WE EXIST TO SEE PEOPLE BECOME MORE LIKE JESUS CHRIST AND FEARLESSLY CHANGE THEIR WORLD.
WHAT WE DREAM OF
We dream of a church where Jesus Christ is the center of everything.
He stirs an incomparable passion in us that results in life-changing preaching, powerful worship and overflowing creativity.
In this church, we celebrate and enjoy our relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Full of enthusiasm, we strive to know Him on a deeper and more personal level.
We are a church that is open to everyone. No matter where people come from and regardless of their history:
everyone finds a home here.
We are a family held together by unconditional love, servant leadership and true unity.
The needs of our society compel us to compassionate action.
We are known for our generosity, lending a hand and not turning our backs.
We long to experience the power of God. Knowing that He can do all things,
we expect the Holy Spirit to work among us and experience His miracles.
We are a passionate church. We give our very best for God, speak the language of our time and are part of the solution.
In the church we dream of, many people find faith in Jesus Christ and become more like Him. As we grow constantly, we also develop a more personal community through small groups that have a positive influence on our families, friends and society.
May God fulfill this dream through us. (inspired by Acts 2:42-47)
WHO WE ARE
We walk our talk
We are at the heartbeat of time
We give our very best for God
We create a loving “Welcome Home” atmosphere
We know that the joy of the Lord is our strength
We are blessed to be a blessing
CODE OF HONOR
FOR ICF CAMBODIA STAFF
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
– Hebrews 12:1-2
Salaries and finances
ICF Cambodia is an association. It is financed by voluntary donations. A salary model independent of commissions applies to all employees. Upon request, we provide insight into our finances. With conviction, we fulfill the legal requirements, such as the regular audit of our association’s accounts.
Health and sexuality
We maintain a healthy and addiction-free lifestyle. We actively counteract sexual sin in a self-responsible manner. As an organization, we take preventive measures against sexual abuse and sexual violations, such as a sensitive application procedure, staff training, and a code of conduct for staff and volunteers. At our gatherings we are accepting for all people to come and learn about Jesus but not affirming to sex outside of marriage, those in same gender relationships, and those who are not agreeing to their biological gender. We follow the biblical view of sex, marriage, and dating. (Genesis 1:27 & Romans 1:26-27). All are welcome to come and learn; and those who choose to love Jesus will follow biblical commands (John 14:15).
is the symbol of our commitment to follow Jesus and his teachings (1 Peter 3:21 & Colossians 2:12). We take this decision seriously and prepare each person with teachings and time to make sure it is a genuine experience with a clear mind.
Power and competences
We submit and commit ourselves to the mission statement of ICF. We use entrusted power and competencies responsibly and actively counteract the abuse of power. God calls everyone to proclaim the gospel no matter the race, age, gender, or social status. (Joel 2:28-29 & Acts 2:17). It is vital to empower all leaders and pastors with sound doctrine and the tools they need to make christlike disciples. Strategic and operational responsibility is assigned to the respective areas, subsidiary operations, and locations in the sense of self-organized teams. The competences in the legal branches of the organization are all distributed among the ICF Cambodia Board of Directors
Credibility and integrity
Our published figures and statistics are truthful. We have commissioned and appointed an independent, external clearing office that is not subject to our directives. Every person from the church and its surrounding has the possibility to report to them conflicts with leadership, suspicion of abuse of power, or observations of unhealthy behavior.
May God help us to live faithfully, passionately, and exemplarily.
