IBC Cropped

Island Bible Chapel (IBC) began as Bible study in the homes of local believers on St. Joseph Island from 1973-75. In 1976, the group decided to officially form a church, and in September, less than 20 people came for the first church service, held at St. Joseph Island Central School.   From these humble beginnings, the Lord has worked in amazing ways. The church grew quickly, both numerically and spiritually, and in 1977 property was purchased and construction of the Island Bible Chapel began shortly thereafter.   The inaugural service in the new building was held on June 1, 1980.   For more than 40 years, IBC has been shining the light of Jesus on St. Joseph Island and in the Central Algoma region.

Island Bible Chapel is an independent, evangelical, Christian (Brethren) church.
