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 19th

Dear Immanuel family,

Yesterday I was invited over to my son’s house for dinner.  My granddaughter climbed up in my lap, looked up at me with those big blue eyes and then put her head down on my chest.  Although she can’t talk yet she was “communicating.”  It was one of those moments that happen on this side of heaven when we say, “It doesn’t get any better than this!”  It reminded me that some of the best gifts this Christmas will not be under the Christmas tree.

Certainly the greatest gift came that first Christmas.  Augustus’ decree sent everyone bustling back to their home towns for a census. The sleepy quaint town of Bethlehem was thriving with visitors who filled the streets and hotels to the max.  My mind can imagine the sounds and smells of food venders, people traveling on horseback or in ox carts, and even some like Mary and Joseph on donkeys.   To think that the creator of the universe stepped into time in such a lowly fashion is just beyond comprehension; an event largely unnoticed in Bethlehem except by a few shepherds and three wise men.

As Mary looked at those tiny hands, little did she know they would touch a leper’s open wound, wipe a widow’s tear, and be used to hold her son on Calvary’s cross.What a gift our Lord gave us.   We don’t have to wait for this gift.   “For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:17). The world received the greatest Gift ever: Jesus Christ.

Mary was given a gift – Jesus. 
The shepherds were told where to find the gift – Jesus.
The wise men came bringing gifts – to Jesus.
Will you receive the Gift – of Jesus?

If you haven’t open this gift yet, please do it now.   If you are interested see the attached “Romans Road.”

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
