What Is the Gospel?

The word “gospel” means “good news.” Here at EBC, we delight to know and share the best news in the world, which can be best understood in four parts.

Part 1: God

The gospel—this good news—begins with the message that God is our creator and has made everything, including us, for His glory.

Listen to a sermon about this
This is where the gospel message begins: with the God who made us.

Part 2: Us

And yet you and I have chosen to sin against God by rebelling against Him and worshipping the things God has made more than God Himself.

Our sin has earned God’s judgement. We experience God’s judgement in so much of the brokenness and dysfunction we experience in our world today, and, apart from God’s mercy, we will experience His wrath fully when Jesus returns to judge the living and the dead.

Listen to a sermon about this
As we understand the gospel better, we must come to grips with who we are and what our problem is.

Part 3: Jesus

But God is full of love, and He has provided a way for His justice to be satisfied and for His mercy to flow to us. He sent His only son, Jesus Christ, who lived a perfect life and died on the cross in our place. In His death, Jesus took the punishment of our sins upon Himself and satisfied God’s justice fully. Three days later, He rose from the dead, conquering death itself, and securing for us the reality of eternal life.

What did Jesus do to make the gospel "good news"?

Part 4: Our Response

There is nothing we can do to earn this salvation. Jesus earned it for us, freely paying for it all in our place, and God offers it to us as a free gift. All we “do” is let go of our idols and treasured sins, and reach up to receive this gift with empty hands, trusting in Jesus and all that He has done. The Bible calls this response “repentance” and “faith,” and it is a work of God in our hearts.

Listen to a sermon about this
If Jesus has paid it all, then what do we need to "do" to be saved?

If you have never trusted Jesus, you can do so today—even right now! Please contact us if we can help you better understand the gospel and what it means to follow Jesus.

Sharing the Gospel with Others

If you would like more help understanding the gospel so as to share it with others more confidently, the following sermon and blog post may be helpful to you.

The resurrection is the capstone of the gospel message.


Men's Breakfast

Men’s Breakfasts

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.”

(1 Corinthians 16:13)

As men at EBC, we are always looking for ways to help each other be the kind of men that God calls us to be. One way we do this is Men’s Breakfasts.

On the first Saturday of each month, we gather in the gym at 8:30 am for food, conversation, and some time in God’s word. We’re usually wrapped up by 10:00. There is no minimum age—future men are very welcome.

If you’re able to bring a few dollars to help cover the cost of food, that’s always appreciated.

Hope to see you at our next gathering!

Who We Are

Welcome to Emmanuel Baptist Church! We’re located in Nipawin, SK, at Tyndall Ave & 3rd St N. Our Sunday morning service starts at 10:30 am, but you can come any time after 9:30 for a warm cup of coffee and some good conversation.

“Emmanuel” means “God with us,” and we really believe that this is true. Because God sent his son Jesus to die for our sins, we can know Him as our Father and be a part of His family. Nothing would bring us more joy than to help you know God in this way.

We are a part of a bigger family of churches known as the Baptist General Conference of Canada.

What We Believe

We believe in…

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without doctrinal, historical, or factual error in the original manuscripts, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

We believe there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons; that these are equal in every divine perfection, and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence and redemption.

We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of each person; that He hears and answers prayers, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus.

We believe in Jesus Christ, existing eternally as God’s Son. In His incarnation He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, led a sinless life, performed miracles and taught with authority. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death for the sins of all people, His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His perpetual intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to earth.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who was sent by the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. We believe that God has given to believers spiritual gifts according to I Corinthians 12, 13, 14, Romans 12 and Ephesians 4.

We believe that angels are a distinct order of created spiritual beings; that they can appear in human form; that good angels minister to human beings and serve God as special messengers; that Satan, a fallen angel, and his evil angels whom he leads, exercise great but limited evil power in the world, and will suffer final defeat at the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Triune God created everything – both physical and spiritual – out of nothing. We believe God created human beings, male and female, in His own image and likeness and therefore with unique, intrinsic worth from conception to natural death.

We believe Adam and Eve experienced perfect relationship with their Creator and were appointed stewards of God’s originally good creation. We believe they sinned by choosing to disobey God and thereby brought death to the human race.

We believe that all people are sinners by nature and by choice, and are therefore under condemnation. We believe that those who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as their Savior are regenerated by the Holy Spirit, and become new creations in Christ Jesus, but that the old nature is not eradicated.

We believe in the universal church, the living spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a community of believers, baptized on a credible profession of faith in Jesus Christ, and associated for worship, ministry and fellowship. We believe that the mission of the church is to bring the good news of Jesus Christ into our lost world.

We believe that Christians should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others; that their conduct should be blameless before the world; that they should be faithful stewards of their possessions; and that they should seek to realize for themselves and others the full stature of maturity in Christ.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We practice Christian Baptism as the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the triune God. We believe that the Lord’s Supper was instituted by Christ in order to remember His death. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and celebrated until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that every person is directly responsible to God. Believers should be free to covenant together in autonomous congregations without undue interference from any ecclesiastical or government authority. While respecting the authority of government we affirm the responsibility of the church to speak into the public forum. In matters of disagreement between Scripture and government, we believe we must obey God.

We believe in the personal visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom.  We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal felicity of the righteous, and the endless suffering of the wicked.

Small Groups

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”

(Hebrews 10:24-25)

Church is so much more than a Sunday morning gathering. Church is who we are. That’s why we love small groups at EBC, which allow us to connect throughout the week and be the church together.

Most of our small groups will meet in the evening, once per week, for about two hours. There’ll be time to talk, discuss how we can apply that week’s sermon to our lives, and pray for each other.

If you’re a part of the EBC family, we’d love for you to join a small group. Just head over to our “Contact” page and fill out the communication form—and make sure to check off “I’d like to join a small group.” You’ll then have the option to let us know your availability and other info which will help us place you in just the right small group.
