WELCOME TO IMMANUEL!
We are glad you are here! At Immanuel, you don't have to dress up. You don't have to be any particular age. And please don't feel the need to pretend about anything. Immanuel Baptist is a place where God meets people just as they are. Come learn with us. Come worship with us. Come meet our staff and family.
Ask questions. Seek. We believe you will find what you're looking for. You can learn how to relate to God. You can experience Christian community. And here's the big thing--if you want--you can change.
Join us as we seek God together. Just come as you are.
At Immanuel, you will meet down-to-earth people who are all about following Christ. Our worship services are uplifting, our messages are practical, and our ministries are life-giving.
We laugh hard, love deeply, pray consistently, give generously, and serve wholeheartedly. We would love to meet you and have you become part of our Immanuel family.

At Immanuel, we're not just The Church when we're gathered. We're The Church when we're scattered as well. So while you're at work, school, play or at home, you can connect with other Immanuel people. We manage several online communities and invite you to participate.

We know it can feel overwhelming to visit a church for the first time. With that in mind, we want to answer a few questions you might have as you prepare to be a guest at Immanuel.
What are Immanuel's service times?
Every Sunday, we offer small groups for children, youth and adults from 9:15-10:15 AM. We offer a worship service for adults at 10:30 AM as well as a specially designed worship service for children at that same time. On Wednesday nights, at 6:15 PM, we offer programs for the whole family. One Sunday of each month, our elementary children participate with parents in the adult worship service.
What are Immanuel's services like?
Our environment is down to earth so you can feel comfortable to participate in the service at whatever level you choose. People of all ages, from all walks of life, and at all stages of spiritual development will be able to celebrate the life of Christ and connect with other followers of Christ. The worship service lasts approximately 70 minutes and includes times of celebration, moments of reflection and prayer, and insightful messages that will encourage and inspire you.
If you have recently become a Christ follower or are considering doing so, you will feel the freedom to take your next steps at your own pace as you attend each worship service. If you have been following Christ for years, you will have opportunities to deepen and strengthen your relationship with Him.
What are messages like?
The messages are Bible-based and presented with personal stories and humor. They are communicated in simplicity yet filled with wisdom and grace. Each sermon is specifically designed to meet you where you are in your spiritual development and help you take your next steps.
What kind of music can I expect at Immanuel?
Our worship team leads modern worship music mixed with occasional hymns set to contemporary music. We encourage the congregation to participate and experience the life and presence of God in an authentic way.
What do I do when I arrive for the worship service?
From the moment you arrive at Immanuel, we want you to feel welcome. When you arrive, you can head directly into the Worship Center. If you have 1st-6th grade children, you may check them in inside the Fellowship Center which is located across the breezeway from the Worship Center. If you have nursery, preschool, or kindergarten children, you may take them directly to the downstairs area of the Education Building where they will participate in age appropriate activities.
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable when you attend Immanuel, so you can wear whatever you normally wear. You'll see many styles of clothing, from casual to business professional.
What type of church is Immanuel?
Immanuel is a Southern Baptist Church that welcomes people from all church backgrounds or who have no church background.
What if I still have questions?
We encourage you to call our church office at 580-255-0467. Our office hours are Monday-Thursday 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM and Friday 8:00 AM-Noon.
God is the Creator and 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.
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
About the Bible
The Bible is God's Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God's creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin". This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
About Eternal Security
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot "lose" it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
