Our greatest desire is to bring glory to God by seeing people become disciples who love Jesus Christ. We believe the church is God's mechanism for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in the world. To join with Christ in accomplish this task we desire to connect people to Jesus Christ and His church, to help them grow in their love and obedience to Christ and to serve Christ, the church and the world around them.
We dream of a church that impacts Glasgow by the quality of disciples it produces. We envision helping all our people - new believers as well as established ones - in becoming fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. We see Immanuel Baptist Church becoming a church that builds lives for spiritual impact! Spiritual impact is not based on what a church does, but is a result of what church members are.
Creating environments where people can connect, grow, and serve:
* Connecting to Jesus and other Christians
* Growing spiritually
* Serve others in order that they too might become fully devoted
Membership at Immanuel
Immanuel Baptist Church is a community of faith committed to connecting with God and caring for others. If you desire to join with us and will be supportive of the beliefs, fellowship, and mission of our church, we warmly invite you to become a member. Here are the three steps to becoming a member:
Present yourself for membership during any Worship Service when the invitation is given at the end of the message. Our Pastor will invite those who desire to become members of Immanuel to come to the front of the Sanctuary. A minister or deacon will greet you and counsel you in your decision.
Express your desire for membership through one of the following means:
Profession of faith
If you have never received Jesus as Savior and Lord and/or never publicly confessed Him, you will be given an opportunity to do so. After your decision has been confirmed, an appointment will be made for your baptism at IBC.
Transfer of membership from another Southern Baptist Church
If you are currently a member of another Southern Baptist Church, we will receive you as a member upon promise of a letter from that church. IBC will contact that church to notify them of your decision and request your letter.
Statement of faith
If you know in your heart that you have previously experienced salvation by receiving Jesus as Savior and Lord, we will be happy to receive you. It will be necessary for you to be baptized at Immanuel if you have never been baptized by immersion after your salvation experience or if you were baptized in a church which holds a different view of salvation, baptism, or eternal security than IBC.
Attend our Discover IBC Class for new members.
This is a course that teaches you who we are as a church, where we are going and how God has gifted you to be a part of Immanuel. The course is offered frequently throughout the year.
After you've completed these steps, we will joyfully receive you as a member of Immanuel Baptist Church and you will begin to fully enjoy the benefits and blessings of being a part of our family of friends!
