Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “Are You Sure You’re Saved?” based on I John 5:11-13:

  • Many people have some sort of “religious experience” and think they are saved.
  • Many people are led to believe that walking down an aisle or getting baptized makes them saved.
  • John wrote that we can be sure we’re saved if you:
    • have a hatred of sin
    • desire to obey God’s law
    • have a love for the brethren
    • have a desire to be holy
    • have the internal witness of the Holy Spirit.
  • Our assurance of salvation is not based on experience, a prayer, or a ceremony.
  • True Biblical assurance is to be based on the presence of these real and observable measures in our lives.

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!
