Welcome to International Bible Church in Jurbise Belgium
Hello, and thank you for visiting the International Bible Church (IBC) of Jurbise, Belgium website. Our congregation is made up of people from a variety of nationalities, cultures, languages, and religious backgrounds. What unites our community is the person of Jesus Christ. In Christ the differences of color and culture enrich us rather than divide us!
IBC is a caring congregation committed to the mission of helping people become faithful Christ followers. Here you will find a warm welcome and ample opportunity to grow in your relationship with Jesus and His multi-national church. Welcome!
David Stevens - Pastor
Jesus Christ commanded us: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20
Some of the disciples to whom Jesus gave this commandment were full of questions and doubts (Matthew 28:17). maybe you're like that! IBC is a place where you can bring your honest questions and doubts and seek answers from God's Word, the Bible. Whether you're not yet a believer, young in the faith or a seasoned Christian, our goal is to become faithful followers of Jesus Christ and to help others do the same.
What We Believe
The Bible is revealed truth from God without any error and relevant to our daily lives.
There is one God who always has and always will exist in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is God the Son who, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, gave his life for the salvation of the world.
The forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are assured to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord.
Baptism is an act of obedience which symbolizes one's new life with Christ as Savior and Lord.
The Church is the Body of Christ on earth and exists to glorify God among the nations and to prepare Christians for spiritual growth and service to others.
For You and Your Family
Our church family is here for you and your family. Here are several of the opportunities that we offer for spiritual growth and service to our community.
Sunday Morning Worship
Each Sunday our church family gathers to worship God in response to the instruction given from His Word, the Bible. As our name indicates, we place a strong emphasis on knowing and applying the Bible. While our primary language is English, we have a growing number of French speakers as well as other languages represented in our church family. English to French translation is available on Sunday morning.
AWANA takes place on Sunday evenings 17h30 - 19h00 (September through May). AWANA is a Bible-centered ministry for children and youth. It offers a fun, proven approach for the biblical education of children and youth as well as outreach to the community. Scripture-based programs and exciting games promote Bible literacy and help kids develop lifelong faith in Christ. Learn more about AWANA
Our small groups are called "Life Groups". the intimate setting of our homes provides for interactive study of God's Word as well as life-on-life application of biblical principles. Our Life Groups also provide a context of pastoral care and discipleship for their members. Learn more about Life Groups
Growth and Service
Beyond our small groups we offer several opportunities for spiritual growth and service. These include weekend seminars, involvement in ministry teams, prayer gatherings, retreats, outreach through Vacation Bible School, and mission trips. We also sponsor a weekly English Language Café for those who desire to learn English.
IBC provides a unique opportunity for those who desire to develop in servant leadership within the church and community. We believe in equipping believers, nurturing them to spiritual maturity, and empowering them for effective service according to their individual gifting (Ephesians 4:11-16). Through teaching, mentoring and life-on-life coaching, we are committed to equipping servant leaders for God's work around the world.
