What We Believe
As a Christian church, we at Emmanuel are unashamedly passionate about Jesus, for it is through Jesus Christ that God has made himself known to his world in a wonderfully clear and unique way. It is as we encounter Jesus and place our trust in his death for our sins that we can truly know our heavenly Father and live in a life-changing relationship with the God who made us and loves us.
As an Evangelical church, we are also passionate about the Bible. As the word of God, we have found it to be a trustworthy foundation for our lives and a reliable authority for how we should think, speak and act. We therefore long for everything we do as a church to be shaped by its truth. We are also committed to sharing the Bible’s message of rescue and hope through Jesus with others in our community and beyond.
As an Anglican church, we enthusiastically stand with the great Anglican reformers of the 16th century, whose many great rediscoveries include the liberating truth that God’s love and forgiveness can never be earned, but simply received as a free and undeserved gift. We respect the evangelical heritage of other denominations and are a congregation made up of people from different backgrounds.
