(Adopting Orgs) Organizations Using the COR and ICCP Documents
“The Kingdom of Heaven is like leaven!” We trust that our work is a Kingdom work and so we also trust it will spread like leaven. Here are examples of organizations using the Coalition on Revival documents and/or the International Church Council Project documents as part of major resolutions and/or directives for their organizations, spheres of influence, or country. We pray there will soon be many more to add to this list.
We encourage the wide use of these documents and ask only that copyrights remain intact and credit be given to Coalition on Revival or to the International Church Council Project respectively. If you have information of other organizations using these documents, please let us know so we can add them to this list.
Christian Action Network – www.ChristianAction.org.za/
CAN is a coalition of 40+ organizations, mostly in Africa, committed to the transformation of the African nations in the name of Jesus Christ. CAN used significant portions of the International Church Council Project documents in The Franschhoek Declaration.
Evangelical Theological Society – http://www.etsjets.org/
“Members of the Evangelical Theological Society adopted the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy Nov. 16 to clarify the organization’s position on Scripture.
Adoption of the Chicago Statement is aimed at allowing the organization to exclude members or potential members who hold aberrant theological positions, such as “open theism,” that undermine biblical inerrancy.
Members attending ETS’ 58th annual meeting voted 171 (90 percent) to 19 to adopt the resolution put forth by the organization’s executive committee in 2004 and approved by the membership at the 2005 meeting. At this year’s meeting, members voted to add the statement to ETS’ bylaws to give the organization a clearer definition of the phrase “inerrancy of Scripture” as used in the ETS statement of faith.”

Transform World – www.Transform-World.net
TW is an international organization serving to network Christian leaders and organizations in order to transform the world through the application of Bible principles and theology to every area of human life and endeavor. TW is using major portions of the Coalition on Revival Worldview Documents (also known as the 17 Sphere Documents) in the Transform World Connections Handbook which is being given to conferees.
We believe the above examples are similar to a strong wind blowing across a field of seed-ripe dandelions. May the Lord bless to His own glory until the “earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:13, 14).
