Who We Are

Who We Are

THE HEART OF EMMANUEL

At the heart of every organization is a set of values, a root purpose for being. These are the things that must not change in order to be your true self, your character. Below are four things that must not change in order for us to be truly ourselves at Emmanuel Presbyterian Church. At the very heart is the Grace of Jesus. We express this heart by Caring Deeply, Bridging Differences, and Moving Beyond Church. We’re a work in progress. We hope you will join us in this work.

EXPERIENCING GRACE

Is a gift freely given and unearned.
Is new life, a new way forward.
Is ongoing, it demands to be shared with no strings attached.

CARING DEEPLY

Is to accompany others in life’s journey.
Is to value others.
Is to go the extra mile.

BRIDGING DIFFERENCES

Is unity without demanding uniformity.
Is able to say, “I could be wrong.”
Is secure in our convictions in order to hear out others.

MOVING BEYOND CHURCH

Is being a people with Jesus at the center, traveling wherever Jesus takes us.
Is trusting that God is active in the world.
Is meeting others in their context.
