Basic information

Our Mission Statement

We aim to live as radical disciples of Jesus Christ. Our mission is both local and global. We seek to extend the Kingdom of God through:

  • Biblical teaching
  • Caring fellowship
  • Living worship
  • Ongoing evangelism
  • Practical service

Objectives

Emmanuel has five core objectives that informs everything we do. All five are closely interwoven, so no one objective can exist in isolation:

Teaching and Training

To develop our teaching and discipleship programmes for everyone, with the aim of being holy, informed and effective Christians equipped to serve Jesus Christ in the world.

Caring and Healing

To grow as a welcoming and caring Church with an active personal commitment to look after each other’s interests and to see people being made whole – spiritually, emotionally and physically – through the power of Christ.

Worship and Prayer

To grow in our understanding and practice of worship as the whole family of God, using a rich variety of forms and to develop an effective ministry of prayer.

Witness and Service

To grow in our witness and service for Christ through evangelism and social action, in the belief that the Gospel is seen in our words and our works.

Partnership and Mission

To develop effective partnerships with other evangelical Churches both in our own denomination and beyond, and to grow in our involvement in Mission both in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus
