It has been said that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care! Here at EIBC, we care about you and your family. Our hearts are burdened for all the souls that live in the Colorado Springs area. We also have a burden for our men and women in uniform as well as our veterans that have served our country. It’s our desire that everyone would receive Jesus Christ as their Saviour and be discipled, growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The sermons preached at EIBC are Christ-centered, God-honoring, and from the King James Version of the Bible. We are committed to serving God and the needs of you and your family. Wherever you may be in your spiritual walk, at EIBC you will find a supportive family and a wealth of opportunities for personal growth. We invite you to come and allow God to work in your life through the preaching of His Word.

Pastor Tom Cooke holds a Graduate of Theology degree from Ambassador Baptist College. He and his wife Melissa, whom he married November 6, 1970, shared a burden for our military men and women. After joining forces with Armed Forces Baptist Missions in 2008 they knew the LORD had called them to Colorado Springs, CO., where in April of 2009 he became the first pastor of Emmanuel Independent Baptist Church which is close to Fort Carson. Prior to that he preached and helped Church’s in Ohio and West Virginia. He also served as a deacon in his sending Church in North Carolina. He and his wife Melissa have dedicated their lives to serving the LORD. Psalm 100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
