Missions and Outreach

We value Missions Ministry, Education, and Support at Emmanuel based on Jesus’ example and command in his Great Commission found in Matthew 28: 18-20: 

“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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

11% percent of every offering goes to support a number of missionaries, local ministries, and the ministries of the West Virginia Baptist Convention.
