What we seek to do:

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” — – Matthew 28:18-20

How we seek to do it:

What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. — -James 2:14-17

It’s the heart of Emmanuel Baptist Church to put our faith into action by meeting the needs of the people in our community and around the world. Rather than simply tell people about the life-changing love of Jesus, we want to show them by the way we serve them. Our faith inspires our work and it’s our prayer that our work would lay the foundations for new relationships, life-changing conversations, and ultimately, salvation in Christ for those we come in contact with.
