What is ICF?

International Christian Fellowship (ICF) provides an international community in which inquirers and seekers can learn more about genuine Christianity, and Christians can grow in their knowledge of Christ.


What are the activities of ICF?


One Group – Two Bible Studies on Sunday Mornings

On Sunday mornings, we offer two different Bible studies to meet different needs and preferences. The current Bible studies are listed below.

ICF-A: “God’s Will for His People”

People generally believe there is a right way to live and behave. But how do we know? And how can we do it? God has given His people instructions on how to live, and He has given them the resources to do it! What are God's instructions? How do they apply to our daily lives? That’s what we are discussing in this informative, challenging, and practical study. We are using the "Ten Commandments" as a general outline. ICF-A usually starts with lecture and big group discussion, followed by small group discussion around 3 to 4 tables, including an “easier English table.” The study is usually led by Jay Lester

ICF-B: “Jesus, the Man” (A Study in the Gospel of John)

Jesus was a man, a human being just like you and me. Even though God was his Father, and his home was in heaven, he became one of us and lived on earth. Jesus taught, mentored his followers and even endured suffering and death. In short, Jesus fully experienced the human condition. Because of his being a man, we can fully identify with Jesus and discover from him how to live our lives in this world. ICF-B is a class for international students, scholars and family members. Sessions are held around a table and follow a format that includes reading the Bible together and answering prepared questions related to the passage. ICF-B is especially suited to internationals who are new to the Bible and who want to improve their English conversation skills. The study is usually led by Bob & Sandra Jackson.

Other Activities

In addition to our Sunday morning activities, we have various social and recreational activities, and we partner with others in trips and retreats.
