Our Story

A community of believers from diverse backgrounds who find common ground in their love of Jesus.

Emmanuel church was planted over 30 years ago by a small group of faithful families who desired to have a Pentecostal expression established in West Kelowna. With support from Evangel Church in Kelowna, Emmanuel began to take shape. Within a few years of its inception, the congregation took a step of faith to purchase the land where the church presently resides on Hebert Road.

The church has expanded and grown over the years, and has recently completed a new auditorium with a vision to provide not only a worship space for the growing congregation, but also to be a benefit to the growing community of West Kelowna.

Emmanuel is quite eclectic. Although Pentecostal, it is made up of people from many different church experiences and backgrounds. This is reflected in our approach to the Christian faith. We want to connect people to Jesus at all stages of life!

The city we found ourselves in, West Kelowna, is a unique community in that it is rural and agricultural, and right next door to its big cousin, Kelowna.  It is well known as a tourist and retirement destination.
