About God

God is the Creator and the Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. As God of Love, He desires to show us grace by engaging us in a personal relationship.

Our Beliefs

Immanuel Baptist Church is a self-governed local congregation affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. A basic explanation of Southern Baptist beliefs may be found here.  While unashamed of our Baptist affiliation, please understand that we are Christ-followers first, who lock arms with others who believe “faith alone in Christ alone” for salvation, to reach a lost and dying world.

Over the years people have used many things to help summarize their beliefs, like the Apostles' Creed, or the Five Solas of the Reformation, or more recently a denominational summary like the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.  Others don’t look for a summary, and just use Scripture itself to state their beliefs. No matter how you summarize your beliefs, we invite you to put your Biblical beliefs into practice here, and join us on our mission to reach the nations for the glory of God.  In our pastor’s own words, we desire to be a people who are “madly in love with Jesus” who “make disciples that make more disciples.”

If you happen to be searching for what you really believe, we invite you to come and hear about God’s great rescue plan, that gives great comfort and purpose to those who embrace it.
