We exist to see people come to Christ and grow in Christ

A relationship with Jesus is not just about going to heaven when we die. It’s about leading a full, abundant life right here and now. We are a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.

Where We Come From

Emmanuel Church opened its doors in the living room of Darrel & Pauline Towles in Whiteland on Easter 1977 with 17 people. After 29 years of growth and faithful service, Pastor Jim Devney retired in 2006, and Danny Anderson, then High School Pastor, transitioned to the role of Lead Pastor. Through a commitment to relevant and authentic teaching, Emmanuel Church continues to see lives transformed each and every week.

Where We're Headed

What’s the bottom line? We are on a relentless pursuit of those in our lives who do not have a relationship with Jesus. We want to change the world, one community at a time. As part of this vision, Emmanuel extended beyond our Greenwood, Indiana roots and became a multi-site church with the launch of our Banta (2013) and Franklin (2015) campuses. Simply put, we are one church in multiple locations. And now with the implementation of our Online Campus in 2018, our opportunity to reach others is limitless!

What This Means For You

No matter who you are or where you're from, you are welcome at Emmanuel Church. We pray every day that people just like you would walk through our doors or engage with us online. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we’re ready to come alongside you to help you take your next step.
