Emmaus Abbey Church provides a weekly Sunday worship with vibrant teaching and preaching of God's holy word. The Institute for Healing and Counseling is a place where people can find hope and resolution to their spiritual problems.

We use scripture, healing prayer and group settings to help people gain an understanding that God can deliver us from any situation we are living.
