Emmanuel’s key objectives embody its distinctive nature: weekly family-focused contemporary worship catering for all ages; active participation of laypeople; commitment to children’s and youth ministry and home groups; partnership with Concordia Lutheran College; mission focus: local, national and overseas; harmony and active participation with other Lutheran Congregations; and involvement in ecumenical initiatives.
Lutherans believe that:
the one true God has made himself known as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a belief Lutherans share with all other Christians.
God loves every human being, even though all people have rebelled and none of us deserves his love.
Jesus Christ is God's Son. Because God is love, He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for the sin of the world. Jesus fulfilled God’s Law perfectly and then died on the cross to pay the price for all sin. People can be saved only through faith in Him.
because of Jesus, God has forgiven all people all their sins. God offers his forgiveness to everyone as a free gift. No-one can earn God's forgiveness or pay for it. It is ours when we believe in Jesus as our Saviour.
the Bible is God's message of love and hope for all people. The Bible is the written Word of God, handed down to us in order to point us to the truth that we are saved from our sin and eternal death by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible is completely reliable and without error.
