Building Bridges

The Building Bridges to Our Community: "Here Am I, Send Me"  plan is the result of an extensive self-evaluation process and presents long and short-term goals for fulfilling the vision God has revealed to Immanuel Baptist Church. The plan is designed to move the church to higher levels of commitment and service to God and to our community.

The following goals, strategies, and timelines represent "the vision" for IBC as we look to the next two plus years of ministry in our community--immediate and beyond. We believe God's purpose for us here is to make disciples (outreach/ evangelism/ maturing believers), develop new leaders to serve the Lord in and through IBC, to study God's Word and worship Him more deeply and meaningfully, and to use our facilities to be a beacon of hope and grace to the south end of Elizabethtown. What follows is IBC's Vision Team's vision regarding God's purpose for us in these areas.
