Mission Statement Endorsed by Congregation

At our Business Meeting on June 24, our community of faith unanimously endorsed this mission statement: "The mission of Immanuel Baptist Church is to share the good news of Jesus Christ, to deepen our love for God and others, to fully engage our neighbor, and to wholeheartedly serve those on the margins of society." Adoption of this mission statement brings the second phase of the work of Partners in Renewal to a close. The first phase culminated with the adoption of our vision statement in September 2014: "God is calling Immanuel Baptist Church to practice the radical, compassionate discipleship taught by Jesus Christ."

The third and final phase of this process of discernment is to create a mission action plan that will flesh out how we will live out our mission statement. On Sunday, July 19, you are invited to join Partners in Renewal for a churchwide luncheon after worship when we will discuss this strategy. Reservations are required for the meal; contact the office by July 15 to make your reservation.
