MemberShip of Immanuel Lutheran Church of Saratoga

The work of the Membership Team is to build the church community by nurturing relationships. The Membership Team works to help new members learn about the community of Immanuel and become more connected in the church family. This is done by planning events that allow members to interact with each other, learn from each other, and live together as beloved children of God.

We are a congregation that welcomes all, for we believe that God welcomes us all in Christ. We are convinced that the Christian life is always lived in response to God's love for us. We gather as a congregation to celebrate God's love revealed to us in Jesus, to share it with others, and to shine the light of Christ's love into the world. ILC is a Christ-centered Bible-believing church and is a member of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). We are committed to faithfully preaching and teaching the Word of God. We believe that Jesus is the Messiah who was born to save us from our sins and that He showed us how to live a truly human life - a life lived in praise to God and in service to one another. ILC is a place where you can begin to explore your spiritual journey; it is also a place where you can grow in your faith and be equipped to live out your Christian faith each day.

Our Mission and Purpose

Faithful to Christ's call to be His modern day disciples, we follow in His steps, share His good news, make disciples in the next generation, and equip them to serve in His Kingdom.

ILC follows the Purpose-Driven model with five major congregational functions: membership (becoming part of God's community of faith) - maturity (Christian education and growth) - Ministry (serving in the Church and outside the Church walls) - mission (outreach) - and magnification (worship).
