ABOUT US

OUR HISTORY

A Place of Grace

Emmanuel Baptist Church was founded in 1978 by Pastor Walt Zimmerman in Manchester NH. Pastor Z, as he is still referred to today many years now after his passing, was a member of “The Greatest Generation”. He was a WWII hero and a missionary to the Nursing Homes of New England, providing hope and comfort to many in their twilight years. He finally settled down and planted Emmanuel, where he would serve as her lead pastor until 1994. The vision that Pastor Z had for Emmanuel still continues today.

TO BE "AS HE IS IN THIS WORLD"

Bless God, Bless Others, Be the Blessing is our motto and a summary of our strategy built on three simple goals.

Bless God. We want to bring glory to God and make Him smile. The Bible teaches us that we need to love Him first most and best, that we need to live our lives to His glory. At Emmanuel this is the first objective. Will this bless God? From our worship to our generosity to our service we seek to bless God.

Bless Others. Jesus lived to bless others, and particularly the church. Paul teaches in Galatians that we are to look for opportunities to bless especially those who are part of the household of faith. This includes our ministries within the body, such as small groups, fellowships and training events.

Be the Blessing. This is where we take all that we are learning and live it out in the world. From missions, to helping out in our community with projects or having a positive gospel presence at Christmas events, Old Home Days, we seek to be the hands, feet, heart and mind of Christ. This is where we join in the mission of Jesus to take the gospel to all people.

WE BELIEVE

Follow the link below to an abbreviated Statement of Our Faith.  We believe that the Bible has been given as a gift to the world and the church and that it is just as relevant today as when it was first written.  The Bible is a supernatural book and is the sole authority for Faith and the pratice of that Faith.

OUR PASTORAL STAFF

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ. At Emmanuel we believe strongly in the “plurality of elders” as taught in the New Testament, with a “ruling elder” who is first among equals.  This provides accountability for the ruling elder who is our lead pastor, as well as encouragement and mutual discipleship among our leaders. The following people are these elders.  Coming alongside these men is a team of over 20 other men and women that by the help of the Holy Spirit lead this church.
