Their vision is to support the ministries that reach families and children in the area through shared school and daycare ministries and to personally reach their circle of friends, neighbors and relatives. The goal is to share all that they have to bless each other’s work.

Emmanuel’s Core Values are preaching from the Bible, fidelity to the Bible and outreach to their personal neighbors and to the church neighborhood. They are welcoming and kind to people with all needs and fellowship and meet regularly for spiritual encouragement and accountability.
