Vision of I.K.C.C
The vision of IKCC is to bring Bishops, Pastors, ministers, and congregations to a fellowship in a network of churches that will be able to cross-pollinate as bees do to produce honey by taking nectar from every plant and moving from plant to plant to make that plant healthy. We envision that this process placed into the network of churches; each church being supportive of one another with its strengths and spirit of excellence to make up the weakness that our co-laborers in the network may have come short of or need to be empowered with to use for the glorifying of God’s Kingdom for the support and edifying of the ministers and to build up not man’s kingdom, but God’s Kingdom (Eph. 4:11-13-v.11-And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; v.12-For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: v.13-Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:). It is truly God’s Kingdom that’s in the process of this network that we envision to be focused on.
We invite all denominations in the IKCC fellowship for the purpose of where there is unity there is strength. We do not ask anyone to denounce their style of worship. We believe that if an individual has a style of worship but its substance is that of Biblical principles we can still celebrate the diversity. Instead of looking at the diversity as a dividing point we offer a fellowship of association where we encourage diversity of denomination, races, and culture. Truly we believe that the Kingdom of God is a diverse kingdom of all nations, languages, and cultures. We are not a non-denominational as some may ask, but we are an all denominational fellowship. We believe that there is one Lord, one faith and one baptism. It’s our motto and our belief. In Mark 9:38 John mentioned to Jesus that they saw one casting out devils in His name and he followed not with them; and that he and other disciples forbad him, because he followed not with them or in other words abided in their association because they felt that they had a closer relationship with Jesus because they were actually sent out by Him and connected to the main body of believers. Jesus said to them in verse 38-41 and said, “Forbid them not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in My name, that can lightly speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is on our part. For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in My name because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
When we build our own individual ministries and not look beyond the walls we are building a portion of God’s Kingdom. When we look beyond the walls of our churches to help others while maintaining what we have in our local fellowship we become every brick joined together as a universal body and TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!! (Eph. 4:16-From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.)
We envision a Jonathan and David relationship where every church is anonymous of itself; having its own individual style and diversity in worship, which we will embrace and celebrate. We envision that by this will all the kingdoms and dominions of the world know that we are Christ disciples when we cross denominational lines, racial lines, ethnic lines, economic lines and etc. (John 13:35-By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another). We do not ask anyone to denounce their affiliation with any denomination or race. Where there is unity there is strength. This is a unified effort designed to promote the Kingdom of God in the earth (John 17:21-I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me).
