welcome to

International Baptist Church Costa Rica


The reason why we exist is so that we can knowshow, and share Jesus Christ to the world. Our vision is to reach all the English speakers in the greater metro area who don't know the good news about Jesus and build an international, God-centered community where people can become mature followers of Him.



We want IBC to be like home for the estimated 70,000 - 100,000 English speakers in the Central Valley of Costa Rica.

Worship Services in English

Our worship services, Sunday school classes, and home groups are in English, but we also provide Spanish translation for our Sunday morning services. 

International Family

As our name implies, we are an international community with 20-30 countries represented on any given Sunday.
