Statement of Faith
While we recognize that leadership and communication training is beneficial for everyone, there are a few distinctives that set our organization apart. In order to help us act as a community, united in mind, spirit, and purpose (Phil 2:2), we hold to a creed, a statement of the essential beliefs that we hold in common. This creed is not the sum total of everything each of us believes or practices. It does, however, delineate key features that bond us together as we work for united goals.
ICC representatives subscribe to the Nicene Creed, a statement of faith embraced by all stripes of Christ-followers: Protestants, Roman Catholics, and Eastern Orthodox believers. The Creed was written in 325 AD, which is before the Roman Catholic Church was formed and before the ancient writings of Scripture were canonized into the Bible as we know it today. We have selected the most common English translation of the Creed.
ICC is not a church. We are an organization of Christ followers joined by a common mission. We recognize that any words chosen to describe our faith have the potential to be both inclusive and exclusive. Our goal in selecting the Nicene Creed is to include fellow Christ followers.
