History of IBC
A History of God at Work.

In 1985 a small, but dedicated body of believers meeting in a home for prayer, Bible study and ministry felt the need for a bible believing and teaching community church.  The early church met in the former buildings of Greendale School, Ellison Moon Funeral Home and Homestead School and back to a member’s home while searching for a permanent location.  After much prayer and searching, God led us to our “home” on Georgetown Road where 2 acres of property were purchased.
We broke ground and began construction in 1995, but more than a building was being built.  God used this time to grow the ministry and our faith and unity as a church body.  Members sacrificially self-funded the building and the majority of the work was done by volunteer members of the church from the ages of 5 years old to 75 years old.  The Lord blessed us with so many suppliers from the community who donated their time and/or materials to help with the building of this neighborhood church.  
Finally on Palm Sunday, 1996, we met for our first services in our new building.  This loving, sacrificial, giving congregation is committed to loving God more fully, growing together as Christ’s followers and to reaching our neighbors and the world with the life-changing message of Christ’s love and power.
