Who are we?
We are like Bereans Acts 17:11 who search out things to see if they are true rightly dividing the word of truth. Silence can be sinful, so we lift up the truth in love and denounce the deceivers in love. One could hardly say that false teachers find anonymity in the pages of God’s Word either. Jesus ( Revelation 2:20), Paul (1 Timothy 1:19–20 Tim 4.14 ), 2 Timothy 4:14 ), and John, ( 3 John 1:9–10) were all more than willing to name names. Of course Romans 16:17 is not talking about witch hunts, but it does highlight the responsibility of Christian leaders to identify, expose, and reject false teachers wherever and whenever they appear.
The word “milk” in the above quote (Greek gala) means the basic, elemental teachings of Christianity first learned by new believers according to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of the Old and New Testaments. The word “meat” in 1 Corinthians 3:1-3 is from the Greek word “Broma”. Its’ Strong’s number is G1033. It means the deeper, more complete teachings of God’s Word.Get out your steak knife and get ready for some spiritual sirloin! Let’s grow up together and sink our teeth into the deeper things of God’s wisdom.
Cotton candy preaching works against itself. Whatever methodology a pastor works from, his goal is the same: to see people grow in their faith. The problem is, this kind of preaching doesn’t do that. It tickles the ears, maybe gives a warm fuzzy, but it doesn’t lead to heart change.
AMAZING research and everything is summed up right here. Every Bible believing Christian should hear this. I pray that you would have open minds and be teachable. Test all things. Prove all things. Study this out for yourself. PLEASE don’t be lazy in your study. Us Bereans search out things to see if they are true or false. Especially in these last days where deception is viciously strong and abounding everywhere! STUDY, STUDY, STUDY! Acts 17:11

After Jesus’ resurrection He made several visits to His disciples. Twice, while the disciples were gathered together, Jesus came and stood among them. What was remarkable about this event?

Emmanuel Baptist Community
God's door is never locked and neither is ours. The Emmanuel Baptist Community, is strong and growing and we are of one body..."In summary, 1 Corinthians 12:13). Local churches who follow biblical doctrine of Jesus Christ are gatherings of members of the universal church. Born again Christians are members of the universal church who can fully apply the “body” principles of 1 Corinthians chapter 12: encouraging, teaching, and building one another up in the knowledge and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
