The history of Ambikapur IPC Church begins with the out reach ministry of Pr. Thomas Philip in 1983. This ministry was continued by Pr. P. P John and Pr. K.T Chacko who were serving as pastors in IPC Bethel Church, Bishrampur.
Initially meetings were held in the houses of believers. During the time of Pr. K.T Chacko a plot was brought but the church building was constructed in the time of Pr. P. I Abraham who served as the first full time minister in the church (1993-1999). The ministry among the local people was started by Pr. Johnson Mathew (1999-2002). Pr. Binu Joseph continued the ministry and started a new Sunday school at Gangapur village (2002-2004). Pastor Jose Jacob focused the ministry among the locals as well as jail inmates (2004-2006). Pr. Koshy Varghese continued the ministry (2006-2009). Pr. M. J Sunny is presently serving as pastor (2009-).

We have four out stations and eight Sunday schools in different places. God blessed us with three new church buildings. Five plots are being sponsored by the believers to construct churches, bible school respectively.
