Our Story


Since its beginning in 1989, Island Baptist Church has been a growing family of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. A full range of backgrounds, ages, and talents are represented here. Whatever your needs and interests are, it’s our prayer that you will feel right at home in this church family, a family that could be characterized by its commitment to: 

The Bible
People in Jesus’ day were amazed at His teaching. It had power that greatly changed the lives of those who accepted it. We believe that the Bible is God’s relevant Word that still changes lives today. Learning its truths is a thrilling adventure and a vital part of what we do as a church.

Although prayer is often seen as a last – ditch effort, we try to keep it a top priority. We have a loving Heavenly Father who rewards those who diligently seek Him.

Everybody needs a little help to get theirs lives together. We value the support we can give to each other in times of crisis and on a regular basis in growing friendships. Different types of small groups and gatherings help us care for one another.People like yourself have made Island Baptist the wonderful church that it is. Our newcomers are very special people. It is my prayer that you will experience God’s richest blessings here. It’s a great home to come home to! 

Warmly in Christ,
Pastor Rick Mitchell
