Brief Description of the Church

My time as pastor began Feb. 21, 2015 after serving with the IMB in Romania. ISBC has a long vibrant history in this community. The church has a strong passion for missions and outreach. The members have a deep desire to study God’s Word, therefore I am laying out a systematic plan to teach them proper hermemeutics, systematic theology and dispensationalism.
