Iglesia Bautista Emmanuel
The vision of Emmanuel Baptist Church, located in El Salvador’s capital city of San Salvador, is to be a Christian, Evangelical, Baptist, and Ecumenical church committed to the cause of peace and justice in El Salvador. The church’s mission is to promote personal and community transformation through evangelism, education, and training of pastors and deacons to contribute to the construction of a more just and humane society in El Salvador.
One way this mission is achieved is through training farmers in crop diversification. This is working toward food security, implementation of new farming techniques that reduce the use of agricultural chemicals, ongoing training of community health workers, and working with children toward a culture of peace. The church works in four geographical areas of the country: Usulután, Cuscatlán, Sonsonate, and San Salvador.
