Christ Is The Answer International Church
CIACHURCH: A UNIQUE PLACE WITH UNIQUE VALUES
Every successful journey starts with a plan and an intended destination.
That’s why “Where is God taking us?” is a question we need to be able to answer.
CIACHURCH and HOUSTON are at a crossroad unlike any other time in history.
What’s our next step?
We are on a journey to discover and apply the vision God has given us.
It’s the intersection where our unique gifts and resources meet the unique
challenges and opportunities of Houston and the Southwest Houston
When are we making a difference?
I am personally accountable to other Christians
I am involved in equipping environments
I am multiplying disciple makers
I give biblically
It starts with God thru Christ and then in me.
Once we step into this revival personally, we’re compelled to share the effects of God’s kingdom in our communities, our city, and the nations.
OUR MISSION IS TO LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, SHARE JESUS AND MAKE DISCIPLES
The first part of the CIACHURCH Vision Frame is the mission. The mission is the guiding compass of the church. It gives us direction and points everyone in that direction.
Our mission statement may sound simple, but to us, it guides everything we do and flows from the mission of Jesus himself as he described in the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:37-39 and the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20.

The Gospel of Jesus—the Good News that He brought—is that God has made the way for us to move from darkness to light. It is a revival that can start today.
How are we doing it ?
Our Values make up the second part of our Vision Frame as they are the motivational flame of the church.
They are the shared convictions that guide actions.

Treasuring God’s perfect Word as our standard for life and faith.
Welcoming every person with the love of Jesus.
Reflecting the character of God in service to others.

Investing in the redemption of the people of our community.
Why are we doing it ?

The fourth area of our Vision Frame is Strategy. It is like a flashlight that helps everyone clearly see next steps to getting involved.
Our strategy consists of six proven pathways to accomplishing our mission at CIACHURCH.
Our desire is that each person worships, connects, serves in, is equipped, serves out and is a part of spiritual revival.
WE BELIEVE GOD IS CALLING US TO BE A CHRISTLIKE FOR SPIRITUAL AWAKENING IN HOUSTON AND BEYOND..
