Do not fear, for I am with you.
— Isaiah 41:10
The El Salvador Mission Group focuses on our covenant relationship with Iglesia Bautista Emmanuel in San Salvador, El Salvador. Watts Street members partner with Emmanuel to build homes for the poor, sponsor school children, participate in dialogues about faith and social justice, and develop relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ at Emmanuel.
In the late 1980s, the City of Durham began a Sister City relationship with the City of Kostroma Russia, a city on the banks of Volga River, 250 miles northeast of Moscow. We were invited to establish a “Sister Church” relationship with the Evangelical Baptist Church in Kostroma.
