We believe in One God who created the universe and everything in it. (Isaiah 43: 10-13; Isaiah 44: 24; Deut. 6: 4; 1 Corinthians 8: 4-6)
We believe that God became flesh, in Jesus Christ. So He is One with God. (John 1:1-5; John 1:14-18; Isaiah 9: 6-7; John 17:20-23; John 17:5; John 16:27-30; John 14:7-11;)
We believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. In saying this, We believe Mary was a virgin when she 'gave birth'. (Luke 1: 26-38)
We believe Jesus died on the Cross for our sins, so that we may be forgiven. And that He was bodily raised to life on the third day. Luke 23: 33-34; Luke 24: 1-7; Isaiah 53: 3-7)
We believe we have 'eternal life' by accepting God's plan of Salvation which is accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. (1 John 5: 10-12; Romans 10:9; Acts 4:11-12; Colossians 2:6; Ephesians 3:16-19; Ephesians 5:18; 1 Timothy 2:5)
We believe in being 'baptized', after receiving Jesus as Lord and Savior. We do not believe that water baptism saves a person. Salvation is
a free gift by accepting Jesus. (Romans 6: 3-4; Matthew 28: 19; Ephesians 2: 8-10)
We believe in the work of the Holy Spirit through ordinary people, and that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are relevant for today. (1 Corinthians 12, John 1: 33; Acts 1: 5-9, 2: 1-18; 1 Cor. 14: 2-4, 14-19)
We believe that the word of God (the Bible) is the only authority, it is inspired by the Holy Spirit, and is the only truth that we must live by. We do not believe or accept any other teachings and beliefs, there is only 'One Truth'. (2 Timothy 3: 16-17; Hebrews 4: 12; 1 Peter 1: 25; Mark 13: 31)
We believe that Jesus Christ will come back again to gather up His Church. (Acts 1: 11; 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18)
We believe there is a real 'Heaven' and a real 'Hell'. And where we spend our eternity is determined by which one we choose while we're alive. There are no second chances after 'Death'. (Revelation 21: 22-27, 20: 10-15; Hebrews 9: 27-28)
All baptized Christians who approach communion reverently, regardless of their current ecclesiastical affiliation, may take communion, we practice open communion.
EMMI follows the teaching of Christ that dictates that all are welcome.
EMMI welcomes all people, regardless of gender, marital status, political beliefs, or sexual orientation, to participate in the life and Sacraments of the Church; asking only moral conduct which is appropriate for all Christians.
EMMI does not impose mandatory celibacy on its clergy.
We welcome all who come to us in the Name of the Lord.
We believe that all communities of faith honour and worship the one God. We extend to them the warmest of bonds of Love and Fellowship. They are our brothers and sisters in our common God. (cf. Mark 9:40).
EMMI has several official affiliations with other organizations and independent Catholic churches.
Apostolic Succession has been transmitted to EMMI bishops by the laying of hands during episcopal consecrations performed by bishops previously consecrated within the teaching succession from the Apostles.
