Deacons exist in the church as an extension of care from the pastors to the people in order to preserve a culture of unity.
Christ’s death becomes our death, Christ’s resurrection becomes our resurrection, Christ’s triumph over his enemies, becomes our triumph over his enemies, Christ’s security in heaven becomes our security in heaven.
Pray with us for the nations to hear the gospel here in our own city!
When we say we are an A29 church, we are saying something about our theology, our missiology and our philosophy; we are making a statement about our cultural identity.
At Emmaus we wish to cultivate an understanding of membership that does justice to both the actual benefits and the responsibilities that are inherent with church membership. Membership is neither casual nor selfish, but is instead an intentional, selfless giving of oneself to a church family.
I believe that God has uniquely gifted Emmaus members with the ability and the desire to immerse themselves in a community like NKC in order to see it flourish while also reaching their own communities throughout the week.
In all of this, we want every person who participates in our liturgy to walk away deeply impressed by Jesus.
We want for our corporate gatherings to, in a way, be a microcosm of the Christian life.
At Emmaus, we don’t want to do anything absent-mindedly; we want to have an explicitly biblical/gospel-drenched reason for everything that we do.
He is a gracious God who provides what he requires (a means), and he is a holy God who cares about how he is worshiped.
