Our values

We firmly believe that as our Father’s children, the new nature we have in Christ produces the Father’s values in us. Out of those values flow the vision for our role in the mission of making disciples. At Camp Emmanuel, our core values are: The Father’s Heart, Our Identity in Christ, and Right Relationships.

  • The Father's Heart (Matthew 28:19,20) - Our mission is to make disciples of all peoples. It is the Father's heart that all the children would come home.
  • Identity in Christ (1 John 3:1) - Growing in Christ is all about becoming who we were created to be. We were created to be Sons and Daughters of God.
  • Right Relationships (Luke 10:27) - As Sons and Daughters of God we have the privilege of loving God with all our heart and loving one another as we have been loved. You are never more rightly related to someone than you are when you are washing their feet.
