History and ministry
Launhardt, Evangelicals in Addis Ababa, p. 155:
“The Emmanuel Baptist Church was founded in 1962 by Glen Cain, a former SIM missionary [initially in the Sidama area]. In 1965, a building providing class room facilities for three hundred and forty adult night school students and and a church hall, seating four hundred and fifty persons, was built in the Arat Kilo area. The Representative of the Emmanuel Baptist Church stated in 1972 that they had one hundred and thirty-five baptised members and church attendance was around two hundred and eighty adults [Footnote 542: Survey by the author in June 1972.].”
Don W. Brown, Baptist Bible Fellowship International, in New York Times, April 7, 1982:
“Emmanuel Baptist Church at Arat Kilo in Addis Ababa, was closed in November 1981. Before that closing, Emmanuel Baptist attracted some 2,000 worshipers -members and visitors – each Sunday. To accommodate them, two services were conducted. Now the members are denied their building, which is being remodeled by the Ethiopian Government for other than church purposes. The building was constructed in 1962 at a cost of more than $150,000, contributed by churches of the Baptist Bible Fellowship in the U.S.A. It has five stories, with a large auditorium and Sunday school classrooms attached.”
