Testimonies


Jeanne & Ivan “We have been coming to IFGF Pinole since Sept 2019. We keep coming because of the People! They go out of their way to support each other. When we first came here, we felt that right away. It’s almost like having an extended family. The sermons are also great. If you want to get a sense of the community, try going to the hangouts first. Picnic, biking, care group, or maybe even try some of the cooking.”

“We have been coming to IFGF Pinole for the past 10 months. The reason why we keep coming to IFGF is because our college aged children are welcomed and well accepted within the group and we love to them growing in Christ. IFGF has been well known with their hospitality, you will feel at home right on your first visit.”

Phoebe & Niko


“I’ve been coming to IFGF Pinole since 2016 when I was still a freshman. For me the sense of community within the church was what kept me going there every Sunday. The bi-weekly Care Group gatherings that took place in my campus greatly fostered the bonds I shared with my fellow church friends. The activists from each campus organize carpools to and from church every Sunday, I would strongly recommend those considering to come to IFGF Pinole to join! After all, car trips are a good way to make new friends too!”

Brian


Winarto “I have been coming to IFGF Pinole since 10 months ago and it has been a great home church ever since I moved back to the US. It’s a relatively small church, which makes it easy to integrate into the community. I like how they give the space and environment to grow my personal relationship with God, while also challenging me through messages that objectively speak the Truth in the Word of God. I would encourage others to come, be inspired and experience spiritual growth together at IFGF Pinole.”


Aimee How long have you been coming to IFGF Pinole (Both campuses)? I have been going to both campuses for 7 years. My dad first brought me to Pinole when I was 6 days old. What do you see as the best features that makes you keep coming? I like going to church because I can see my friends, I can play games, attend Sunday school, and I can sometimes play on the play structure (all before Covid-19). How would you encourage to those who may be considering to come to IFGF Pinole? My church has a sunday school, and it’s fun. My friends are nice and they like to play.


“ And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

� Romans 8 : 28
