Emmanuel Presbyterian Church

Mission Statement

Emmanuel Church is a community of believers, centered in the Morningside Heights area of New York. We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church who warmly welcome people from all church backgrounds and none. Committed to the historic Christian faith as summarized in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds and rekindled by the Protestant Reformation. We call ourselves “Emmanuel” (“God with us”) because we believe that Jesus has brought God near to us. God’s nearness brings life to all that we do—to our worship, our friendships, our families, our thought life, our studies, and our work. We embrace Emmanuel’s love for the city and seek to share his beauty, truth, and goodness with the diverse communities where we live and work.
