Our Pastor has tragically passed away as of July 24, 2022.   We are all heartbroken and sad that we don't have him here for his guidance and sharing of the gospel. We plan to continue the mission that he started if God allows it. Please pray for his widow Mrs. Roselin Fort; children: Job, Paul, Anna, Elisabeth, Grace, Sarah, Esther, Ruth, Lydia and Elijah through this extremely difficult time as everyone's hearts are so heavy now. We pray they all find closure in their own time.  If you were a Mission, Pastor or seeking a church and were in touch with Pastor Fort we welcome everyone to continue their relationship with MIBC. We don't plan to let ourPastor Fort's ministry die out.  Please reach out to our church members by phone 312-993-9555 by phone or text if we can be of any help or answer any questions you may have about what we are doing to keep our doors open at MIBC.  We are still at 3239 W Bryn Mawr Ave in Chicago, IL 60659. We plan to continue attending as many Chicago area parades as possible, if you are interested in passing out bible tracts with us feel welcomed to join us anytime (We will post our upcoming parade schedules on this website).
