The Glorious Church (part 2)

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on November 5th, 2022

One of the foundations for seeing the church become like the one God has destined us for is embracing a Biblical view that sees the church as a community. In this message we talk about Koinonia, the Greek word often translated as fellowship or community. The early church in Jerusalem was devoted to koinonia and therefore was filled with life, joy, and spiritual power. The result was that many people were added to the church. Being a community or koinonia is a necessary first step for us to be the church God has called us to be.




The Glorious Church (part 1)

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on October 23rd, 2022

This is the introduction to a new series entitled “The Glorious Church.” Ephesians 5:27 describes God’s plan for the Church. “That He would present to Himself the church in all her glory….having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.” The Church today certainly isn’t near to where God has destined her. In this series, we will look at what the Church should look like, and then examine how we will get there. And yes, there is a cost to being the Church God has called us to be!




All That God Had Prepared for Those Who Love Him

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on April 23rd, 2022

We conclude our series in this session with an overview of all that we have talked about in the past 15 sessions. We have covered a lot in detail and it can be easy to forget the bigger picture. This overview should convince us, and motivate us, that in light of all that God has prepared for us (see I Corinthians 2:9), we have been called to a very important work here in our lifetime!

Our Life in Review

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on April 23rd, 2022

Today we look at how we live our lives here on earth in light of all that God has prepared for us. We are told in I Corinthians 3 that we are to be careful how we build because all our deeds and works will be tested and judged by fire. Are we building with gold, silver, and precious stones….or are we building with wood, straw, and hay? Are we storing up treasure here on earth, or are we stored up treasure in heaven. These are hard questions we must ask ourselves! If you'd like to know more about Eternal Life, Mike has written a book, Words of Eternal Life, which can be ordered on Kindle or in paperback below.

Looking for the City

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on April 23rd, 2022

In this life we all pass through various trials, disappointments, times of confusion, and even suffering. In this message we take a look at an inside view of how people like Abraham, Moses, and others viewed the difficulties they passed through. We focus on the insights found in Hebrews 11. We see that their truest desire was for a city, a heavenly city, whose architect and builder is God. It was that vision of that future city that kept them going and enabled them to do the things they were called to do in this life. We, too, must have that view of the New Heaven and the New Earth (or the New Jerusalem) before us. We must see ourselves as pilgrims and strangers in this land.

What Will we do for All Eternity?

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on April 23rd, 2022

Have you ever wondered what we will be doing for all of eternity? We are not told all the details, but we can see from the Scriptures that the New Earth/New Heaven will be filled with activity and enjoyment. Being bored certainly will not happen. This future world where we live forever will be far supported in every way over this present world. As we are told in I Corinthians 2:9…..we cannot even begin to imagine or comprehend all that God has prepared for us.

A Peek Into the Next World

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on March 26th, 2022

The prophet Joel spoke of God pouring out His Spirit upon all mankind in the last days through dreams and visions. God is doing this around the world today in unprecedented ways. In this message we look at a few examples of God revealing Himself…in dreams and visions, and giving us a glimpse into this other world that one day we will call home.

New Heaven and New Earth

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on March 26th, 2022

We now turn our attention to the New Heaven and New Earth when God makes all things new. This message is an introduction to this very important and often misunderstood topic. Revelation 20-21, the last two chapters of the Bible, talk of this ultimate destination for Christians. Actually, it is more than just a destination. It is our inheritance that is spoken of throughout both the Old Testament and New Testament.

Matthew 25 Parables

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on March 26th, 2022

In this message we look at the last two parables found in Matthew 25. The Parable of the Talents and the Parable of the Sheep and Goats, along with the Parable of the Ten Virgins (discussed in the previous session) are a trilogy of parables that Jesus gave His disciples concerning how we are to prepare and be ready for His coming. Together, the messages found here can instruct us on what is important in life. We see what Jesus is calling for often does not line up with our priorities.

The Parable of the 10 Virgins

Posted in DefaultTag, English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on March 26th, 2022

In this message we look at the Parable of the Ten Virgins in Matthew 25. Once again, this is a parable Jesus gave to His disciples concerning being ready and alert for His return. The admonition is clear. We are to keep our lamps lit. and with oil, until the very end. But what does this mean? The lesson is very practical and is extremely important for us to hear.
