The Four Foundations of Immanuel's Vision

  1. We see ourselves as a church that is evangelical, reaching out boldly to the lost and hurting in our community, taking risks and getting out of our comfort zone so that we may, like St. Paul "by all possible means save some." (1 Corinthians 9:22) 
  2. We see ourselves as disciples, joyfully involved in a continuous journey of intentional spiritual growth, holding ourselves and each other accountable to the Marks of Discipleship.
  3. We see ourselves as believers living in true community with each other, valuing healthy, loving, vibrant relationships among all those who call Immanuel home.
  4. We see ourselves as a church firmly founded on Word and Sacrament, rooted in Christ, Scripture, and in the teachings of the Lutheran Confessions.
