And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” – Romans 12:2 NASB
Welcome to Emmanuel!
We are so glad that you have looked us up, and we hope that you will join us this week! 
We don’t care where you’re at or where you’ve come from; we just want to show you the love of Christ. 
We gather for worship each Sunday at 10:30am in our worship center. if you’d like, you can also join us a little earlier at 9:30am in our family life center. Grab a cup of coffee and get plugged in to one of our small group bible studies.  
Our mission as a church is Loving God, Serving people, and Reaching our community. We don’t care what you look like or how you dress. We want to be the church to you and to this city. 
We hope to see you this week!

We are so excited to announce that Emmanuel has called Dwayne Doyle to be the next pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church!

He is a graduate of Mississippi College (B.A. Religious Education), and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky (Master of Divinity: Missions and World Evangelism).
He and his wife Melissa have 3 children; David, Darcy, and Daisy. Bro. Dwayne has been serving as the intentional interim pastor at Springfield Southern Baptist Church in Springfield, Illinois.

We are BACK worshiping in person!

It is our desire to see everyone stay safe and healthy, so we have implemented some social distancing guidelines. All events, other than our 10:30am Sunday Worship Gathering, that we have planned have been cancelled or pushed to a later date. You can catch our Sunday evening worship and Wednesday ReNew on our Facebook page.

In addition to meeting in person on Sundays, we will be broadcasting Emmanuel Worship LIVE on Facebook, YouTube, and the church website  at 10:30am every Sunday.

We do realize that this is stressful time for many. During this time, we respectfully ask that you be faithful in your giving as you are able. Online giving is available on the church website, just click on the “Giving” tab at the top of the page!

We would like to thank you for your patience during this time of uncertainty. As we continue forward we ask that you continue to pray for our church, our community, our nation and each other. We know that God is at work in all of this. Thank you for your service to the Kingdom.
