EmmanuelChurch strives to glorify God by sharing the good news of Jesus with those who do not know Him and leading those who do know Him to be committed Christ followers that embrace the mission of the Church and live out that mission in the context of authentic biblical community.
OUR STRATEGY TO GLORFY GOD:
Sharing the good news of Jesus…
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile” Romans 1:16
Preaching – Teaching – Visitation – Evangelism
Making the most of every encounter to share the good news of Jesus.
Leading those who do know Him…
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
Discipleship - Mentorships – Bible Studies - Prayer
Levering relationships to challenge people to life-long devotion to the Way of Jesus.
Embrace the Mission…
He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority; but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Acts 1:7-8

Context of Authentic Biblical Community…
They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved. Acts 2:42-47
Unity – Maturity – Accountability
