Thank you for visiting our website!
We hope your time spent on the Elizabeth Missionary Baptist Church website is informative and helpful.
Our church has a caring congregation that wants to share the love of Jesus with our local community.
The preaching, teaching and music at our church is centered on God's authoritative and infalliable Word, the Bible.
If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you as our guest.

The children of our church will be doing Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes a little differently this year. We would like to start collecting monthly donations of certain items. Details of each month's featured item will be shared with church members, and anyone who wants to participate can drop off items in collection boxes located in the side entry ways.
During the month of July, we will focus on collecting items for boys, ages 2-9. Suggested items include hot wheels cars, flashlights with extra batteries, flying items (kites, frisbees, foam and paper airplanes), coloring and activity books, self-inking stamps, small chalkboard with chalk, small plastic animals, balls, yo-yos, jacks, jump ropes, silly putty, mini checkers game, magnetic tic-tac-toe game, collapsible cup, plastic bowl or plate, fork and spoon.
Cash donations will still be accepted in November and, of course, any wishing to make their own shoeboxes are welcome and encouraged to do so. Thanks to all who helped our church send off 81 shoeboxes in 2015. For 2016, the children have set a goal to make at least 200 shoeboxes - "With God all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26)!
On Saturday, April 16, our children, youth, and high school Bible drillers participated in the regional drill in Coats, NC. All did a great job! We are so proud of them! They have worked hard this year to hide God's Word in their hearts.
Bible Drill is a Bible scripture memorization program. Children learn verses, key passages, and the books of the Bible. They are challenged to locate these scriptures in their Bible within a 10 second time block. Youth also learn verses, key passages, and the books of the Bible, as well as doctrinal scriptures. These older drillers are challenged to locate scripture in just 8 seconds.
In conjunction with Mrs. Jane and Friends Gospel Ministries, our church is excited to help share the Good News of Jesus with children through the Right Path Club, a Christian after-school club at Butler Avenue and Sunset Avenue Schools. The club meets every Thursday afternoon at Butler Avenue and every other Tuesday afternoon at Sunset Avenue. During club time, workers/volunteers tutor the children, feed them a snack, and share the Gospel with them. Our church is enjoying being a part of this ministry which reaches 100+ local kids every week. To learn more about Mrs. Jane and her ministry, please visit https://www.facebook.com/msjaneandfriends/ .
