Emanuel Haynes was born in Robstown, Texas on July 16, 1936 to the parents Robert and Angeline Haynes. He attended school in Robstown, Texas. He had a great love for history and classical music. After high school graduation, he attended Delmar Junior College to major in architectural draftsman. Emanuel, like so many other young men, received a draft notice from the United States Army. Once enlisted, he served proudly for his country. During his tour of duty, he was led to Christ by a fellow serviceman. Emanuel realized that being baptized at the age of twelve did not save him. By accepting Christ as his personal Savior prove to truly be a life changing experience in his life, and the life of many.

With a new found love for Christ, Emanuel's direction had changed. He no longer searched for self gain, he sought, kingdom fame. He now had a hunger for missions and a drive to get on the mission field, which led him to Japan. After saturating himself in the culture, he returned to the United States and to Robstown. Emanuel was inspired to attend Western Bible Institute in Denver, Colorado where he graduated with a Bible major. After graduation, he then went to Cedine Bible Camp in Tennessee where he volunteered as a camp leader. Upon visiting Carver Bible College in Atlanta, Georgia, he learned of the need for a home missionary in Homestead, Florida.

Feeling God's call to the mission field, he joined Missionary Gospel Fellowship based out of Turlock, California. Emanuel began ministering among the migrant workers and was able to reach and share the gospel with many. Seeing such a great need, only added fuel to Emanuel's desire to serve. As the result he started his first church. Faith Bible Church in Homestead, Florida was born. Now they had a minister ready to make a difference. He also visited the sugar cane fields in Florida and evangelized among many Jamaicans. At that moment he realized the need to go to Jamaica and teach the Jamaicans to evangelize among themselves, even in the cane fields.

Shortly thereafter, Emanuel was introduced to his beautiful wife, Shirley Ann Huff by mutual friends, John and Earlene McNeal of Atlanta, Georgia. After a short courtship, the couple married and traveled on deputation. They lived in Homestead, Florida before leaving for Jamaica. In Jamaica, Emanuel began a church work and school. Feeling the need for a family, God gave them a daughter. Esther became the light of his life. After several years in Jamaica, Emanuel, Shirley, and Esther returned to the United States.

Emanuel served one school year at Carver Bible College after returning to the States. He was inspired to start his own Bible institute to prepare others in Christian service. As a result of this inspiration, the Haynes family moved by faith to Cedar Creek, Texas and began Go Ye Bible Institute. His family increased by adding another daughter, Sarah Ann (his princess) and son, Emanuel Junior. For many years he served as Founder and President of Go Ye Bible Institute until the late 90's. Again his family grew with the addition of his baseball loving son, Samuel David. Then with a double blessing of boys, Robert and Anthony made his family complete. Emanuel continued to preach and teach the gospel in the Bastrop and Austin area for many years until 2004. He and his wife, Shirley moved to Middleburg, Florida where he continued his Christian service as a Bible teacher until his death.
