Emmanuel Christian Centre (ECC) is a church and charity in the North of England. As a member of the Evangelical Alliance and networked with Churches in Communities International, ECC is committed to the core values of 'love, community and honour'. Revd Darren Roy serves as the Senior Minister.
Our aim is to love God with all our heart, soul and mind (Mat. 22:37), and to love our neighbours as ourselves (Mat. 22:39). Our love for God is expressed through obedience (John 14:15) and our love for people is based upon His Word (Lev. 19:9-18).
We are a community that meets at ECC (Rom. 16:5), being salt and light to the community around us (Mat. 5:13-16). We aim to be a family (Heb. 2:11) which grows together as the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:27) and brings Jesus’ message to our town (Mat. 10:27).
We seek to show honour in every aspect of our lives. This means to honour God above all (Rev. 5:13), to honour authority (Rom. 13:1), to honour our leaders (1 Tim. 5:17), to honour each other (Rom. 12:10), to honour financially (Pro. 3:9), and to be vessels of honour (2 Tim. 2).
