  • Many people keep their distance from God.
  • Some keep their distance because they are afraid of God.
  • Some keep their distance because they prefer their sinful lifestyle.
  • God calls us to Him.
  • God is approachable.
  • God has made the way (through Jesus Christ) for us to be reconciled to Him.

Sunday’s Coming!

Posted by Rick on January 16, 2009

Join us this Sunday at Immanuel Southern when we take a look at “God’s Bail-Out Plan” based on Acts 4:8-12.  If the government thinks that throwing a lot of money at the economy will fix our problems, imagine how much better God’s plan to fix our bad spiritual condition must be!

Sunday evening, we’ll take a look at how important it is to realize that the church must function 7 days a week in the lives of believers.  The sermon, “The Church Has Left the Building” will help us see what we need to do!

Invite your family and friends to Sunday School!  They’ll be glad you did!

  • The Star of Bethlehem led the Magi to Jesus.
  • It allowed them to worship Jesus.
  • It allowed them to present their gifts, but leave with the wealth of the knowledge of the newborn king.
  • It allowed them to have wisdom from God, inasmuch as they obeyed His command in a dream.

  • Like the Christmas Star, we are to lead others to Jesus, so that they, too, might worship Him.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday’s sermon, “Christmas Boxes” based on Luke 1:26-38:

  • Gabriel was sent by God to tell Mary that she had been chosen to bear His son
  • Mary was surprised but consented
  • When Joseph and Mary got to Bethlehem, there was no room for them with anyone so they had to stay in the stable
  • The first “box” was the manger; Jesus was wrapped in cloths and lying in it.
  • The second “box” was the gift of the Magi
  • The third “box” was the Garden Tomb.  It was borrowed, because it wasn’t going to be used for very long.
  • The gift is still available today and has your name written on it.
  • Won’t you open your heart to Jesus?

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday Morning’s sermon, “I Am the Truth” based on John 14:6 and John 3.

  • Truth isn’t dependent upon a situation or circumstance.
  • Truth is truth.  Just because you decide to call a cow’s tail a “leg” doesn’t make it a leg.  It is still a tail.
  • Jesus said that He was “the Truth”.
  • Jesus explained to Nicodemus what He meant when He said, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but have ever lasting life.”
  • If we understand this truth, it will transform our lives and our eternities!

You can listen to the sermon here or by clicking on the audio player below.

There is no Sunday evening sermon, as we had a special guest speaker whose presentation we aren’t able to present on the internet due to security concerns.  He spoke about his service with the US Army in Iraq and gave his testimony as to how God is working there among our military and among the Iraqis.  It was a truly inspirational service.

Posted by Rick on October 15, 2008

What a wonderful revival!  It was such a blessing to have Bro Bill Green leading our music and Bro Ernie Perkins bringing God’s message!

We had a time of fellowship at lunch each day and we are already looking forward to next year’s Sr. Adult Revival which will be hosted by Eastern Heights Baptist Church in Muskogee!

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Borrowing Worry” based on Matthew 6:25-34)

  • Jesus said, “Do not worry”.  That is a command.
  • We worry when we take our eyes off of God and keep them on our troubles.
  • God knows what we need.  That might be different than what we want.
  • It isn’t about you.  It is about God.
  • Worry is the interest we pay when we borrow from tomorrow’s problems.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday Morning’s sermon, “A Lesson in Humility” based on Luke 14:7-14:

  • Jesus is THE model for humility
  • A servant cannot be greater than their master, and Jesus humbled himself completely
  • Don’t choose a place of honor; you may be asked to vacate it for someone else
  • Choose a place of humility; you might be asked to ‘move up’
  • Do you want to be great in God’s kingdom?  Be a servant.
  • Pick the jobs no one else wants to do.  Pick the people that one one else wants to be around
  • Humble yourself and God will lift you up
