We want to grow together as a church family, presenting the opportunity for each person to know and serve God. That's why we believe the gospel really is 'good news' and we want to share it.
Our vision is to:
• enable the saints to know God and make Him known;
• equip the saints to serve in their God-appointed ministries;
• encourage the saints to be united in love and Christian fellowship.
Our core values shape our culture and set the precedent. They are 'love, community and honour'.
Our aim is to love God with all our heart, soul and mind (Matt. 22:37), and to love our neighbours as ourselves (Matt. 22:39). Our love for God is expressed through obedience (John 14:15) and our love for people is based upon His Word (Lev. 19:9-18).
We are a community that meets at Emmanuel Christian Centre (Rom. 16:5), being salt and light to the community around us (Matt. 5:13-16). As a church we aim to be a family (Heb. 2:11 & 1 Tim. 5:1-2) which grows together as the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:27), while declaring Jesus’ message to the world (Matt. 10:27).
We seek to show honour in every aspect of our lives. This means we honour God above all (Rev. 5:13), we honour authority (Rom. 13:1 & 1 Pet. 2:17), we honour our leaders (1 Tim. 5:17), we honour each other (Rom. 12:10), we honour financially (Prov. 3:9), and we aim to be vessels of honour (2 Tim. 2:20-21).
