International Council of Community Churches
As people devoted to following Christ we are committed to community, to treasuring diversity, to living our faith in service and love.
To affirm individual freedom of conscience
To protect and promote congregational self-determination
To proclaim that the love of God, which unites, can overcome any division
To be an integral partner in the worldwide ecumenical movement
Our Conference in History:
In 1950, two fellowships in the Community Church Movement joined in a historic merger. At the time, their joining represented the largest interracial merger of religious bodies in America. The new creation was the International Council of Community Churches. Member churches and centers united to be a fellowship of ecumenically-minded, freedom-loving churches cooperating in fulfilling the mission of the Church in the world. For over 50 years, the Council has witnessed and worked for Christian unity and reconciliation in human society, and this work it carries into the 21st Century.
