The International Central Gospel Church – ICGC – is an Evangelical, Charismatic Christian Church. It was officially inaugurated as a church on the 26th of February 1984, in Accra, Ghana.
The first meeting was held in a small classroom with an initial membership of just about twenty people. From February 1984 to April 1986, the membership grew to about one hundred and eighty (180) adults in regular attendance.
The early meetings of the church were held in several facilities which included classrooms, a private residence, a public hall, a science laboratory, a mechanical workshop and a cinema theatre.
In May 1986, the church settled in a rented Norge scout hall – the Baden Powell Memorial Hall – which became its home for the next ten years. During this ten-year period, the membership rose to over 4,000.
This period also saw aggressive missionary church planting activities with local assemblies established in almost all the major towns and cities of Ghana. Several other churches were also planted in cities in Europe and the United States.

Statement of Faith
We believe… that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe… in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, and in His bodily resurrection.
We believe… the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God.We believe… in salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe… in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as a subsequent gift to salvation.
We believe… in the provision of bodily healing in the atoning work of Jesus our Saviour.
We believe… in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the resurrection of the saved and the lost; the saved unto eternal life, living eternally in the presence of God, and the unsaved unto eternal damnation.
Vision of ICGC (Acts 2:42)
To establish the house of God through the development of Model New Testament Christians and churches.
That is, we have the commitment to train and equip God’s people who come to our church to develop and grow into maturity in Christ so they will manifest the character of Christ.
