In a day when many churches are rejecting traditional beliefs and values, Emmanuel stands unique. In fact, the more we stay the same, the more different we become! Many “contemporary” churches minimize preaching, often substituting drama, videos, and other types of entertainment for the old-fashioned preaching of the Word of God. At Emmanuel, we see things differently. We are told in I Corinthians 1:18 that, “The preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” Therefore, preaching is the central issue at Emmanuel.
