We believe that God is still speaking.
We believe that all baptized persons are one in the body of Christ. No matter where you come from or where you are in your spiritual journey, we all belong to a family of faith that seeks a true relationship with God.
At Emmanuel, just as in all United Church of Christ churches, we believe in the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Christ, the head of the church, calls people together in faith and love of God and the world.
The mission of Emmanuel United Church of Christ is to worship God and grow in the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ. We are committed to following in His ways and inviting others to know and to follow Him. We are called to serve the community by witnessing to our faith and beliefs through fellowship and acts of love.
In 1838, European settlers in Liverpool Township founded a small congregation and called themselves Emmanuel. Our building in Valley City stands on the same site where members and friends have been meeting since the 1870s.
