THE GREAT COMMISSION is the marching orders for the New Testament Church. In Acts 1:8 we read...
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.
From this verse we see that a Church should start locally and work outward in an effort to reach the world with the Gospel message. At Emmanuel, we have many ministries that are designed to spread the Gospel in our "Jerusalem" of Bloomingdale and the greater Kingsport area. But we also support other mission works both in the US and around the world. Listed below are the missionaries that we prayerfully and financially support in our effort to fulfill the Great Commission.
