About Us

Emanuel Church, Hales Corners

United Church of Christ

Our Beliefs

We believe that God is with us always, even when we do not realize it. It is our responsibility to become aware of how present God is with us. We believe that the persistent search for God produces an authentic relationship with God, engendering love, strengthening faith, dissolving guilt, and giving life purpose and direction.

We believe Jesus is our Friend, Teacher, and Savior. His teachings lead us on the Way of Love. He heals us from despair and plants a seed of hope within us. He wants us to strive and thrive–to be the best we can be. 

We believe that the Holy Spirit creates and renews the church of Jesus Christ, helping us spread the love of God.

We believe the Bible is a beautiful, God-inspired, complex, and challenging book and that God continues to inspire and reveal to us new insights. We like to say, “Never place a period where God has placed a comma.”

These are our beliefs, yet you will find in our congregation that beliefs can vary among members, and that’s okay. Ultimately, our commitment to Jesus Christ is more important than how we understand that commitment.
