In September of 2011, we drew together to rename our Church. We ensured that we retained our commitment to the Lord, while making sure we better reflected our congregation and commitmennt to the Great Commission [Matthew 28:16-20].  For the past 10 years you have known us as The Community Bible Fellowship. We will continue to serve the Lord with our new name: The International Bible Christian Fellowship. Our location has not changed and we remain in Lynnwood, Washington. Please come by for a visit, we would love to see you on Sunday morning for our service at 10:30am!
