We at Emmanuel believe that love and respect should govern the way we interact with one another. No matter where you come from, who you are, or how you identify yourself, there is a place for you here at Emmanuel. 
We are currently in conversation about our future, our vision, and our core identity statements, working to define who we want to be as a church. 
Our first step has been to create and formally adopt (April 19, 2023) the following statement around inclusion…

The Emmanuel Baptist Church Statement of Inclusivity

Emmanuel Baptist Church believes that love and respect should govern the way we interact with one another.  Though we may have diverse perspectives on faith, theology, and biblical interpretation, we are drawn together by a love for Jesus, care for one another, a passion for our community, and a desire to invite others to share in this with us.  No matter who a person is, where a person comes from, or how a person identifies themselves, there is a place for them within the community life of Emmanuel.  We welcome into membership and leadership all who have made a commitment to follow Jesus, without regard to their race, ethnic background, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, income, education, ability, and other factors that give rise to division and marginalization.


At present our denominational affiliation is transitioning to the Canadian Association for Baptist Freedoms (CABF). At Emmanuel we are working to address and set right ways in which we are complicit in exclusionary practices, whether that be through our own church policies or through our affiliations.
Our weekly community gathering is on Sunday at 10:30 am. Music, prayer, stories, Bible texts, teaching, art, and interactive community moments are all regular components of the liturgy. Drop us a note if you have any questions we can help you with or come visit in person.  You can drop a note to either a staff person or Board member by clicking here.
