Who We Are
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU VISIT
When you come in the doors...
...expect to be greeted warmly! You'll receive a bulletin with the morning schedule and announcements about upcoming events and ministry opportunities.
If you have kids...
...we love kids and have a awesome staff to lead them. We have Sunday School classes for all ages and also have a great children's church for preschool and elementary-aged kids during the adult worship service. We also offer a baby nursery and a nursing mothers area that is private with a view of the service.
During the Service...
...we'll worship God through singing, praying, and reading Scripture. There's not a lot of 'ritual' in the service, and you are invited to express yourself in worship. There will be a time to give an offering, but don't feel obligated - you're a guest! The pastor will share a relevant message, explaining Truth for your life from the Bible.
Four more things You should know...
1. Wear what is comfortable
The people of our family range from homemakers to professional businessmen, young children to retirees. No matter what stage or place in life you are, come just as you are.
2. Don’t worry if you haven’t been before
Don’t worry if you haven’t been to church in a while or ever before in your life; we are all on this journey of life together and God has a plan for you!
3. You will be accepted just as you are
The Bible tells us that Jesus died for us, when we were still sinners. He will help us clean up our lives after we come to Him!
4. The worship is upbeat and the messages are for life application
The worship is blended choruses and hymns in an upbeat and joyful environment. The preaching is Bible based and always practical to life. Join together with us in worship of God and hearing His Word!
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Emmett Nazarene Church is a Christian Church. Our beliefs are common to Christians around the world. Here is what we believe...
WE BELIEVE... in one God, who reveals Himself to us as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE... that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, inspired by God, contains all truth necessary to ignite faith and nurture Christian living.
WE BELIEVE... that people are born with a sinful nature, and are basically stuck in sin without the transformational touch of God's grace.
WE BELIEVE... that all who reject God will be separated from Him forever.
WE BELIEVE... that the exchange that Jesus made for our lives, His for ours, is for EVERYONE who repents and believes that Jesus is Lord, regardless of their past. God gives us freedom and His power to live above the muck of this world.
WE BELIEVE... that believers, through the empowering of God's Spirit, are to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE... that the Holy Spirit lets us know that we belong to God, and will stick with us through thick and thin, as we choose to daily follow Him.
WE BELIEVE... that Jesus Christ will return, the dead will be raised, and all who have given their lives to God will live with Him in heaven forever.
More than anything, we believe that God is with us and He is our HOPE in establishing His Kingdom here on Earth as it is in Heaven. We are passionate about spreading His LOVE and GRACE to all we encounter, helping them to be restored to God's design and His plan for their lives.
