What can I expect at a worship service?
Our purpose in worship services at IMI is to bring glory to God and to study His Word. This is accomplished through the various parts of the service:
SERMON: Through a detailed study of a portion of the Bible, we seek to better understand God’s character, plan, and purpose through teaching sound doctrine.
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:16close2 Timothy 3:16 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness. . . . (ESV)
MUSIC: God is praised and worshipped in traditional and contemporary hymns, through both instrumental and vocal music.
O come, let us sing for joy to the LORD,Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Psalm 95:1closePsalm 95:1
95:1 Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! (ESV)
PRAYER: It is our privilege to bring praise, thanksgiving, confession and requests to God in times of prayer. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Phillipians 4:6
OFFERING: Through tithes and offerings,we support the work of our church as well as missions work in our community and around the world.
This portion of the service is intended only for those who consider IMI their “church home”- donations from our guest are appreciated.
Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7close2 Corinthians 9:7 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (ESV)
COMMUNION: Offered on the 1st Sunday of each month.
