ICM Statement of Purpose

 

The following statements, which are based on the Lord’s commandments for all churches, outline the purposes and goals of International Chapel:

 

  1. To share the Gospel lovingly, faithfully and effectively in order to win as many of the lost (Japanese and internationals) to Christ as possible (Matt 28:19, Mark 16:15),
  2. To help each person who responds to the Gospel to grow in the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, and to encourage and build up one another in the faith (2 Cor 13:14, Heb 10:24-25, 1 Peter 4:10-11) so that God will be glorified in and through our church.
  3. To train each person who responds to the Gospel to be a disciple who obeys all that Christ commanded (Matt 28:20, 1 Thess 2:9c, 11-12),
  4. To train disciples to use their spiritual gifts to share in the accomplishing of the purposes that the Lord has given the Church (Eph 4:11-12, 1 Peter 4:10-11),
  5. And, to establish churches (Chapels) as the Lord leads us to do so.
