"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
Growing in the love of Jesus Christ is paramount in our church. We place great emphasis on Missions, Evangelism, Bible Study, Prayer, Praise, and Worship. Our belief is that Disciples at Emmanuel Baptist Church should go beyond a mere surface faith and make sure that their lives are in line with the will of God, seeking to have a Faith Forward approach in Ministry, possessing a Kingdom mentality. A membership mentality must be transitioned to a discipleship lifestyle.
Our goal is to be Disciples of Jesus Christ and not just Members of a local church. We serve a global God and that is why we must be visionary, proactive, and progressive in our approach to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is a vibrant and expansive Ministry that continues to reach higher and higher in the name of the Lord.
Every time we enter Emmanuel’s Sanctuary we experience the power of God and that is evidenced when Cynics become Seekers, Seekers become Believers and Believers becomes Achievers. It is extremely clear that “God is doing great things at EBC!”
Emmanuel Baptist Church seeks to minister to the entire Body of Christ, as our church is extremely diverse and has relevant ministries for all age groups. At the core of everything we do is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your prayers, presence, and participation in that which God has called us to do, because we know that this is a special church that is filled with the love of the Lord. Our prayer for you is that the God of all grace anoints you with fresh oil and His precious Spirit illuminates His Word as you seek Him. May He empower you to effectively communicate to others the vibrant hope that He has given you to persevere the struggles that you have overcome and continue to overcome.
Salvation(to be saved) is the GIFT that God wants to give to each of us. To receive this gift, you only have to believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins and was resurrected. By accepting the gift of salvation, you are promised to live in heaven (like Jesus) and eternally with God. You are also promised to have the Holy Spirit, to guide you as you build this new relationship with God.
STAY STRONG AND KEEP THE FAITH!!!
