About Immanuel Church

Immanuel Church is seeking to be a blessing to the city of Forest Lake. We have been a congregation since 1981, and we are looking to grow. Like all churches, we were once a church plant. We are seeking to renew our roots of church planting. That doesn’t mean we are starting over, but it does mean we are seeking to change our questions. Who needs to hear about Jesus? Where are they? How do we get to know them? How do we become the type of people to draw others to Jesus Christ? These are the questions that are leading us into new territory. If you are interested in growing in your faith, if you are excited to join a team that wants to grow, Immanuel Church is that kind of opportunity.

As the Lead Pastor, one of my personal goals is to create an environment for those in ministry to succeed. I want my people to work hard and not being afraid of failure. If you never fail, you never grow. So much of following Jesus is putting ourselves in a position to see God move. That's what we want at Immanuel Church.

Pastor Matthew Ragain
