One of the friendliest and most pleasant of all churches in Bainbridge, Immanuel Baptist Church is a pleasure to both visit and become a member of, with a welcoming congregation and a warm, loving atmosphere.
Located on Dothan road, Immanuel Baptist Church has Sunday School services at 9:45 a.m., and morning worship services at 11:00 a.m.
Led by Pastor Rev. Tommy Willis, morning worship services are taken straight from the Bible and connected to the more modern world around us, bringing a new clarity to the morning message, making it a joy to listen to.
As one of the older churches of Bainbridge and Decatur County, Immanuel Baptist Church’s history had mostly disappeared into the ravages of time. Founded sometime in the 1950s, Immanuel Baptist Church has stood proud through the ages until now, the small church remaining a warm and welcoming home to all, through the years.
Though only a small church, Immanuel Baptist Church still has opportunities to both reach out to others in need around the community and fellowship together through the year.
Immanuel Baptist Church is the home of a food bank, available upon the request of the needy and struggling, and the church family comes together to feed the struggling families.
In late summer and autumn seasons, Immanuel Baptist Church plays host to both an annual homecoming for all the distant church members, or one-time church members, and a fellowship bar-b-que cookout contest for church members to participate in, bringing joy to the congregation.
