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.

Simply Christian Living

Life offers Christians daily opportunities to abandon Christian living, a life of faith and obedience to God. Rarely do Christians deny their confession of faith, but faithful living is another matter. Little by little behavior fails to produce Gospel fruit natural to a converted life. It’s a slow fade.

Renewing the mind by the Word of God is our only solution, as noted by Puritan Thomas Brooks. “There is, especially in times of great afflictions, temptations, desertions, fears, and doubts, a very great aptness and proneness in Christians to expect strange means rather than right means, and new means rather than old means, and invented means rather than appointed means, and to build their faith upon something other than the word.” (The Complete Words of Thomas Brooks, Vol. III, p. 263).

Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 3rd, in addition to our time of church prayer, we will inductively study Romans 12.9-21. There we find 12 marks of genuine Christianity. We will gather in the Mizpah room at 7:00 pm and in the sanctuary transept beginning Wednesday, Sept. 10th. Unless obligated to another IBC Wednesday ministry, I invite you to attend. All are welcome.

Brothers and Sisters, let’s live simply Christian lives.

-        Pastor Michael

Brazil Team

Please pray for David, Paul, Joy, Michael, Kristin and Matt as they travel to Sao Paulo in August to work with missionary Thomas Smoak and local pastor Dalvino on a church construction and community outreach project. If you would like to give to the financial expense of this missions trip, please designate your gift to the “Brazil Team.” Thank you for your support. We look forward to hearing the team’s report to the church on October 5.

 

Kisses from Katie

Kisses from Katie:  A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption may just possibly be the catalyst for a paradigm shift in your life.  Katie Davis is a young woman who was willing to serve Jesus in a foreign land, giving up all she knew and loved, to care for starving and sick children in Uganda.  She spoke from a burning heart to put into action the love of Christ that she heard about growing up as a child in Tennessee.  She sacrificed her comfort of upper middle class America, with all the trappings of a college education, sweet boyfriend, name-brand clothes, and a loving family around her for the sake of serving people who would be considered outcasts in any society-such as children with scabies and HIV.  She is spreading the Good News of Jesus by helping others, including adopting 13 children of her own as a single mother at the age of 22 years old.  She rescued these children from filthy conditions and most certain death.  The philosophy she espouses and promotes is that people who have not known love cannot really accept and understand the love of God unless they see what love really is in action.
