What a joy to be a part of this church! My husband and I visited other churches in the area when we moved here in 2008, but once we visited EMBC, we knew we had found the place God wanted us. We're so thankful for the unhindered preaching of God's word, bringing about conviction of our sin and a desire to grow to be more Christ-like every day. There are so many places to serve, which is one of the things we were excited to find. If you're looking to be merely a spectator in a church that preaches only feel-good messages, this isn't the church for you. Prepare to be convicted by the Holy Spirit through God's word, to grow in your daily walk with Christ, and to be encouraged to serve, both in the church and in the community. We're so thankful to be at EMBC!

East Memorial Baptist Church is an extraordinary body of believers! The Pastor preaches well-prepared, well-studied lessons from God's word and doesn't add to or take away from God's word. Not too formal, exciting and energetic worship time. GREAT YOUTH GROUP!! College group is small but still amazing! Anyone looking for a solid-born-again-Christ-following-community-loving church; East Memorial Baptist Church is the place for you.

I am most thankful to be part of this church because of the straightforward preaching of God's Word. When we first attended, I immediately sensed the commitment to faithful preaching and teaching of the Bible.Some are focused on the new facility being not like a church, but I really like the cost effective use of the facility for school and church. Everyone does an amazing job at prepping for both uses each week while not sacrificing one for the other much at all. We use both! People were very friendly to us when we visited over a year ago. Since then we became members with kids in almost every age group. After a short time they all felt a part of their group with wonderful and caring role models as leaders. Some highlights have been choir tour, church camp, vacation Bible school and Discipleship Now for the teens. . Come visit us!

I visited this church one time with my wife. The pastor said he didn't recognize us and spoke with us outside of the sanctuary. He was a very kind person, and seemed easy to talk to. The worship experience consisted of about 20 minutes of music/prayer/other stuff, and about 50 minutes of sermon. The worship experience felt like it was centered around the pastor. His sermon seemed a bit disjointed, hopping around from idea to idea. He also seemed more interested in dictating to us the right and wrong ways to live than anything else. There was no sense of hope, comfort, encouragement, or inspiration for me in his sermon or the rest of the service.

Wonderful church with a friendly caring spirit. It's youth program and AWANA is the best in the county. We have been members for over 10 years since we moved to Prattville. We visited several different churches and this was the perfect fit, especially if you have children. The Pastor preaches hard, he doesn't mince words and delivers the Word of God accurately and without apology. He will touch on issues that most 'lite' churches will just as soon aviod. There are numerous places to serve and they are constantly looking for lay people to fill important slots. In fact, they've asked me to teach an adult Sunday School. But don't come here with a 'What's in it for ME' attitude or expect that you must be consulted before any and all decisions are made because you will be sorely dissapointed, that's what the staff is for and I'm OK with that.

The church provides everything except your money. IT DOES NOT FEEL LIKE A SMALL CHURCH--not that big churches are bad. The difference in this case is that everything is done by professional staff--very little reliance on lay people; ie., little opportunties for spritual growth. Folks have to sometimes be pulled from their comfort zones in order to grow. This church misses the point of service. You also get the impression the pastor "owns" the church. Loyality is great but you don't get the impression that the pastor is a servant to the church but rather everyone is accountable to him. Baptist tradition of congregational democracy is not a strong point at this church--it's more of a dictatorship. We left for these very reasons...maybe its for you but at least consider the points and evaluate them objectively for youself.

My family and I have been members of EMBC since 2000. It is a large church with a small church atmosphere. The people are all friendly and caring. We are a conservative congregation that loves the Lord and believes the Bible. We are led by a group of ministers that preach objectively from The Bible. Our church offers MANY different programs for people of all ages. However, we are really focused on the children and youth. We believe that they are SO important and need to see adults who love The Lord and lead by example!
