A thankful church in Paris.

Worshiping Jesus.

Trusting the Bible.

Believing the gospel.

Loving the city.


Vision Statement

Emmanuel International Church is committed to providing English language ministry to glorify God in the culturally rich and global region of Paris. Out of grateful hearts that have been transformed by Him both individually and as a community, we worship Jesus believing that he died for our sins and rose again in triumph over death.
We are committed to the witness of the Bible, believing it is completely trustworthy and sufficient for teaching us about God and ourselves. This commitment motivates us to grow together in Christ and equips us for every good work.
Therefore, we strive to love our city and our world, seeking to bring them this precious gospel because of the peace and redemption that it brings.

Distinctives

EIC IS UNITED IN ITS ...
1.
Diversity

We are a church that celebrates the diversity of people who attend, differences that include national, cultural, economic and linguistical backgrounds.

2.
CULTURE

We are a church that shares a common “international” culture. The diversity of many backgrounds coming together creates a God-glorifying international flavor that is rooted in gospel belief.

3.
LANGUAGE

We are a church that is proud to offer worship in the English language. We recognize that many move to France without yet speaking French. We also recognize that many people feel comfortable worshiping God in English. We see that one of our main roles in our city is to offer a gospel-centered church for this population.

4.
CITY

We are proud to be a Paris region church. We embrace France, the French people, and the beautiful region of Paris that is home for us. We work alongside other French churches and missions in order to seek the peace of the city where God has placed us.
