Who We Are
Emmaus Abbey Parish is a conservative Christian church that centers its worship on "Spirit, Word and Sacrament." We are an "Ancient Faith Future Church," meaning we are a Christian church that believes the road to the future runs through the past. And this is really what “Ancient-Future” means: Our worship and spirituality are deeply rooted in classic Christianity. We’re convinced that the faith and practice of the ancient Church will engage our culture more effectively and provide a way forward in a time of almost unbelievable transition and change. So, first we want you to know that we're not a traditional church, as most folks define it, and never will be.
We have little interest in religious denominational or institutional survival or the traditional ways of measuring success. We seek to minister to the unchurched and those committed to genuine church fellowship. If you are looking for a church trying to do the next post modern worship gig...seeking Calvinism , or if you’re a seeker after modern church programs, our community is probably not for you. We are not a denominational church; we are a Communion of churches meaning we are seeking to reclaim the faith of the early church. All of our Christian churches in U.S. have the same services prayer, reading of scripture, praise and worship music, communion, time for healing prayer and fellowship after service. We seek to evangelize, disciple people to disciple others in the Christian faith. Our worship is simple and straight forward...we preach, we teach, take communion and adhere to the faith once delivered.
Our congregation consists of many Methodists, Presbyterians, Baptists , Anglicans, Catholics and Nazarene's wanting to get back to conservative morals and values.
