SERVICE  礼拜

The true identity of people of God is firstly related to service. For Christians, the service is not only offered in a limited time and space on a special day but in a whole life process offering “the bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God” as “spiritual act of worship.”

神百姓的真正身份首先是和礼拜有关的。基督徒就是向神献上礼拜的人。礼拜的意义不能随意地诠释。根据使徒保罗,礼拜不单单是在特定的时间和地点或者特定的日子献上敬拜,而是需要在生命的每一刻,“将身体献上当作活祭,成为圣洁蒙神喜悦的祭物”,是“属灵敬拜的艺术”。

Evangelism & Outreach  传福音和外展

In Jesus’ Great Commission, He said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15) All the believers are asked to follow what Jesus commanded at the end of His ministry on earth.

耶稣的大使命中说到,“你们往普天下去,传福音给万民听。”(马可福音16:15)所有信徒都需要服从耶稣在世上工作的最后时刻,吩咐他们去做的事。

Systematic Bible Study  系统性的圣经学习

As Christians, we believe that the Bible is the roadmap that guides us through this life. As most of us who have ever attempted self-study of the Bible can attest to, its golden lessons are sometimes clouded by our lack of understanding.

身为基督徒,我们相信圣经就是指引我们生活的导航图。我们多数曾经尝试自己去学习圣经的人来说都知道,很多黄金般宝贵的教导都是因为我们的不理解而被遮盖起来的。

Bible School  圣经学校

Learning the Bible is not only for pastors or seminary students. The Word of God says: “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” (1 Peter 3:15)

学习圣经并不单单是牧者和神学生要做的事。神的话语说:“有人问你们心中盼望的缘由,就要常作准备。”(彼得前书3:15)这句话是对所有信徒说的,因为我们经常需要面对来自自己或者外界对基督信仰的提问,质疑以及误解。

Cell Groups  细胞小组

In Christian life, fellowship among brothers, sisters in Christ is a joy of God’s blessing. At Immanuel, cell groups serve as the ministry that initiates various fellowship events and provides the tracks of many different fellowship groups to exist with a diversity of activities according to their common interests.

在基督徒生命里,与弟兄姐妹之间的团契是神的祝福里带给我们的喜乐。在以马内利社区教会,细胞小组事工的存在是为了组织许多不同的团契活动,让更多不同形式的小组得以形成。按组员的共同兴趣,安排多样化的团契聚会。

PRAYER  祷告

Prayer is the very means of coming closer to God. It is a way for us to deeply experience God’s healing and restoration. Through unceasing prayers, it mediates the work of the Holy Spirit and hopes for healing to be brought to the many wounded souls.

祷告是亲近神重要的渠道,能让我们更深地经历神的医治和恢复。通过不断祷告可以促成圣灵的工作,是许多受伤灵魂得到医治的盼望。
