As an international Christian organization, our strategy is to reach the world for Christ effectively. Equipping local churches with the tools they need to grow allows entire nations to be blanketed with healthy churches. Also, when local churches invest their own effort and resources into each project, the result is a sense of ownership, long-term sustainability, and a greater impact for every dollar you give.

Statement of faith

International Cooperating Ministries (ICM) uses the following to express its Statement of Faith:

We believe in one eternal God, Creator and Lord of the world, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who governs all things according to the purpose of His will.

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's Son, who is Savior and Lord, and who gave Himself as a ransom for sinners through His death on the cross. He rose from the dead and ascended to heaven, where, as truly God and truly man, Jesus is the only mediator between God and humankind.

We believe that all people are lost sinners and cannot see the Kingdom of God except through new birth. Justification is by grace through faith in Christ alone.

We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit, the very Spirit of God, sent to bear witness of the Son. We believe in the work of God's Spirit for the individual's new birth and growth, and for the Church's constant renewal in truth, wisdom, faith, holiness, love, power, and mission.

We believe the Old and New Testament Scriptures to be the only inspired, written Word of God, infallible and without error, our guide for faith and practice.

We believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic Church. The Church's calling is to worship and witness for Jesus Christ, who is the Head, preaching the Gospel among all nations and demonstrating its commitment by compassionate service to the needs of all people.

We believe that Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in power and glory to consummate His salvation and His judgment. God will fully manifest His Kingdom when He establishes a new heaven and a new earth in which He is glorified forever and ever.

ICM subscribes to the Lausanne Covenant.

ICM was founded in 1986 by Dois Rosser, Jr. after hearing the incredible Bible teaching of Virginia pastor Dick Woodward.

Eager to get Woodward's unique survey of the Bible into the hands of indigenous pastors in India, Rosser set up ICM and began working with church leaders in India to translate the material into Hindi.

However, when Mr. Rosser learned that he could help congregations build their own churches for very little cost, his vision expanded. Church buildings gave Christians legitimacy in hostile cultures; devotional Bible studies produced in their heart language and distributed in audio transformed them into local evangelists. For more than 30 years, our international Christian organization has been using this cutting-edge strategy of partnering and leveraging to develop thriving churches in some of the world's least-reached mission fields.
