To Know Christ is to Share His Love

Experiencing Faith and Life Together

At Immanuel, we are commited to the biblical teachings and model of Jesus.  When we learn from Jesus we learn His values, and His ways.  We strive to make His values and His ways, our values and our way of living.   

Belong

As a community of faith that shares the heart and value of Jesus, here at Immanuel we value all human beings whom are desired by God to be called into a life of faith and eternity with Him.  Immanuel is committed to the biblical teaching of Jesus which clearly lived out that all belong and are loved by Him no matter, who they are, what they’ve done, or where they’ve been because we are first loved by Him as those who bear His image.  We value that all belong and are valuable as we contribute to the Kingdom of God.

1 Timothy 2:4 “(God) who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

Luke 18:16 But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.

Mark 9:41 For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward.

Believe

As a community of faith that seeks to grow closer to Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit, we are called and brought into faith and a life of ever growing belief, in the one true God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  We believe that God’s Word is inspired and true, active and living in our lives, through our hearts and our actions.  We value that the Jesus follower never stops growing, never stops learning and never stops loving as God first loved us.

Acts 16:31 “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.”

John 20:31 “But these [the scriptures] are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”

Mark 1:15 “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

Become

As a community of faith, that trusts in God as the owner of all things and people, including us, we never stop growing in our becoming more and more like Jesus through our daily lives.  Each day we become greater image bearers of His love as a response to the magnitude of His affection for us.  As His disciples, we seek to worship weekly, with the brothers and sisters in our community, learn daily through reading, learning and memorizing His Word, and living out our lives as an expression of His heart and love for others in word and deed.  May our lives be a mirror of his compassion, generosity, and faithfulness to reach all people with His message of love and care. We value becoming who He transforms us to be as the body of Christ.

1 John 4:19 “We love because He first loved us”

2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

Romans 12:1-2 “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Immanuel is a community focused, Christ centered, home for all.  We are excited that you are taking some time to find out more.
