Scripture, Spirit, Sacrament, Service
Serving Cleveland and Bradley County, Tennessee
and the rest of the world
Emmanuel Fellowship held its first communion at Johnson Park in March of 2003. We put a stake in the ground with the following scripture written on it:
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
We feel this passage in Isaiah is very much our mission statement. We know that only the Lord Jesus Christ, through the work of the Holy Spirit, can anoint us to fulfill such a calling. The poor, the brokenhearted, those held captive, and the those in darkness can be in bondage spiritually, financially, emotionally, or physically. One thing is for certain: Jesus Christ has come to set us all free and to remind us that He loves us, He has forgiven us, He is not mad at us, and that He will never leaves us nor forsake us.
Emmanuel Fellowship held its first formal service the last week of October, 2005 at the Keith Street Church of God of Prophecy. We remained there until May of 2012. We are most grateful to Keith Street Ministry for their love, support, and for the use of their facilities as we continued to grow and minister.
Since then, we have moved to 155 Inman Street, where we invite all of our neighbors to join us in meeting the Lord through liturgy each Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m.
It is a pleasure to be called and to serve the people of Cleveland and Bradley County.
Come join us for as we experience Emmanuel – God with us.
