Equip ~ Encounter ~ Engage
Our Mission at Ives Memorial Baptist Church is to Know God, Grow in God, and Go for God!
We do this each week as we gather together to Encounter God through worship, Equip for life in small groups, and Engage the world as we go! (James 5:13-16, Eph. 4:11- 12, Matt. 28:19-20, Mk. 16:15). At IMBC, we desire to see transformed believers making an eternal difference one life at a time.
Our vision at IMBC is to be the church that is Gospel
Impacting, Generation Reaching, and Kingdom Stewarding.
We are a church whose worship of God is authentic, contagious, diverse, and encouraging, glorifying God while strengthening the lives of individuals and families for Christ.
. . . we are a church equipping families and individuals through Christ focused, biblically anchored teaching and preaching providing foundations for lifelong spiritual growth.
. . . we are a church reaching the heart of its community for Christ by meeting the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of its individuals and families.
Your Next Steps
1. Connect with us
No matter the reason you are here, we want to hear from you. Are
looking for a biblically sound Church to worship with? Are you struggling and seeking answers? Is there an opportunity for our Church to serve you? Let us know. Fill out our connect card, and we will reach out to help you anyway we can.
2. Worship With Us
Come and join us Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings as we gather to worship. Sunday mornings we start with meeting with our Small Groups/Sunday School Class at 9:30am, then gather back together for corporate worship at 11am. During the 11am service, there is a nursery for those 4 and under. We want families to worship together, so we are happy to have kids in our worship service. The sound of kids is a reminder of the future of our Church!
Wednesday evenings we have dinner together starting at 5:30pm to 6:30pm. We would love for you to be our guest. After dinner, we pray together. There is no obligation to participate. Sometimes the best way to grow is to listen to others pray. We will end the evening with Bible Study. Come for all of it, or stay for just a little. We believe Wednesday nights are a great way to truly get plugged into the life of the Church.
3. Grow With Us
Maybe Ives Memorial Baptist Church is starting to feel like home to you? We would love for you to go through our Discovery class. We would love for you to learn what it means to be an official member of our Church. It is a 4-week class taught by our elders during the Small Group hour. We believe it is important to be plugged into a Church, so even if IMBC is not for you, we will help you find a Church. We believe in One Church, not high membership numbers.
4. Serve With Us
Did you know God has gifted each one of His adopted children with a spiritual gift to help serve His kingdom? Each gift is like a body part and when every body part is working its assigned role you have a healthy Church. We want to help you realize and utilize your gift!
5. Go With US
You have encountered God through worship, equipped through Small Groups and Serving, now it is time to Go. Go spread the Gospel message while you are going through your life. Plant the Gospel message in the hearts of those you run into and water those you are mentoring and watch God give the growth.
