A growing church in Crestview, Florida.


Every Christ-follower is called to belong to the local church. Membership is about more than attending church meetings. Members commit to joining a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are called to a higher degree of responsibility, service and sacrifice. Our staff and leaders commit to assist our members with care, counsel, prayer and teaching.

We hope that, as God leads, you make a covenant to be part of our church family.
The first step in membership is attending Starting Point.  Starting Point is a fun (we love fun!), casual environment where you will have the chance to meet staff and leaders as we tell what it means to belong to Emmanuel. Starting Point includes an overview of the vision and values of Emmanuel and an introduction to serving, giving and biblical community.  You will also hear the unique heartbeat of Emmanuel and learn how you can merge more deeply into how God is moving here.

Becoming a member is a prayerful process, so at the end of Starting Point, there is no ‘high-pressure sale!’ While attending Starting Point is necessary for membership, attending Starting Point does not obligate you to membership. We will simply explain the membership process and let you know how you may respond.

For your convenience, Starting Point is offered approximately every six weeks on Sunday mornings, so activities and programming for children are available. Sign-up at the Information Center or via a Connection Card in worship on Sunday or by email :: questions@ebccrestview.com.

Starting Point is a requirement in the membership process. Once you have attended Starting Point, you can submit a hard copy of the membership form you receive there, or you can fill it out online.
