ICF is an evangelical church located in Moscow, dedicated to strengthening and spreading faith in the Lord Jesus Christ through â€˜making disciple-makersâ€™. If you are a Christian (or if youâ€™re just interested) we warmly welcome you to come along to our Sunday morning service, or to join one of the other activities listed on this site.
Our contemporary services are conducted in English with simultaneous translation into Russian. Most of our members are expatriates from many different countries and diverse denominational backgrounds, so youâ€™re sure to feel at home.
