Emmanuel Chapel is a community of Christans who love the Lord Jesus Christ and are committed to proclaiming and living out the gospel of grace together. We are a church that embraces the historic Christian faith as summarized by the ancient ecumenical creeds, and the Reformed theology of the Westminster Confession of Faith. Emmanuel Chapel began as a mission church of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho, and is a member of the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches (CREC).
Principles & Practices
Robust & Reverent Worship
Worship is central to the life of Emmanuel Chapel. In our service of worship, we assemble together before the Lord to offer our praises to Him and enjoy the gifts and blessings of His covenant. Furthermore, through worship on Sunday, God shapes and prepares us to live faithfully before him through the rest of the week. Our weekly worship service includes the reading and preaching of scripture, the offering of prayers, the singing of Psalms and hymns, and the celebration of the Lord’s Table. For more information on worship at Emmanuel Chapel, please see our Worship Page.
We are committed to a preaching and teaching ministry that faithfully proclaims and applies “the whole counsel of God” to the hearts and lives of God’s people.
The family is fundamental to the well-being of both church and society. It is our desire to see families that are founded upon and grounded in the teaching of God’s Word. Therefore, an important part of our ministry is to assist and equip parents for spiritual leadership in the home.
We want our church community to manifest the life and joy of the Kingdom of God. Accordingly, we place an emphasis on celebration and feasting, fellowship and hospitality, and Christ-centered service.
Christ’s Lordship & the Cultural Mandate
The Dutch theologian Abraham Kuyper said, “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: ‘Mine!’ ” Jesus Christ is Lord, and we believe that His lordship extends to every sphere of life, including family, the workplace, education, culture, and politics. All of life is to be pursued to the glory of Christ and in obedience to His Word.
