Our Vision Of The Future

Uniting generations and cultures,

Pursuing fully alive relationships,

Free in fearless faith,

Reaching out, walking with, and serving,

As Christ serves us!

Immanuel is a Lutheran commmunity.  This means that we are Christians first, but that we have a special history about how we got here!  If you’re interested in how it all started why not read the first confession of Evangelical Christians written in 1530AD.   It could be called the first ‘Lutheran’ document.  It’s available here…  The Augsburg Confession
