EXALT

“In everything we do, we desire to exalt Jesus Christ!  We determine to preach the Word of God correctly and live by it!  We desire to be led by the Spirit of God and to live a life pleasing to our Father!  We aim to do as John 3:30 states, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Our goal is not to focus on ourselves, but to focus on the greatness of Christ!”   Philippians 2:5-11

EQUIP

“John 8:31 tells us that if we continue (obey) in the words of Christ then we are disciples “indeed” (no doubt).  Our goal at IBT is to train those in the church in the Word of God and encourage them to live as God’s Word instructs.  Not only will this help the believer grow in their faith, but it also will encourage them to reach the “lost” for Christ. Our aim is to teach the believer to be a defender of the Christian faith and to be passionate about sharing their faith.”

ENGAGE

“According to Matthew 28:18-20 we are to go into all the world with the good news of Jesus Christ!   Currently we have over 30 foreign mission works that we financially support on a monthly basis but we also desire to reach our local community.  We financially support 5 local ministries and have 3 free community events each year with the purpose of sharing the love of Christ to our neighbors.  These events are fun and designed to reach kids and families.  We desire to share God’s Word at all times but we also what to share life with people as well.  Sharing our lives will hopefully lead others to want new life through Jesus Christ! 

 

 
 

Our Pastor

One of my favorite Bible verses is John 10:10. This verse states, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, to kill, and to destroy: I am come that the might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” I love this verse because it specifically tells us what the devil’s plan is and what God’s plan is. The devil’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy and he seems to be doing a great job at that. However, God sent Jesus into the world to give us abundant life and to be made free from the death-grip of satan. My goal, and the goal for IBT, is to tell people about freedom and new life with Jesus Christ! We also equip God’s disciples to reach our community for Him. If you are looking for a church like this please come visit and be a part of what God is doing on the Southside of Indy!

Our greatest need??
 
Have you ever thought about what our greatest need is?  I know that some will state the obvious things like oxygen or beating hearts.  Others might say coffee in the morning!  Still others might say Oreos, but of course that wouldn’t be me.  Although we do need oxygen and beating hearts to …

No Rewards Today…”

 I wasn’t planning on mentioning Panera two weeks in a row, but the cashier said something during my weekly visit that really caught my attention.  As I gave my order and swiped my rewards card, she saw my information on the screen and said, “looks like you don’t have any rewards today Matt” and continued on with the transaction.  Although I …

Lessons learned at Panera…

If I am not studying at home, I am often at a local Panera to study for an upcoming message.  I like coming here for several reasons.  One, I love their almond milk hot chocolate!  Two, during certain times of the day it is a fairly quiet place to be.  Three, I oftentimes get inspiration for message illustrations or these email messages from the people that I observe.  Yes, I am one of those…a people watcher!&nb …
