History of BBFC
Brazil Bible Fellowship Church grew from a plant by the Indiana Bible Church Mission. It graduated from the mission in the late 1980s, but fell upon hard times resulting in it being re-planted by the mission in 1997 and was brought under the auspices of Midwest Church Extension when IBCM became part of the merger forming that agency. The church has grown from around 12 in attendance in 1997 to an attendance of 30-40 today.
The original congregation, in the 1980s, built a brick-faced building with an auditorium seating more than 80 people. Additional space includes five classrooms and the Pastor’s office. The building and property are debt free.
