Welcome

Welcome to Emmaus Lutheran Church

For over 90 years, Emmaus Lutheran Church has been a beacon in the San
Gabriel Community, opening its arms to people in need of finding Jesus Christ
as their personal savior.

WE ARE NOW IN THE SEASON OF PENTECOST:
The Church celebrates the Festival of Pentecost as the fulfillment and 
conclusion of the Easter season.  The name Pentecost, meaning "the fiftieth 
day". originally referred to the Jewish Festival of Weeks, the time of 
thanksgiving for first-fruits and the in gathering of the harvest.  The 
Christian Church retained the name to mark the completion of the fifty day 
period after Easter, and the first in gathering of believers into the 
Church.  On Pentecost, Christians commemorate the special outpouring of the 
Holy Spirit.

Luther's Small Catechism has this to say about the personal confession of 
faith for Pentecost:

"I believe that I cannot by my own reason or strength believe in Jesus 
Christ, my Lord, or come to Him, but the Holy Spirit has called me by the 
Gospel, enlightened me with His gifts, sanctified and kept me in the true 
faith.
In the same way He calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole 
Christian Church on earth, and keeps it with Jesus Christ in the one true 
faith.
In this Christian Church He daily and richly forgives all my sins and the 
sins of all believers.
On the Last Day He will raise me and all the dead, and give eternal life to 
me and all believers in Christ.
This is most certainly true."
