Greetings, dear friend, in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for visiting the Independence Blvd. SDA Church (IBC) webpage. As you navigate our site you will see that we at IBC are a united fellowship of Christ’s disciples who, by the power of the Holy Spirit:

  • proclaim the Gospel in word and deed;
  • equip and empower members to live, teach and preach God’s end-time message individually and corporately; and
  • magnify God through transformational study of His word, loving servant-leadership, dynamic worship, and holistic, compassionate, relevant ministry.

IBC is located at 3808 W Polk St. where we have maintained a visible and effective presence on the west side of Chicago for more than 50 years. We believe that our Fathers house is a house of prayer for all people, so we would like to invite you to come and Magnify the Lord with us during our 9:15 a.m. Bible Study and 11:00 a.m. Worship service on Saturday mornings and our midweek Recharge service on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m.

May God fill you with the light of His love and truth!


The Independence Blvd SDA church is called to proclaim the Gospel of Christ in the context of the three angels’ messages of Rev 14:6-12, to call others to the true worship of God, and to inspire in all persons a love for Christ, a passion for righteousness, and a consciousness of duty to minister to the needs of humanity. We pledge our lives to Christ and covenant with each other to demonstrate His Spirit through worship, witnessing, bible study and ministry to the people of this church and to the surrounding community.


The vision of the Independence Blvd Seventh-day Adventist Church is to build a membership of believers who are equipped with the knowledge of God, empowered by the Holy Spirit of God, and commissioned through the command of God to evangelize.
