ReFresh: Higher ‘n Higher — Our Identity

refreshEvery decision we make at IBCB is an expression of our IDENTITY.  Who are we?  What is our purpose, mission, vision, and values?

The following is one attempt to helps us identify ourselves.  Are these true of us?  Why?  Why not?  Do we have consensus?  Are we in alignment?

Our Kingdom Concept:  IBCB exists to glorify God and make disciple-making followers of Jesus Christ by multiplying relational connections between people and God’s purpose in Jesus, the church, and God’s world.

Tagline:  Get Connected!logo_on_light_image_only

Slogan:  Connecting people to Jesus, one another, and God’s world!

Our Logo:

  • Cross — Jesus Christ is central to our life together.
  • Community — Our diversity in unity shows itself in our love for one another.
  • Commission — Sharing Jesus’ love with God’s world is our service of worship.

In response to our ReFresh: Higher ‘n Higher strategic study, IBCB’s leaders are recommending to the church a change in job description and increase in hours for Jürgen Ferrary.  During the next few weeks, you will see survey results and read a number of articles that have led to this recommendation.  In addition, you will have opportunity to participate in a number of “church family conversations” designed to help us find consensus regarding God’s will in the matter for our life together in IBCB.

Important Dates for Your Agenda:

  1. June: Church Family Conversation (After Worship, 14:00 h)
  2. July: Church Family Business Meeting (After Worship, 14:00 h)
