Jesus said it is more blessed to give than to receive. ICA believes in fulfilling the call of God by serving others and helping in areas of need in our nation, whether it’s partnering with other churches to help their ministry, building projects, responding to disasters with aid and assistance, or offering medical help in poor and rural communities. Each year we do service projects to help in various parts of Indonesia. If you would like to join a service trip, click our link below to learn more.
In Isaiah 58, God spoke through the prophet Isaiah, commanding His people to share their food with the hungry, shelter the homeless, help those in trouble. But this is so much more than simply providing charity—this is a command teaching us about right worship, about healing, and about restoration. So, like Jesus, we meet the poor where they are, build relationships and learn with them, walk with them, and empower them to be the people God wants them to be.
Join us as we work with teens from poor communities—to educate them, mentor them, raise them up to be young leaders and change-makers in their own communities, so they in turn can impact their families and friends.
This is how the body of believers is restored. This is how the world is restored. To ourselves, To one another. And to God.

We want you to be in a Group because we want you to THRIVE as a Christian. And deep relationships with God’s people provide the vital in-flow and out-flow necessary to do just that.
