Who Are We? 

Glorify God. Make Disciples.

Immanuel Baptist Church exists to glorify God by making disciples who live Gospel centered lives through worship, service, and missions in authentic community.


Immanuel has been loving and serving the people of Shawnee, Oklahoma since 1929. With a handful of devoted and sacrificial Christians, Immanuel secured property on Main Street and went on to build a historic and unique building. The committed congregation survived even the trying times of the Great Depression and World War II, watching Shawnee grow and change.


Through the leadership of many gifted pastors and church leaders Immanuel grew to become the largest Southern Baptist church in Shawnee. In need of space and with the heart to reach people, the church moved to its current location on 45th street in 2008. The new facility is a blessing and Immanuel’s commitment to reach the community with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ grows deeper still. Immanuel now offers three worship services intent on changing lives through the hearing of the gospel each and every week.
