Council of Churches?

Since 1950, the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA (NCC) has served as a leading voice of witness to the living Christ.  NCC unifies a diverse covenant community of 38 member communions and over 40 million individuals –100,000 congregations from Protestant, Anglican, Orthodox, Evangelical, historic African-American, and Living Peace traditions – in a common commitment to advocate and represent God’s love and promise of unity in our public square.  NCC partners with secular and interfaith partners to advance a shared agenda of peace, progress, and positive change.

ABOUT THE INTERDENOMINATIONAL COOPERATON FUND (ICF)

Being a global church’s means you have to be concerned about the wellbeing of other Christians around the world. The Interdenominational Cooperation Fund (ICF) enables United Methodists to share a presence and a voice in the activities of several national and worldwide ecumenical organizations. It provides the United Methodist share of the basic budgets of these organizations. Together we stand as an ecumenical front to globally make a difference. Even though our customs may differ, promoting basic human rights in every corner of the world is the basic mission of the ICF. Giving towards the ICF help Christians around the world stand together for those who are marginalized and persecuted for speaking about their faith. In 1952, the General Conference agreed to share in the basic budget with other organizations to help provide for the budget of the National Council of Churches and World Council of Churches.
