The Emmanuel Chin Baptist Church (ECBC) is a distinct denomination of Chin Christians from Myanmar that comes together as one united church to join faith with action. The ECBC is an immigrant church that welcomes all people and denominations.
Our church is affiliated with Chin Baptist Churches USA and American Baptist Churches Ohio. We work alongside more than five mission partners in Myanmar and Bangladesh. Our vision is primarily to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to the Chin people in USA and in Myanmar. As an immigrant church from Myanmar, we continue to ceaselessly fight injustices and corruptions such as human rights abuses, political and social oppressions, racial discrimination, prostitution, pornography, human trafficking, drug trafficking, gun violence, alcohol consumption, gambling and lottery in Myanmar and USA. We instill our vision into our children and young adults in an effort to produce new leaders for a changing world.
We believe in the Trinity-the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, a God that is still speaking and is all-loving and inclusive. We are a church that uses Lai holh (Hakha Chin) as the church official language. We are a church that welcomes and accepts everyone as they are, despite their personal history. We are a church where Jesus the Savior meets the sick, the oppressed, the wicked, the sinners and the poor, and where together we are growing a just and peaceful world for the next generations to come.
