Who We Are: Parenting at IBC Guiding Principles

Rooted in Truth — Because God’s Word is living and true, we value parenting that is rooted in Biblical truth.

Centered on Grace — Because God’s heart is gracious, we value parenting that centers on grace rather than performance.

Focused on Relationship — Because true life change happens in the context of relationship, we value parenting that gives priority to relationships above rules and conformity.

Grounded in Love — Because strategies alone focus only on situations and behaviors, we value parenting grounded in lasting principles that reflect the love of God.

Lived with Authenticity — Because hypocrisy is the opposite of truthfulness, we value parenting that models transparency, humility and authenticity.

Called to Serve — Because we are called to share the love of Christ, we value parenting that equips children and parents to serve others.
