The first IBC churches were started to minister to the needs of the US military servicemen and women who were stationed in Europe. Through the years, the churches have evolved to reflect the make-up of the communities to which they minister. Today more than one-third of the churches are still comprised primarily of military personnel, while the others are made up mostly of international members. The word "international" is in the name of more than half the churches. The churches are rich in diversity, yet strive for unity in Christ, rooted in Christian love.
