Emmanuel Anglican church
"In Christ, we participate in His cosmic story of the renewal and redemption of all things"
We are welcomed into His story, formed for His story, and sent out to invite others into His story!
We welcome one another as Christ has welcomed us:
In Baptism, we are welcomed into the life of the Holy Trinity and embedded in His Body, the Church. This radical welcome is despite the fact that we were his enemies and are underserving of it. Likewise, we welcome all who enter into our community at any point with the love of Jesus Christ.
We are his beloved, and in our baptism, the Father proclaims the same words over us, "This is my beloved Son/daughter in whom I am well pleased."
Formation comes through commitment to God and to one another.
Consumerism is the opposite of covenant love, whereby we see God committing to a church that is unfaithful. The unconditional love of Jesus is what produces change, because we no longer need to be afraid of losing the one who loves us. The church can be a community of healing when we commit to one another.

Jesus' commitment to the Father led to the cross, which was the source of his liberation!
Our desire is to have a ministry of faithful presence in our communities.
