Organizational Statement of Faith: 

ICY holds to the Evangelical alliance Statement of faith which states:

WE BELIEVE that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit

WE BELIEVE in the deity and perfect humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His atoning death through His outpoured blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and His personal return to power and glory

WE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life

WE BELIEVE the Bible to be inspired in its entirety by God?s Holy Spirit through human authors revealing God?s truth to humanity. It is without error in all that it affirms. Christians must therefore submit to its supreme authority

WE BELIEVE in the personal and visible return in glory of the Lord Jesus Christ to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgment in final completion

WE BELIEVE in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
