A member of IAoC is a person or a group of persons belonging to a local church and want to belong to a World Wide Christian Association.

pastors or lay leaders, and, in nations where this is permissible, often seek non-profit corporate status. You are a person, or a Local church often relates to
denominations, connecting them with a specific tradition within the religion, sharing a broad sense of history, culture and doctrinal heritage with other church bodies
of the same tradition.

So a member is somebody who, whether by a signature or a word of commitment or promise, says, "I'm committed to people who preach the word of God, and people
who commit to the one commandments of love each other. If you say, "OK", I want to be a part of a community, give yourself to ministering there and receiving ministry
there, and advancing the cause, and I'm a part of that.".

In joining IAoC, you make visible your commitment to God and his people. Membership is one way to raise faith. You state before God and others that you are part of this
Christian body of believers.

Committing by saying, "I am committed to this group of people, and they are committed to me. I am here to give, more than get."
We are independent, free spirits and critical thinkers. We get an idea and run with it in the same direction as a part of something bigger than myself. I am not just an
individual. I am part of a body, the Body of Christ".

Our Creed: The Universal Creeds or the Ecumenical Creeds
The Interdenominational Assembly of Churches is an association of Christian churches of different denominations, by definition of our organization, we must use the
Ecumenical creeds, who is an umbrella term used in the Western Church to refer to the Nicene Creed, the Apostles’ Creed and, less commonly, the Athanasian Creed. The
ecumenical creeds are also known as the universal creeds. These creeds are accepted by almost all mainstream Christian denominations in the West, including Reformed
churches, the Roman Catholic Church, Anglican churches and Lutheran churches. Many Methodist churches accept the Nicene Creed and Apostles’ Creed.

The Eastern Orthodox Church accepts the Nicene Creed but does not use the Apostles’ Creed or the Athanasian Creed.

A creed by definition is a summary or statement of what one believes. It originates from the Latin credo meaning “I believe”. The purpose of a creed is to act as a yardstick
of correct belief. A creed is an epitome, not a full definition, of what is required for orthodoxy. It was hoped that by memorizing this summary of the faith, lay people without
extensive theological training would still be able to recognize deviations from orthodox doctrines based on the Bible as interpreted in the Christian tradition. The term
ecumenical can refer to efforts by Christians of different church traditions to develop closer relationships and better understandings. The term is also often used to refer
to efforts towards the visible and organic unity of different Christian churches in some form.
