In obedience to the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ, ICS commits to connect individuals, families and communities to God and disciple them to follow Jesus.
ICS will plant churches in different areas in the effort to establish caring communities in every community.
The leadership of the church believes that God has strategically positioned the church in the center, literally, of Metro Manila to aggressively lead individuals, families and communities to Jesus. In the next three years, we are committed to establish congregations in the following areas:
Committed to Church Planting
South of Manila: ICS Sucat, Paranaque and ICS Bicutan, Taguig
ICS Sucat. Started in the November 2013, this church planting endeavor aims to reach out to mixed residential and business community where a number of colleges/universities are also located. Certain portions of the community are densely populated as this is a prominent location in south Manila.
ICS Bicutan. The community of believers meeting in this place asks to be under the covering of ICS leadership. Bicutan, Taguig is also densely populated and is also a strategic location in the south of Manila.
East of Manila: ICS Floodway-Rainforest
ICS Floodway-Rainforest. The work in this area was started latter part of 2013. On December of 2013, the first worship service was conducted with the leadership of the baranggay (most basic unit of government in the Philippines) allowing the baranggay hall to be used every week for this purpose.
Committed to Outreach
ICS commits to reach specific people groups by establishing care groups that will reach out to the following targets:
Connect to ICS family members. Special Bridge Events are lined-up all throughout the year to connect to the families of ICS members.
Connect to nearby communities like Pineda, Pasig and Highway Hills. Care Groups will be mobilized to reach out to people in these communities.
Byaheng Buhay Outreach. Byaheng Buhay, which literally means “Life Journey”, is the outreach arm targeted at tricycle drivers and their families. Spearheaded by the Married Couples Ministry-Makati Care Group, this program has already reached out to about 80 families. Aside from discipling people in care groups, the Byaheng Buhay Outreach is also facilitating community development initiatives such as livelihood programs and non-formal education to help improve people’s social condition.
Ministry to the Deaf. ICS runs a ministry for the deaf community.
180° Activity Center: Life Turns Around Here. This activity center was constructed to be an outreach center that will house bridge events to passers-by and people frequenting the Greenfields District where the church is located.
Connect to children in the communities
Metro Sidewalk Sunday School. The outreach in Pineda, Pasig is also enhanced by this ministry which also reaches out to street children.
Summer community saturation. On April 2014, the church will help in the church planting efforts by conducting Daily Vacation Bible School in these areas.
