At Immanuel we strive to exalt our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:
...through worship which seeks to exalt God and bring people into awareness of His presence and grace, whereby we glorify Him and are challenged to be alive for Him.
...through ministry to the people of God whereby we are loved, nurtured, equipped, and given opportunity to shine for Him.
...through ministry to the lost of the world whereby they are loved and given opportunity to see the Light, to be drawn to the Light and to respond to the Light and the grace of God in Christ Jesus.
Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV)
Jesus replied: “'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
