Welcome!

We are so glad that you have taken time out from your busy schedule to visit the Immanuel Baptist website.   We trust you will get a glimpse of what a church should really be like - a place where real people join together to find answers to life's issues and struggles.   As we study God's word and worship together we join in the process of understanding the depth of the unconditional love of God as revealed through his Son Jesus Christ.

Whether you are single, have a young family, are guiding teenagers, just became empty nesters, or are in your golden years, there is a place for you.   In all that we do at Immanuel we strive to be:

Building a Caring Community of Christ-Like Disciples for the Glory of God by Knowing, Growing, Serving, and Sharing Christ

Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." ( John 14:6)   In a world where there appears to be no absolutes, we want to be a church that calls people to a fervent relationship with Jesus Christ.   He is our rock and salvation.   As we get to know Him better and obey his teachings we will be able to glorify God and live victorious lives.   Please come join us.

News - December 12

Dear Immanuel Family,

What a joyous time is Christmas!  Over 2000 years ago, God dispatched the Son of the Trinity to earth to take on human form.  To do this, God chose a carpenter, Joseph and his wife, Mary, to be the parents of the Son of God.  The angel Gabriel approached Mary by saying, “Greetings, O favored one….” This greeting comes from the Greek word meaning “much grace.”  Mary was a righteous women favored by God, but she was a sinful person just like us in need of God’s grace.

Although she was not the Mother of God as some say, she was Jesus’ mother and the vessel by which “the Word became flesh.”  I love what Ephesians says – “He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things” (4:10) proving the pre-existence of Jesus.  The Lord God Almighty has no mother, since He has no beginning and no end (Genesis 1:1;Revelation 4:8).

On one occasion, Jesus was speaking and a woman in the crowd proclaimed,“Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts at which you nursed!” What a perfect segue for Jesus to declare that Mary was worthy of praise and adoration.  How did Jesus respond?  He said, ““Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”  Jesus Christ is the only human to ever deserve our worship.  The Bible says, “For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily” and that is worth celebrating this Christmas.

Immanuel Mobile App

Dear Immanuelites,

If you were in church yesterday, you heard about the new app that we have just created. In case you weren’t, it is free and available for you to download right now! It will work with almost any smart phone and tablet and there is a link below to help you get connected. You will need to know the password to your account so make sure to have that handy before you try to download it.

It is our desire that this app will allow you to stay plugged in with Immanuel. You will have sermons, newsletters, Facebook, Twitter, and more right at your fingertips. We also want to stay connected with you! The app allows us to send you direct notifications and these will be crucial when there is a service cancellation due to weather or to send you a reminder of big event.

Don’t have a smart phone or tablet? No worries! There is a web page you can visit that allows you to see all of the media we have on our app. See the link for this web page below.

Last, but not least, we hope you would be willing to share the app. Is there a co-worker, neighbor, classmate that you know that is interested in God but won’t go to a church? Maybe this app would allow them to hear the preaching of the Word for the first time.

As time goes on, we’ll continue to try to improve this app. We’re thankful for it, yet we understand this is just a tool. So may God use the resources within this app to encourage you and build you up that we, His people, might see our Father glorified as you grow in your walk with Him.

In Christ Alone,

The Immanuel Staff
