What truly matters is that the name, James Kibelbek, is written down in "The Lamb's Book of Life", and now he is living with our Lord's.

Jim was a gifted Expositor. He was always well prepared when standing in the pulpit, given to much prayer, and preaching with deep conviction. It was my privilege to sit under his ministry for over 12 years - serving under his pastorate, and enjoying our times of fellowship together. From time to time we would play violin duets, and sing in a men's quartet during church services. Even in my own dark hours, he was there to pray with me and encourage my heart.

The best testimony Jim left us was distinct impressions of Jesus Christ. Even to this day, his life of prayer and preaching still has "eternal value" stamped on it.

May all of heaven hear those ringing words Jesus spoke to Jim upon his arrival home: "Well done! my good and faithful servant."

My life journey was blessed being under the scriptural teaching of Pastor James Kibelbek. Pastor & Mim were a wonderful pastoral team. Mim, be blessed knowing you have both been God's vehicle for His blessings.

Mim, I was so blessed to have Pastor Kibelbek as my pastor all those years at First Baptist. He was certainly a Godly man. Lyndon passed away 5/23/16 but if he were here he would agree with me. He loved being in Pastor's Bible study group on Wednesday evenings while I was in choir. My sincerest sympathy to you in your loss.

I remember "Jim" as a young man at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Parma, Ohio, joking around with my brothers and playing beautiful violin solos. His mom was my Sunday School teacher and I memorized many verses due to her influence. My prayers to the whole family.
