Immanuel Baptist Church in Lebanon, TN John Hunn, Senior Pastor Welcome to Immanuel! The invitation of Jesus Christ to the whole world is to come find faith hope and love in Him. All of us here at Immanuel would like you to know that we are committed to being partners with Jesus on that mission. We want to help you grow in your faith...we want to help you discover the hope and joy that are in Jesus...and to experience His everlasting love, everyday. Immanuel Baptist Church is a member of the Southern Baptist Convention and affirms the following statements as our common theological framework. All that we do in our planning, programming and proclamation is a result of these things which we believe.
that there is one God, manifest in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit that Jesus is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, was wholly God and wholly man, lived a sinless life, died as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sins of mankind, was buried, arose bodily from the grave, and ascended into heaven; in the literal, imminent return of Jesus Christ to earth; that mankind fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and that all men are sinners in need of salvation; that salvation is a gift given through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; that every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ; that those persons who die in their sins spend eternity in Hell and those persons who die with their sins forgiven spend eternity in Heaven; that baptism is in obedience to the command of Christ and is by immersion after salvation. that the church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the head; that each believer has direct access to God through the Lord Jesus Christ * in the separation of church and state, but not in the separation of God and government.
