Kansas

Emmanuel’s mission is to engage people beyond their walls with life-changing Gospel truth. Strategically positioned in the Kansas City metropolitan area, Emmanuel exists to provide their community a worship venue where God’s redemptive message is clearly presented and lives can be transformed.  They encourage attendees to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ through meaningful connections with other believers and to live out their faith by serving God as they impact their neighbors and the nations for Christ.

The most beautiful aspect of the church is its people. There is diversity among its membership, spanning a cross-section of age, race, ethnicity, socio-economic, and religious backgrounds.  Members are united by a commitment to passionately love God individually and together, purposefully grow in Christ in such a way where no one walks alone, and profoundly influence people by meeting needs and making Jesus known.
