Here is our Order of Worship

A Call to Worship link

God of Hope,
we come into your presence this morning
with confidence that you will meet us here.
Where there is sadness, bring joy;
Where there is tiredness, bring refreshment;
Where there is despair, bring a renewed sense of hope.
Let this place be a sanctuary,
a safe haven for us,
a home for holy words and songs and prayers
as we devote ourselves to you.
We pray this in Jesus’ name

The Nicene Creed: An Affirmation of Our Faith link (History)

I BELIEVE in one God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth, And of all things visible and invisible:

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God;
Begotten of his Father before all worlds,
God of God, Light of Light, Very God of very God; Begotten, not made;
Being of one substance with the Father; By whom all things were made:
Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven,
And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man:
And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried:
And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures: And ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of the Father:
And he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the quick and the dead;
Whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, The Lord, and Giver of Life,
Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son;
Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified;
Who spake by the Prophets:
And I believe one Catholic and Apostolic Church:
I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins:
And I look for the Resurrection of the dead: And the Life of the world to come.

Scripture Reading: Romans 7:7 (NASB Bible Gateway)

What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? May it never be! On the contrary, I would not have come to know sin except through the Law; for I would not have known about coveting if the Law had not said, “You shall not covet.”

We are excited to share a message by Justin Jackson, who serves as the Ministry Administration Pastor at Emmanuel Enid. He oversees each of the ministries taking place at the church. Justin grew up in Hollis, OK. His education took him to Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, where he played baseball and earned a theology degree. He moved to Enid in January, 2005 as the area representative of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. After seven years in Enid, Justin moved to Edmond and worked for the FCA there for four years. Justin and his wife Lindsey are back in Enid and are excited about serving as the Ministry Administration Pastor here at Emmanuel Enid.

The Lord’s Prayer (traditional)

Taken from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, 1662 link

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
For ever and ever.


The Lord bless you, and keep you;

The Lord make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;

The Lord lift up His countenance on you,

And give you peace.

Numbers 6:24-26 (NASB)

  1. Good job done by Justin Jackson in his first sermon at Enid, and, consequently, here at EChurch. I enjoyed hearing about his life and family and seeing a young man speak about his life as a Christian.

    Something in the discussion about law and gospel reminded me of this article, by Jon Zens.

    Also, I found myself singing “Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved’. Or put another way, ‘twas the gospel that taught my heart to fear, and the gospel my fears relieved….

    Though that is a view which I have come to only in the last twenty or so years. Before that it was “Emotional manipulation taught my heart to fear, the gospel relieved it and then the church teachers systematically manipulated me to Try Hard enough to earn that gift I had been given.” Try setting that to music! .LOL

    Anyway, all the best to Justin. He has a great teacher down there in OK!
