Yep. We’re restored.


“We are broken people discovering healing together. We embrace restoration.” Most of the people you meet when you visit BIWC will be nice and friendly. But you need to know before you come, that we’re a bunch of broken messes.


We are a family. What holds us together is not ethnicity, education, income, or politics. We are a family because of Jesus and owe Jesus a common allegiance. Christ, his broken body and shed blood, are at the center of all we do together.  We each come — bringing our unique stories — to journey life together as a community. It is not about uniformity, but unity, so that together we may live for something bigger than ourselves.So no matter where you are in life we invite you to come as you are and encourage you to live for something greater.



We think each and every Sunday morning when we gather together, the comfortable will be made uncomfortable by the gospel, and the uncomfortable will be made comfortable by that same gospel. We both celebrate and embrace the mainifestation of the Holy Spirit as we enter into God's grace as we orient our lives around Jesus.


There are people attending BIWC, who have major hurts, habits, and hang-ups. We’re a community of people who don’t have it all together but are discovering what it means to find life in Jesus, to follow him fully, to break free from our past, and to walk in victory together. That’s who we are.


Song


When we gather on Sunday mornings, we join together in song. We find unity as we sing prayers of adoration, thanksgiving, and repentance. You’ll hear new songs, old songs, hymns, and choruses that all point to the glory of our living God. Most importantly you will hear (and be a part of!) God-honoring, God-glorifying, God-exalting, gospel-centered worship.


Word


The center of our service is hearing from the scriptures and apply it to our lives. Every time we gather we hear relevant, timely, and applicable messages to everyday life. However, it’s also thoroughly gospel-centered. Our Teaching Team will often teach the Bible verse-by-verse, while adding in additional scripture, historical context, and what others have said about the passage. Most importantly, the message always tells the hope we have in Jesus for this life and the life beyond.


Table


Towards the end of one service a month we come to the table of Communion. We participate in the Christ given act of eating the bread of Christ’s body, drinking the cup of Christ’s blood, and thus remembering His death until He comes again. When we gather in this rememerance of Christ  it is open to take or not to take. It’s available for the committed and accessible for the curious.

Believers International Worship Center began as a safe place for people to discover God and connect with others. Today, we see our church flourishing like never before. We’re grateful for all God has done and invite you to become a part of God’s unfolding story at BIWC.

 

When you visit, you’ll meet people, just like you, no weird stuff here – just common folks trying to live uncommon lives in a way that is real, smart, brave, and fun. We place a high emphasis on helping you and your family connect, and offer many choices to help you feel comfortable.

 

Our services consist of worship through music, followed by a time of teaching, and are about 90 minutes long. BIWC Pastors teach out of the Bible and bring messages of truth, hope, and love.

Parking

We have parking available all around the church with handicap parking located near the entrance of our church building.

Greeters

We know visiting a new church can be intimidating, that’s why we have a greeting team who would love to meet you and show you around! We always recognize the first-time visitors because so many of the people who come are still fairly new, so feel free to say, “This is my first time” and we’ll guide you in!

Dress

We care about YOU, not what you’re wearing! We want you to feel welcome just as you are! Our dress code is simple: wear something.  We’re more concerned with people’s hearts than what they are wearing.

Food and Drink

Food and drink is not allowed in the auditorium

Practical Teaching

Our teaching is centered on the triune Godhead.  The message of God’s grace, salvation and restoration are inspired from the Bible. We believe in teaching practically out of the Bible and allowing the Holy Spirit to speak to you.  We don’t just want to just give you information, but teach for transformation that will equip you and your family to live a life empowered for Jesus!

Worship

Our services have pre-recorded music that is lively, including drums and guitars. Don’t be surprised when some people raise their hands as a sign of praise while singing. We create an atmosphere of freedom in our services.
