming guilty before God, resulting in total depravity, thereby incurring physical and spiritual death.


We believe salvation is by the sovereign, electing grace of God; that by the appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a substitutionary death; that justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and that those who God has effectually called shall be divinely preserved and finally perfected in the image of the Lord.

Future Things

We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust; in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and in the judgement and conscious, eternal punishment of the wicked.


We believe that a church is a company of immersed believers, called out from the world, separated unto the Lord Jesus, voluntarily associated for the ministry of the Word, the mutual edification of its members, the propagation of the faith and the observance of the ordinances. We believe it is a sovereign, independent body, exercising its own divinely awarded gifts, precepts and privileges under the Lordship of Christ, the Great Head of the church. We believe that its officers are pastors and deacons. 


We believe that there are only two ordinances for the church regularly observed in the New Testament in the following order: 

1. Baptism, which is the immersion of the believer in water, whereby he obeys Christ's command and sets forth his identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. 

2. The Lord's Supper, which is the memorial wherein the believer partakes of the two elements, bread and wine, which symbolize the Lord's body and shed blood, proclaiming his death until He comes. 


We believe in the entire separation of church and state. 


We believe in religious liberty; that every man has the right to practice and propagate his beliefs.


We believe that the first day of week is the Lord's day, and that, in a special sense, it is the divinely appointed day for worship and spiritual exercise. 

Civil Government

We believe that civil government is of divine appointment for the interest and good order of society; that magistrates are to be prayed for, conscientiously honoured and obeyed, except only in the things opposed to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the only Lord of the conscience and Prince of the kings of the earth.
