To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world is the mission of the United Methodist Church
. John Wesley, one of the founders of the Methodist Church, and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis continues to be a hallmark of United Methodism today. Emmanuel UMC is part of the Confessing Movement
within the United Methodist Church and confesses Jesus Christ as the Son, the Savior, and the Lord.
