Our History

IBC first met February 2006 at the home of Pastor Mike and Angie Ellis.  After several meetings at the Ellis home, IBC celebrated their first worship service April 2006 at 3160 North Thomas (Northgate Shopping Center) with the sponsorship and full support of Bellevue Baptist Church (BBC).


The name Impact for the church was agreed upon by IBC family to create a spirit of unity between IBC and BBC (Impact Ministries). 


Crystal Chopin was the first member to join (in addition to the charter members). Amaiya Rose Williams was the first baby to be born at IBC.


After experiencing 2 ½ years of explosive physical and spiritual growth, over 1,000 believers have joined IBC and over 500 have been baptized since organizing in 2006. 


In 2008 God opened the door for IBC to relocate to 3759 North Watkins (previous home of Georgian Hills Baptist Church).


The Godly team collaboration of Bellevue and the Mid-South Baptist Association working together to purchase this beautiful church campus for the IBC family to call home.
