International Bible Church
500 Midvale Avenue, Upper Darby, PA 19082
Deacon Roger Bantawan, Interim Pastor
It has its beginnings as an outreach from its mother church, the South Jersey Bible Church International (SJBCI), now pastored by Rev. Ding Guevarra. Started by Rev. Roger Manao and it was sponsored by North Penn Baptist Church (NPBC) of Souderton, PA. In 1993, the Bible Study groups organized as the Filipino Bible Fellowship, and was formally affiliated with the Greater Philadelphia Baptist Association (GPBA) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). The Crossroads Community Church in Upper Darby gladly opened its facilities to the host the church on Sunday afternoons for Worship Services. The group increased in number with other nationalities attending, necessitating the change of name of the mission to International Bible Fellowship (IBF). Later, the name was changed International Bible Church and incorporated in the State of Pennsylvania.
Members of IBC went around the area recently to distribute flyers and invitations as part of the evangelistic this summer. Everybody had a good time . Pastor Rick Butler: “I praise God for Doug, Matt and Debbie of the Youth With A Mission Evangelism Training Workshop and Outreach! Thank God for using IBC members for BREAKING THROUGH fear in order to share Christ with the lost in Upper Darby! This is just the beginning and the BEST TO COME!! So stay tune for the next training and outreach and GET INVOLVED for Christ.”
Today IBC holds its Sunday Services at 500 Midvale Road Upper Darby, PA. Dedicated men and women called by the Lord Jesus serve their Congregation during its weekly activities.
The future is bright with God’s blessings and the opportunities to share the Gospel is limitless. We thank you for your support to IBC and looking forward to partner with the Council on activities and projects that can benefit our people and our communities.
IBC is set to face the future with bright enthusiasm of sharing the Gospel starting with a community outreach program initiated by Rev. Williams; and to become witnesses in Upper Darby and beyond; to families and other internationals with the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ
With our Church Motto: “Changing Lives with the Love of Jesus Christ”, we give God glory and honor!
