Next Steps

We know church isn't a spectator sport; but after you worship with a church on Sunday morning, it’s often hard to figure out what to do next. Below are some great Next Steps.

Discover Emmaus Lunch

Discover Emmaus is a free, no-obligation lunch offered several times a year to meet the church staff, learn more about the church, and ask questions. Discover Emmaus meets at 11:45am, immediately after the Sunday morning worship service. Childcare is provided with RSVP. 

Upcoming Discover Emmaus Dates:

  • Sunday, November 12th

Group Bible Study

Christianity is not simply a private or individual matter. God has always been at work to shape a group of people who will worship Him and live for Him. We need to learn from other Christians, who face struggles yet continue to seek after God. We want to help you connect with a group that matches your schedule and your stage in life.

Baptism

  • What is baptism? Baptism is a public display of faith, showing a person’s turn (repentance) from sin and the person’s trust in Jesus Christ for new life (salvation). The act of baptism is not what takes away a person’s sins; instead, the act of baptism is a powerful and public expression of how God takes away sin and makes us new when we turn from sin and trust in Jesus Christ.
  • Who can be baptized at Emmaus? If you have repented of sin and trusted completely and solely in Jesus Christ for salvation, you are a candidate for baptism. Baptism in our faith tradition is not for babies or toddlers, and baptism is not an attempt to become a better, religious person.
  • Can I be a church member at Emmaus without being baptized? Everyone is welcome to attend Bible studies at Emmaus and worship with us. However, Baptism is a requirement for Church Membership at Emmaus. If you have not been baptized as a follower of Jesus, we would be honored to talk with you and answer any questions about this next step.
  • Want to talk with someone about baptism? Call 405-691-6646 to set up a meeting with a pastor, email info@emmausokc.org, or write “Baptism,” along with your name and best contact information, on the Guest Card during a Worship Service and submit this card in the offering plate or at the Welcome Center.

Church Membership

  • What is Church Membership? Church membership is not like having a country club membership or having a VIP card at your favorite restaurant. Church membership is a covenant that Christians make with one another to live together in a particular place as the Body of Christ. Church membership is much more about what we can give, than what we get (though it does come with very important spiritual benefits).
  • Who can become a member of Emmaus?

1. Repented of Sin and Trusted in Christ Alone for Forgiveness and New Life

2. Baptized as a public display of being a Follower of Jesus

3. Committed to serving the Body of Christ and Pursuing a Life that displays to the world what it means to Follow Jesus

  • How can I become a member?

1. Attend the Emmaus Membership Training- This meeting is offered at various times throughout the year. You will hear more about the expectations of membership, how we desire to serve you, and how you can get involved in serving others.

2. Meet with a Staff member or Deacon- This is not an interview or test. It’s simply a chance for you to share about your story of coming to faith in Christ and how you have grown in following Him. (If you have not been baptized, the Staff member or Deacon will answer any questions you have about this requirement for membership.) Call 405-691-6646 or email info@emmausokc.org to set up this meeting.

3. Presented to the Church Family during a Worship Service- During the worship service, new members stand together (you won’t have to stand by yourself) with the rest of the church as we commit to serve Christ together.
