CRESTVIEW — Emmanuel Baptist Church is participating in Secret Church, national event that includes a live simulcast on April 29.

It includes an intense, 6-hour bible study and prayer for Christian "brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who still have not heard the gospel," the EBC website states.
