Vision & Mission

"Immanuel" literally means "God with us". We believe that God has empowered us with his presence FOR HIS GLORY, FOR THE WORLD, FOR THIS CITY, AND FOR YOU. As Christ-followers we are called to "make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that [Jesus] commanded" (Matt. 28:19-20). Our aim is to be a people who are actively pointing others to Jesus with all that we are. What this means is that we are compelled to take the message of the Gospel with us wherever we go, because we are "not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes" (Romans 1:16).

Although the "style" of our ministry may look different than others, it is merely the expression of essential truths to which we cling. Our church has a unique DNA, and we believe God has strategically equipped us to reach the people He has called us to most effectively.

At the end of the day, our main goal is to worship God and love people. We want you to come exactly as you are (physically, emotionally, and spiritually). You may feel like a mess, and that's alright. We serve a God who mends and heals.

Our hope is that, above all else, you would encounter Jesus Christ firsthand at Immanuel, because He is the center of everything we do.
