Ministries

There are a number of ministries available at Immanuel Baptist Church that help believers grow in their relationship with Christ. Each ministry is designed with these goals:

  1. To glorify God by the preaching and teaching of His word
  2. To encourage the believer to please God by obedience to God’s word
  3. To reach the community and the world with the gospel found in God’s word

Sunday School For All Ages

Each Sunday school class is designed to present the truths found in God’s word to children, teens, and adults. We use material published by Regular Baptist Press for elementary grades and bible studies for teens and adults.

Children – Immanuel has age-appropriate Sunday Schools for kids from infants through 6th grade. Kids learn about the Bible through songs, stories, and activities that help them grow.

Teens – Separate sessions are provided for Junior High and Senior High teens. Teens sing, and hear a practical message from the Word of God.

Adults – Pastor Burtch teaches through the Bible, various topics, or contemporary issues as the need arises.

Global Missions

We believe that God established the church, his visible representative, to preach and proclaim his word both locally as well as globally. We support a number of missionaries in fulfillment of this command found in Acts 1:18.

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

As part of the great commission given to the Church, we support the following missionaries all across the world:
