Immanuel Bible Church

Located in Springfield, Virginia, approximately 10 miles south of Washington, D.C., Immanuel Bible Church (IBC) has a rich history of ministry in and around the nation’s capital. The IBC church campus serves as the homebase for our D.C. distance location. A critical component to TMS education is the spiritual formation that occurs through fellowship and church-service. All TMS students are required to be active in their own local churches, and to underscore this, all TMS classes are held on the campus of a church that models a biblical philosophy of ministry for the students.
