In 1989 Emmanuel Church under the leadership of Pastor Bhooshanraj Thomas had a foresight to plant a church in the Banaswadi area of Bangalore. Mr. Jayakanth with the help of the youth of the church initiated the outreach by track distribution and evangelistic meetings. This lead to the house group, which later blossomed into a larger fellowship. The need for full time Pastor and a larger place of worship arose. The fellowship meetings was moved to Little Angels School. In the year 1990 Pastor Christopher Gnankan was ordained and appointed as the Pastor of officially constituted Banaswadi Bible Church (BBC). In September 1991, the land was purchased for the building of the church. The church building was dedicated on 9th September 1993. Now BBC is one of the most vibrant English congregation in the city of Bangalore. The unique feature of the church is that it still continues to be a Bible Based Church.

From Our Pastor
Welcome to Banaswadi Bible Church.
As you enter Banaswadi Bible Church sanctuary, you will read the words on the wall “to the praise of God’s glorious grace…” (Ephesians 1:6) This verse expresses the very basis on which Banaswadi Bible Church stands.
The Bible refers to the gathering of Christians with words like “church”, “assembly” or “body”. The Church is also referred as “special people”. They are people that Jesus has redeemed and that belong to Him. “He it is who gave himself for us to that he might redeem us from all iniquity and to purify for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds ” (Titus 2:14).
Banaswadi Bible Church envisions doing what is good:
PASSION to FOLLOW JESUS
PRAYER to CHANGE ONESELF
PURSUIT to SEARCH THE TRUTH
PARTICIPATE to BUILT COMMUNITIES
Have a wonderful journey with Banaswadi Bible Church.
Rev. R. Josiah Ranji Babu
