Welcome to Emmanuel Online!   


Emmanuel is located in Starkville, Mississippi. We teach and preach the Bible as God’s inspired, infallible message to mankind and proclaim faith in Jesus Christ alone as the means to receive eternal life.

 Our ministry focus is in three areas:

Knowing God’s love- We believe a believer is secure in their relationship with Christ and can know that they have eternal life.

   Growing in God’s love – Our goal is to help every member grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and reach maturity.

   Sowing God’s love – As believers we are God’s ambassadors to a lost world.

   Our worship services employ a blended style of music combining contemporary songs, hymns, and choruses. Please look at the About Us link for information on our beliefs, vision, worship, and leadership.

   We have Sunday School classes for all ages and a friendly worship service. Our AWANA program meets on Sunday evenings and we have a fellowship meal, study, and prayer on Wednesday evenings.

   Enjoy the site and pay us a visit for worship and fellowship.
