BIC Philadelphia was found to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19 - 20)"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." 

Based on the Great Commandment (Mark 12:30-31) "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.There is no commandment greater than these." We are building strong families through building strong individuals. We are building strong individuals by empowering life with the Word of God and anointing of the Holy Spirit.
