About Us​

Who we are​

The Tampa Bay International Christian Church is a non-denominational church that is part of the International Christian Churches and a member of the SoldOut Discipling Movement. We are a family of Christian churches whose members are committed to living their lives in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ as found in the Bible. We read and strive to abide by the entire Bible and hold it to be inspired and inerrant. We expect every member to be a disciple of Christ as defined in his teachings. The International Christian Churches were built on the revolutionary but Biblical conviction that every person must first make a decision to become a disciple and then be baptized. The Biblical Greek word for church is “ekklesia,” which means “the called out.” Today we are an international family of churches that is rapidly spreading to all nations around the world (see our Crown of Thorns Project). We have been called out from religious mediocrity, spiritual error, atheism and agnosticism–into a meaningful, vibrant relationship with God.

Our congregations reflect the diversity of the cities and nations where we have planted churches. Worldwide, people of all races, ages and cultures weekly attend our worship services. These services are true celebrations, for the life of a disciple of Christ is the most joyful one we know.

We invite you to come as you are as anyone is welcome. You will love the dynamic fellowship, awe-inspiring worship and singing, and hear a practical and powerful message from God’s word. We also host small-group “Bible Talks” around the Tampa Bay area. Please contact us if you have any further questions.

Jesus taught his disciples to not only make disciples, but also to meet the physical needs of people. We volunteer with MERCY Worldwide to meet the needs of people around us. One of Jesus’ final commands to his disciples was to go and make disciples of all nations (Mt 28:18-20).

As disciples of Christ, our lives are committed to bringing his church to every nation within this generation. In keeping with Biblical examples, we multiply our churches by sending out small groups of disciples to major metropolitan areas, where they then form new churches. Since every new member is a committed disciple, these new churches grow rapidly and are soon strong enough to send out other groups to plant more churches.

What we believe

There is one true God…

who reveals himself to the world as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

Jesus is the Son of God…

and is our one and only Lord and Savior, crucified for our sins and physically resurrected from the dead on the third day (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Corinthians 15 ).

The Bible is the only written message of God…

inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error (2 Timothy 3:16-17; Peter 1:19-21).

Every Christian needs to be discipled…

(called/taught) to obey the Scriptures by other Christians after they are baptized (Matthew 28:20).

A person is saved by the grace of God

and the blood of Jesus Christ. A person must, through faith and obedience, reach out to receive this free gift of salvation (Ephesians 1:1-10; James 2:14-26).

When a person repents and is baptized…

as with the first Christians, their sins are forgiven and the Holy Spirit begins to work in their life (Acts 2:36-41; Romans 8:5-11).

Only baptized disciples

are members of Christ’s church (Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13).

Every disciple must be committed

to the vision of taking God’s Word to build churches by making disciples of all every nation in this generation (Matthew 24:14; Colossians 1:6, 23)

Core Values​


The primary function of the family of God is to be a worshiping community in attitude and lifestyle (Matt. 4:10, Jn. 4:23-24, Rom. 12:1-2). In our worship services we want to experience the presence of God as we express honor, gratitude, awe, humility and brokenness before Him. Our walk with God should be a daily and consistent focus.


A desire to be like Him should flow from effective worship. God desires us to come out and be separate so we can show the world his holiness (Lev. 11:45, 1 Thes. 4:7). We believe holiness is bigger than just avoiding sin & should focus on developing a taste and passion for God and a hunger for righteousness. Jesus must be the Lord of our lives.


We believe that Christianity is a one-another religion. We are the family of God! We share a common faith, common blood and a common love for God and each other. Our commitment is to love, forgive, encourage, serve, lay down our lives, and to share our possessions and our hearts with each other (Rom. 12 , 1 Cor. 12, Gal. 5:13-26).


We are committed, not to only baptizing people into Christ (Acts 2:38, Eph. 4:1-7) but to growing, training and equipping disciples for kingdom-life (Eph. 4:11-16). We recognize the biblical mandate to help each other grow and we continue to believe in accountability, seeking and giving biblical advice (Proverbs) and corporate prayer.


Our church is a church built on the biblical concept of ministering to the world’s hurts and needs. Jesus’ goal in life was to give up his life for others (Jn. 12:24-26). The servant-heart of sacrifice – showing concern for others and a willingness to give up time and money – is deeply rooted in OT and NT themes.


We are committed to testify to the world that Jesus is our Lord and Savior (1 Pet. 2:9-10; 1 Pet. 3:15). Evangelism should be personal and natural. We will provide small groups as well as larger meetings to encourage a deep commitment to sharing the good news.


We are committed to making a difference in our world around us. Jesus taught that his followers are the salt, light, and leaven in a world that needs to elevate its morals and standards (Matt. 5:13-16). We want to influence our neighbors through marriage help, child-rearing classes, generosity, meals, adoptions, helping widows and orphans, the poor and sick both in our community and in our world.

The Soldout Movement

Distinguishing Core Convictions

What distinguishes the ICC from the ICOC?


We Are A Bible Church, Not Simply A New Testament Church

2 Timothy 3:14-17, 2 Peter 3:15-16
Technically speaking, the word “Scripture” in this passage refers to only the Old Testament. Now, through the inspiration of the Spirit, we believe that it applies to the New Testament as well.

Colossians 2:13-14
We believe the Old Testament applies to our lives – as much as the New Testament – except for the Mosaic Law and any teaching in the New Testament that supersedes the Old Testament.


“Be Silent Where The Bible Speaks, And Speak Where The Bible Is Silent”

Genesis 2:19
In applying scriptural principles to build the visible church, we believe we must obey God’s Word, but where the Bible does not prohibit a practice or name, we are free to use our God-given creativity.

1 Corinthians 10:23
We are free to practice or name something as long as it does not contradict the Scriptures.


Discipling Is A Command Of God And Not Optional

Matthew 28:19-20, Colossians 1:28-29, John 15:15
The dynamic in this relationship begins as a teacher/student relationship and then matures to a more peer/peer relationship.

2 Timothy 2:1-3
Discipling is teaching obedience to scripture and is detailed in the “one another” passages: “love one another,” “instruct one another,” “confess your sins to each other,” “pray for each other,” etc.


A Central Leadership With A Central Leader

Numbers 27:12-23, Exodus 18:12-26, Judges 21:25, 1 Corinthians 4:15-17, Titus 1:5
Throughout God’s Word, when His people were unified, there was a strong central leadership and a godly central leader. (Examples: Moses, Joshua, David and of course Jesus and the Apostles.) Local congregations had an overseeing evangelist who unified the disciples “everywhere in every church.” In the first century, congregations were a collective movement – not autonomous, not self-governing.

Acts 15:19-24, Acts 21:24
In the New Testament, Jesus is the leader of “the Movement!” Uniquely, when He ascends to Heaven, Peter takes on this responsibility as “the apostle to the Jews,” since for the first seven years of Christianity only Jews became Christians. Interestingly, after Paul became “the apostle to the Gentiles,” the leadership of the movement by Acts 15 had passed to Jesus’ oldest half-brother James. At the Jerusalem Council, James, after listening to both sides of the circumcision issue, gives his singular authoritative “judgment,” which is then bound on all the churches.


The Dream Of The Evangelization Of The Nations In THIS Generation

Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8, Colossians 1:6 & 23, 1 Timothy 2:3-4
If the world was evangelized in the first century, we can certainly do it again in the twenty-first century! This will be accomplished through every disciple making disciples, and every disciple having discipling relationships.
