What We Believe
The Emmanuel Baptist Church Aid Association is a Christian organization. We believe, affirm our place, our trust in the central Christian belief that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord. We believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Sone, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and buried. He descended to the place of the dead. The third day He rose from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits to the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead. Furthermore, we recognize that we are called by God to be His representatives and His presence in the world. The Emmanuel Baptist Church Aid Association incorporates Christian principles and Biblical Standards. In both our professional and personal lives, we seek to honor God by living according to Biblical standards for Christian character and moral conduct.
