Emmanuel United Methodist Church

Mission Statement
Emmanuel United Methodist Church is a bridge community of faith over which people are invited to Christ and His Church, to experience His love, forgiveness and healing and where they can grow in His likeness to serve and share Him with others. We are called to make disciples and disciplers. The heart of our ministry is prayer, discipling, and servanthood / outreach.

Identity Statement
We see ourselves as a bridge church between different segments of the community (ethnic and socioeconomic) and between different religious and worship expressions/experiences in the Christian context.

What We Believe
We believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy *catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
