Immanuel Baptist Church

Immanuel Baptist Church began in 1886 as a German Baptist Church of farmers and merchants who immigrated to Texas.  It is on their solid foundation of faith that we continue sharing God's amazing love to the community around us and to the world through missions.

We believe our God and his Good News for humanity has never changed, but we also know our culture has.  We seek to be relevant but not trivial, speaking the truth in love.

We are WELCOMING to all, believing our God to be the only one who can truly TRANSFORM us into the people and for the purpose for which he made us.

Our Biblical Purpose: What God Has Called Us To Do
As children of God, 
members of the body of Christ, 
and the temple of the Holy Spirit, 
we believe that God has called us
  • To Glorify GOD by loving and worshiping Him
We express our love for God in worship by adoring, praising, celebrating, thanking and acknowledging Him, and by offering Him ourselves and our prayers of confession, petition, and intercession.
This means that we are to be LOVERS and WORSHIPERS of GOD.
  • To Build Up ONE ANOTHER toward Christ-likeness
We express our love for one another in the family of faith by teaching God’s Word, meeting each other’s needs, promoting unity in our church body, and sharing life together in fellowship.
This means that we are to be ENCOURAGERS and SERVANTS of one another.
  • To Share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the WORLD 
We express our love for the lost both by our words of grace and by our deeds of mercy as well as by our prayers of intercessionThis means that we are to be His WITNESSES.
Our Core Values: What God Has Taught Us To Be Important 
THE WORD OF GOD serves as our authoritative guide for truth and life, and therefore, we highly value the preaching and teaching of the Bible.
THE WORSHIP OF GOD is the eternal and indispensable activity of our church as we continually respond to Him with faith and obedience.
PRAYER is communication with God in which we offer praise, adoration, thanksgiving, confession, petition, and intercession to the Father through the Son in the Spirit.
FELLOWSHIP is sharing life together and building each other up by meeting each other’s needs and serving one another so that we become increasingly Christ-like. 
DISCIPLESHIP AND TRAINING is crucial in developing fully devoted followers of Jesus and in equipping our members for the work of service.
REACHING OUT  to our community and beyond with the love of God is sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and ministering to the needs of people.
