Emmanuel Christian Center, aka The Highly Favored and Victorious Church is a non denominational, God operated, Christ administered and Holy Ghost leading Church. Emmanuel Christian Center believes that we have been saved only by the grace of God and not of our works. We believe in the Bible and accept the Divine inspiration of the Scripture as the revealed Will of God. We also endorsed all the teachings contained in it. We also believe in Building A Church, Developing A Community, Expanding Services, and Impacting Lives one at a time.
Through divine calling, spiritual inspiration and manifestation of the power of God, Emmanuel Christian Center started in February of 2008. A vision God had revealed about a decade earlier. The first service started with about seven families. And ever since, God has been so faithful to us. He has been proving Himself as God of Grace and New Covenant to us. To the glory of God Almighty, no Sunday Service has ever been the same as the other. True to its name, Emmanuel Christian Center is both Evangelical and Missionary in nature, and within the past few years, God has blessed ECC with Evangelical/Outreach Ministry, Clothing Ministry, and Food Pantry Ministry. Lives have been touching and changing positively to the glory of God. To the glory of God our Father, ECC moved out of the living room to our own spacious rented sanctuary. We are believing God, The All Sufficient God for the provision of our own, all sufficient multi-purpose building. Since the inception of ECC God has blessed us with Ministries such as Real Anointed Women Ministry (RAW), Mighty Men of Valor(MMV), Youth Ministry, Living In Victory Everyday (#LIVE), Perfected Praise (Choir), Dance Ministry (Ordered Steps)
