International Council of Community Churches
The Council is at its heart relationships among individuals, churches and centers in the service of our common purpose and mission. Through the Council local churches and ministry centers find it possible to find and develop connection with the wider church through the ecumenical movement. In mutual encouragement and resourcing through the Council, local ministries are strengthened.
The Council is an international, intercultural, interracial fellowship of churches and ministry centers which seeks to realize Christian unity in local, national, and world relations. The Council seeks fellowship, mutual support, and common ministries that reflect the unity of all who see themselves within the Christian tradition. The Council seeks:
To be faithful to the prayer of Jesus Christ that "they may all be one;"
To witness to the inclusive love of God that overcomes all divisions;
To love and serve God, God's people, and God's creation;
To seek and share the truth;
To build toward a new world of peace;
To affirm individual freedom of conscience;
To affirm communities of justice, mercy, and love; and.
To be an integral partner in the worldwide ecumenical movement.
