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 - October 18

Dear Immanuel family,

One of the highlights of the year at Immanuel is our Missions Conference.  Many of the previous Missions Conferences have challenged us to send and support missionaries that go to the ends of the earth to preach the gospel.  While this is still a tremendous need, we felt the Lord leading us to focus this year’s conference on “Reaching Richmond.”  We trust that the conference will encourage and equip you to get involved in ministries right here in our backyard.

Immanuel Baptist is strategically located in the City of Richmond.  God has given us the responsibility to be a redemptive force among the people who live around us.  In the 2010 Census the following statistics describe the 204,200 persons who live in the City of Richmond:  Median age: 32, African Am – 50.6%, Caucasian – 40.8%, Hispanic – 6.3%, and Asian – 2.3%,  Households with children: Two parent family – 51%, Mother only – 40%, & Dad only – 9%.

We look forward to how the Lord will challenge us during this next week with the spiritual and physical needs around us.  “The truth that has been missed is that God does much of what He does predicted on what His church is or is not doing….When the church fails to act in concert with God’s prescribed agenda, then God often chooses to postpone His active involvement until His people are prepared to respond.” (Tony Evans)  May the Lord give us open hearts and boldness to respond.



Men's Group-Oct 15-Right In The Eye-One King Leads To Another

Greetings Men – As I considered our session this week, I was reminded of the many “sayings” my Mom used to use on me when I was an adolescent and teenager. She seldom told me to do or not do something. But she was an expert at taking a common “saying”, and adding her own twist to it so she could make her point to me, and hoped that I would “get it” and do the right thing. Now many of these “sayings”, I did not understand until I was about 30 years old and had kids of my own. Nevertheless, those sayings, for some reason or another, stuck with me. Here are a couple of examples, as well as the “application” she wanted me to understand:
