Our hope is to make you feel welcome and at home!

What can I expect from the services at IBC?

You will experience a friendly group of people just like you. The atmosphere will be uplifting and cheerful. The music will be a blend of hymns and modern worship. The messages are Biblical and applicable to life. 

What clothes should I wear?

Come as you are! IBC is full of people in jeans and polo shirts. Our people are interested in you, not your clothes.

What door should I enter?

Try any door and someone will be there to greet you and help you find your way!

What about my kids?

We love children at IBC! We have paid nursery workers at all of our services ready to care for your children up to 4 years old. If you have older children, we have age appropriate ministries for them at the same time as the adults including Children's Church for elementary age during the 11:00am service.

What We Believe

About God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are co-equal and are one God. The Son, being Jesus Christ, co-equal with the Father, lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the grave three days later and ascended into heaven to sit at the right hand of God the Father. He will return someday to reign as King of Kings.

about the bible

The Bible is God's Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it has salvation for its end and is truth without any mixture of error.

about salvation

Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works but only by trusting Jesus Christ as God's gift of forgiveness. We must confess our sins and repent and turn from our selfish life and turn to Jesus in faith that we may be saved. Once you are saved, you are saved for eternity and if you have been genuinely saved, you cannot lose your salvation. It is maintained by grace and the power of God.

About the church

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local body of baptized believers who are associated by their common faith and fellowship with Jesus. The local church observes two ordinances: (1) baptism and (2) the Lord's Supper. Baptism is by full immersion in water symbolizing the death and resurrection to new life Jesus brings. The Lord's Supper is a symbolic act of obedience in remember the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ. We remember his death and anticipate his coming.
