Currently we support 21 missionaries in many countries around the world. We give 18% of our budget to local and worldwide missions. We annually send mission teams to support our missionaries in their local fields. We have missions prayer services monthly and mission nights for our congregation to meet, fellowship with and encourage our missionaries when they are home (see calendar for details).
Visit our Missions Board (outside the Worship Center) for detailed information on our missionaires and their prayer letters.
We believe each Christian is personally accountable for carrying out God’s Plan.
Missions is not a special interest for a select group in our church-it is for all.
We also recognize that Emmanuel Baptist Church is corporately responsible for carrying out God’s plan for our local community, our country and the nations. We therefore commit ourselves to work together in a missions program that will be an appropriate, obedient response to God’s call to be involved in missions.
God intends to use His people as His ambassadors in calling men to Himself (2 Cor. 5:20). His followers have been charged to go (Matt. 28: 18-20) and to send (Rom. 10:13-15) so that the world may be redeemed. God’s heart for the world is clearly seen in Genesis 12:1-3, Isaiah 49:6, Acts 1:8 and Revelation 4:9,10.
