Statement of Faith

FInd out what we believe.

77 years of preparing Christ followers who are committed to making a difference in the world.

Our vision at Emmanuel remains unchanged and unapologetic: to be a multidivisional educational ministry delivering both accredited and non-accredited forms of ministry and discipleship training through diverse forms of delivery for the direct benefit of the local church. We believe the role of the Bible College today is more important and more strategic than ever, and we seek to move into the future with confidence that God is with us and that He calls us in these times to be innovative, responsive, and collaborative.

The Education


Education at an accredited Bible College is a special blend of the kinds of education that you find in other settings. The underlying focus is discipleship – how we grow in Christ and live out our life and faith in the world. The level of education is that of the university. Students are stretched by faculty teaching at a high level. Finally, the intent of the education is vocational. While some students come for only a year, or take a degree in a field that enhances the breadth of their knowledge and understanding (as might be done in a university setting with many degrees), Emmanuel also provides vocational training that leads to careers in both ministry and secular settings.

A high percentage of degree program graduates have been appointed to pastorates, to cross-cultural service and missions positions, and to a variety of leadership and service positions within churches, other ministry organizations, and the broader community. Others have continued their studies in seminaries or with advanced standing in university programs. Still other graduates choose to use their degrees as do many university students who take programs in the arts and humanities. An Emmanuel degree provides a sound foundation for entry into various careers. Diploma and certificate program graduates provide strong lay leadership in a variety of Christian ministry settings, having entered the secular workplace directly or after additional post-Emmanuel education. The College cites with pride over 2,200 alumni who are a strong influence for God and good throughout the world.


Mission

Through academic training and hands on ministry and service, Emmanuel prepares Christ followers who are committed to making a difference in their world.

Affiliates of The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada agree on the following statements


• The Holy Scriptures, as originally given by God, are divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and constitute the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
• There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
• Our Lord Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh; we affirm his virgin birth, sinless humanity, divine miracles, vicarious and atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension, ongoing mediatorial work, and personal return in power and glory.

• The salvation of lost and sinful humanity is possible only through the merits of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, received by faith apart from works, and is characterized by regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
• The Holy Spirit enables believers to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.
• The Church, the body of Christ, consists of all true believers.
• Ultimately God will judge the living and the dead, those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
