Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “A Matter of Faith” based on Matthew 8:5-13:

  • The church has dropped the ball in the faith department.
  • The church looks too much like the world to make an impact for God.
  • If we want to change the world, we must live by faith.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday Morning’s sermon, “God Has  a Plan” based on Jeremiah 29:11-13:

  • We try to make our own plans, but usually just end up making a mess.

Sunday’s Coming!

Posted by Rick on May 8, 2009

If you were arrested and accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?  Many like to call themselves “Christian”, but, Sunday morning, we’ll examine together and answer the question, “What is a Christian?” based on Acts 11:19-26.

Sunday evening, we’ll talk about “Tooting Your Own Horn” based on Matthew 6:1-6.

Immediately following the evening service, we’ll have a Special “Called” Business Meeting to discuss the opportunity of co-sponsoring a new Indian Mission here in Wagoner.  We will partner with First Indian Baptist Church in Muskogee and the new work will use our facilities.

What an exciting time to be  a part of God’s Work at Immanuel Southern!

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Fireproof Faith” based on Daniel 3:13-31:

  • Hannaniah, Mishael, and Azariah were faced with obedience to God or compromise to save their hide.
  • Rather than compromise, they trusted God to save them.
  • They had decided that even IF God chose to not save them, they weren’t going to bow to the idol.
  • We won’t typically face those types of decisions because we will have already compromised.
  • We face the decision between obedience and compromise a hundred times a day.
  • We must be faithful to God and trust His way.
