IOC Story & Vision

Pastor Charles & Lindsey Karuku dreamed of planting an international church for people from all walks of life where they would be able to experience the healing power of God. Through training and impartation they desired to train these believers to do the work of the ministry locally, nationally and internationally. The church began in June of 2001, just 2 months before they got married. With the help of 2 other couples IOC began in the Karuku’s house and the dream became a reality.

We have always been a church that loves God passionately and wants to share the love of God with as many people as possible. Although IOC is not a large church we have been able to impact thousands around the world through missions and church planting. As we continue to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in the U.S., Kenya, Mexico, Philippines, Pakistan and other nations, God continues to heal the broken hearted and set captives free.

Everyday IOC becomes stronger and stronger as we build new relationships and train leaders through mentorship and discipleship. Together we will see this work flourish to it’s greatest potential as God pours out his glory and unity thrives in our midst. God is doing great things at IOC and we invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when we work alongside one another and put Jesus Christ at the center of our lives.
