Expect a friendly welcome, great music and sermons that are relevant, engaging and down to earth.
Expect your kids to love it. The Woods (Grades JK-5) and the Creek (ages 0-4) are fun and safe environments for kids to explore and learn about God in ways that they will remember for years.
Expect to find people like you. Dress comfortably. Jeans are great - but so are suits. Whatever you want to wear is fine with us. And when you get here, expect to find people who don't have it all figured out, but like you, are on a journey. Feel free to be yourself.
We have a nursery and Sunday school for all ages. The Creek - made up of the "Critters" (0-24 months) and the "Explorers" (2-4 years), and the Woods (K-Gr. 5) meet down "Kids Lane.” If you need help, there are those who can assist you at the welcome desk located at the front entrance.
Our Jr High (Gr 6-8) and High School students meet at 9:45am on Sundays in the Youth Room.
Many of our people meet in small groups throughout the week. These groups give each person the opportunity to get plugged into Emmanuel by developing Christ-centred friendships. However, there are numerous programs that give you opportunities to meet new people.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
God: We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three equal Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Christ: We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ.
The Holy Spirit: We believe in the absolute and essential deity and personality of the Holy Spirit.
Humanity: We believe that the human race was divinely created in the image of God as male and female persons; that they sinned, becoming guilty before God, resulting in total depravity, thereby incurring physical and spiritual death for themselves and their descendants.
Salvation: We believe that salvation is by the sovereign, electing grace of God; that justification is by faith alone in the all sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Satan: We believe that Satan is a created being, a fallen angel, who exists as an evil personality, who will, upon Christ’s triumphant return, be finally and utterly defeated.
