India Christian Mission Church is ONE (Romans 12:5), HOLY (Ephe 5:22-27)UNIVERSAL ( St.Matt 28:19,20, Acts 9:31 ) and APOSTOLIC ( Eph2:19, Acts 1:15-26 and 2:42 ) Church under valid Apostolic Succession of the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic and the Anglican lineages having the Primatial SEE at Eluru, India.

                                                

The Church was formed by the late lamented Revd.Arthur S.

The ICM is headquarterd at ELURU, India and has Chapters in US,  England,  Canada, Sri Lanka and Switzerland in which Sri lanka is a major Chapter. The late Mr.Kali Charan Benarji, the first President of the National Congress Party of India  is one of the major pioneers  who assisted Fr.Paynater in extending the Church. 

The Mission in India  has grown, full pledged Parishes were formed, number of Schools and the Social Work Projects were established. Then   Head Quarters of ICM in Eluru, India  has granted AUTONOMY to the India Christian Mission functioning in India as on the year 2000, under re-constitution as India Christian Mission Church by an unanimous resolution  and it came into existence from 22 nd March 2000.
