Emmaus Bible Church is a community of believers just south of Omaha, Ne. Erik Raymond is the primary preaching pastor at Emmaus. Here you will find expository preaching that aims to unpack the central point of the passage while providing clear, practical and straight forward application. Our practice is to work through whole books of the Bible verse by verse and see Jesus as the unifying person and point of all the Scriptures (Luke 24.26-27).
