Rev. Dr. T. C. Thomas & Aleyamma Thomas

Senior Pastor

Rev. Dr. T. C. Thomas & his wife Aleyamma (“Aley”) are the founders and Senior Pastors of International Bible Church.

Pastor Thomas was born in Kerala, India. At the age of seventeen he felt a calling into the ministry and left home for theological studies at the South India Biblical Seminary in Bangarapet, India. After finishing a four year program, he came to the United States for further studies in 1969. He continued his studies at Mid America Christian University and earned his B.A. degree; his Masters degree from Luther Rice University and his Ph.D. from Central Christian University.

In addition to serving in the ministry, he has over thirty years of engineering experience in the petrochemical and nuclear power plant design. Remaining faithful to God’s calling for over thirty-six years, it was not until a personal journey that the true purpose of God’s plan was revealed for his ministry.

In 1992, it was the surprise diagnosis of ovarian cancer for their eldest daughter Lisa that brought many years of challenges for the family. Despite numerous surgeries, failing health and grim doctor’s reports, the family weathered a season of suffering and pain that revealed the days of miracles are not over, but can be experienced even today.

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). Continuing to stand on His word, Lisa is a living witness of the miracle of God. Along with their three wonderful children: Dr. Lisa Thomas-Mathew, Lina Ann Thomas, and Bobby Thomas, they share the vision and desire to minister compassion and love to the suffering and the afflicted.

Each week, Pastor Thomas shares a message of encouragement, hope and deliverance. He believes and teaches that the days of miracles are not over but you can experience it in your own life even today because he has seen the hand of God moving so strongly in his own life. The Word of God is sufficient and powerful enough to transform lives, communities and nations. We are excited about God and what He is doing today in our church.

“I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:1-2) MKJV.
