Who We Are

We are a contemporary, non-traditional, come just as you are type church.  No ties, suits or any kind of formal type of dress is expected.  We pray, “God, if they are hurting…send them to us”.   We say, “Your brokenness is welcome here.”  We exist to fulfill the great commission by making disciples by SHARING the Good News of Jesus, CONNECTING believers to God and others, providing opportunities to MINISTER, and REPRODUCING DISCIPLES!

Our Journey

In the 60 plus years since its humble beginning, Emmanuel Baptist Church has thrived and impacted Greenville and surrounding communities for Christ.  As the church has grown, we have moved from a small lot on Hwy 1 to our current 100 acre campus to meet the growing demands of a thriving church.
For many years, EBC has had a dream of reaching people that no one else could or would reach.  God has honored that dream, and the result is a church consisting of people on a journey to wholeness, all the while leading others to a restored relationship with Jesus Christ.



Sunday services begin at 10:30 am.  You’ll be greeted with a smile as you enter Emmanuel.  Our information desk is available to help you with any questions you may have.


The music in our morning worship service is contemporary with a live band and choir!  We create an atmosphere that prepares us to experience God’s presence.


Our pastor, Eddie Painter, will share a biblical message designed to prepare and help people face life’s challenges and grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ in today’s world.
