Who We Are

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 22:37-39)

Emanuel means “God With Us” and that is who we are: a group of people who believe that God is with us in all we do and who try to live lives that proclaim that message. Emanuel has been part of the La Habra and Brea communities since its founding in 1960 and we continue to be a beacon of God’s love in our neighborhood.

Our church is in the Pacifica Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. As members of the ELCA, we confess the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Emanuel: God With Us
