We believe Immanuel Presbyterian Church is called by grace to be an inclusive community of Christian faith embodying the redemptive life, suffering and death of Jesus Christ, by the power of his resurrection. Jesus’ identity and mission were anchored in the calling of Israel to be a healing people for all of God’s abused creation.
Jesus cared for those bound by poverty, those sick in body and soul, those oppressed by cold-hearted society, those imprisoned, those repressed by materialism, those ignored by the world.
God calls us to compassionate, relevant ministry for people in need: bodily care to the ailing, food for the hungry, comfort for the troubled, shelter for the homeless, nurture for the young, rest for the weary, assurance for the wavering.
The Holy Spirit empowers us, through the waters of baptism, at the supper of our Lord, by the study of holy scripture, with the company of believers, to proclaim the love of God which heals old wounds, rejoices in differences, rescues harmony from discord and makes Immanuel Presbyterian Church a sanctuary of welcome for all people.
