IFCM Ministry Affiliation

One of the purposes of IFCM to provide a basis for fellowship between churches and minstries, as well as spiritual support and counsel as requested or needed, according to the scriptures: Hebrews 10:24-25; Acts 20:28; Deuteronomy 17:8-11. We endeavor to walk in humility, in a Christ-like manner with all of our affiliate ministries and ministers, always recognizing that God is the Ultimate "Father," and Jesus Christ is the, "Head of the Church."

You might be asking, why should a local church affiliate with International Fellowship of Christian Ministries, Inc.?

There are many reasons why an independent church or ministry should not be totally alone in the Body of Christ. Years of Church history reveal that very few independent churches survive into the second or third generation. They usually last as long as the founder still in a position of leadership.

The connection between IFCM and your Ministry helps assure accountability for a pastor from among his peers and the spiritual oversight of a plural presbytery of counselors. Pastors, elders, deacons and other church leaders have fellowship with other leaders of other churches of like faith through sharing guest speakers, attending seminars, conferences and special events as well as the annual conferences at IFCM in Mt. Dora, FL.

Being part of IFCM lets a local church have a window to the world by participating in the evangelism efforts of IFCM ministries in foreign countries. Members of affiliated churches can travel on short term mission trips and participate in ministry in a developing country. Every church needs to be touching the lives of people in some other part of the world. We believe God is blessing those who do.
