Caring Supporting Encouraging Equipping Mobilising
ICAG is an acronym for "International Christian Ambassadors of God."
The Organisation was founded in Europe, but now has its headquarters in Singapore. There are currently Chapters in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, United Kingdom, Germany, Philippines, and India. There are also members in Switzerland, Estonia, Burma, Sri Lanka, and Israel.
ICAG is a Fellowship of God's people, consisting of ministers, churches, ministries, fellowships, and house groups uniting in Christian love and fellowship for the spread of the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ world-wide. It also unites and collaborates with all Christian communities and organisations of like mind. It is a global body that maintains and fosters universal relations with other ecumenical bodies. It believes in the Apostolic Succession, centred in Christ the Lord, with the gift of the Holy Spirit through Whom the apostolic anointing is released to believers and ministers and to the body of Christ as a whole [Acts 2:17-24, 36-39; John 14:12, 17:20-23; Luke 22:29].
ICAG promotes, supports, and strengthens missions and evangelism in compliance with the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ [Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-20], following the footsteps of the early apostles, and submitting to the apostolic anointing of the Holy Spirit's demonstration of His power with miracles, signs and wonders to confirm God's word [Acts 4:33, 5:12-16, 8:4-8]. It takes a keen interest in encouraging and supporting its members to carry out the tasks of spreading the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, feeding God's flock, and looking after their churches and ministries. Their interests and well-being are given first priority because ICAG believes that their success is for the body as a whole.
ICAG believes in unity in the body of Christ [John 17:20-23] and true Christian love in compliance with the Lord's command, "This is My commandment, that ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends" [John 15:12-13]. ICAG protects and promotes the interests of its members locally, nationally, and overseas. It equips and empowers ministers in the work of the Master.
