Our History

The vision of the church was given to, Pastor T.C. Thomas, in the mid 1990’s as his eldest daughter was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The prolonged illness and three unsuccessful major surgeries made it clear that only a miracle could save her life. Finally the miracle did come and Lisa’s life was spared. It was through this experience that God began to speak to him about the suffering men and women that need God so desperately in our community. To confirm this calling, God spoke to him through several godly men and confirmed that he should start a church in the city of Houston.


On August 17, 1997, with four families, IBC was started at the A.D. Bruce Religion Center on the main campus of the University of Houston. We remained on campus for about two years seeing very little growth at that location. The Lord spoke to us again to relocate the church to the South West side of Houston. We then moved the church to a shopping strip on Dulles Avenue in Stafford. The church began to grow at this location and the Lord spoke again to build a new church at the present location on Stafford Road.


We now enjoy a beautiful building on a 4.3 acre lot very near to both Hwy. 59 and Beltway 8.


Our membership is comprised of many nationalities and ethnic groups. Our ministries have not only reached the local community but also other nations such as, Mexico, Nigeria, India, and Jamaica. We have helped build a church in Mexico, dug a well in Nigeria, presently support two children’s homes in Udaipur, India. Our vision and commitment is to reach the nations of the world.
