All our Theology and our Philosophy is base on two passage of the Bible, first John1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
This one was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and apart from him not one thing came into being that has come into being. In him was life, and the life was the light of humanity. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. And the second on Ephesian 4: 4-6 one body and one Spirit (just as also you were called with one hope of your calling), one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all. in one word CHRIST.
A brief history
EMMI started over 43 years ago by Archbishop Eric Michel in Quebec Canada during fall and winter 1978 -1979, the goal was the search on Historic Jesus and our Genesis of the Academic Research in Christian Theology and Apologetics Teaching Methods or in short Research, Theology and Teaching Ministry (RTTM)
Then in 2010 after been accredited as a Chaplain we became Eric Michel Ministry and Chaplaincy until 2014 when the Rt. Rev. Eric Michel get an associate with the Rt. Rev. Marie Arnold to build our organization know today as Eric Michel Ministries International and in their private life as well as spouse. We have a merge of Michel a Christian Unitarian and Arnold a Christian Baptist.
In the spring of 2017, the Rev. B. Philip Kumar, Pentecostal Church, Vadapalli India and the Rev. Xaviour Sebastian Chikwatu United Methodist of Malawi, requested to work with us.
The “Eric Michel Ministries International ministry of the Interdenominational Assembly of Churches was born upon the teaching of Christ. We are an association of members churches and para-churches serving members over 85 head churches across the world. Through our local churches and our online ministries, we provide a Seminary, a Bible Academy, a missions outreach program and resources like counselling and support committee for Ecclesiastical rules and order via our Canon Law and Ecclesiastical College (House of Bishop) and many more.
The IAoC is divided into five regions, Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania overseen by a “District Superintendent Bishop”, who provide the management and spiritual support to the churches that he is responsible.
Canada is the central headquarters in which Archbishop Eric M. Gagnon (Minister & Founder of Eric Michel Ministries International Chaplaincies”) is the international Elected Prelate and executive director of the Board of the EMMI.

The interdenominational initiative aimed at greater cooperation among Christian churches. We strive for greater mutual respect, toleration, and cooperation among other Christians. As Protestant spiritual unity suffices us, the most important in Christian ecumenism is that people focus primarily on Christ, not on separate church organizations. We all see the risen Christ at work in the lives of various Christian churches. We overcome in the faith in Christ to be one in him and love one another as a witness to the world.
Also since 2015, we offer bible studies and in 2017 an association of churches and para-churches under the Interdenominational Assembly of Churches MinistryWe are registered as a Not-For-Profit Religious Corporation commonly know for its Community Chaplaincy since 2010 and registered in 2014 at Corporation Canada.
We a welcoming organization, our Bible teaching reflect the fundamentalist Christian view by
“Implementing Team Impact Christian University Curriculum”,
And a partnership with Vision International University (Born Again) and being a member of the International Federation of Christian Chaplain.
As a member of the Interdenominational Assembly of Churches Ministry, we must comply with their statement of faith according to our own Creed, the Universal or the Ecumenical creeds. We do also include in our program the development of an idealistic integral alliance and universal politics grounded in the fundamental concept ONE, and the view of Christology which emphasizes the extent of Jesus Christ’s concern for the cosmos. The biblical bases for a cosmic Christology is often found in Colossians, Ephesians, and the prologue to the gospel of John know also as the Universal Christ from the Progressive Christian.
We are a welcoming and affirming Home Church under the World Organization Chart of Rights, we work together for racial justice as a “whole people of God” and we include people of all sexual orientations and genders.
Interdenominational or inter-denominational
The terms nondenominational and interdenominational are closely linked and are often used interchangeably. The difference is that the nondenominational organization does not have an affiliation with any particular Christian denomination while the interdenominational organization celebrates the strengths of many denominations. Many organizations, such as mission agencies, schools, or rescue missions, are interdenominational, drawing from many different denominations for their staff, students, or volunteers.
The Interdenominational Assembly of Churches organization strives to incorporate different practices from various denominations. An example would be the manner in which the church observes the Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:23–26)
A church may observe it monthly but may also have the elements available weekly in a private room for those whose conviction is to observe it every time the church meets. We an autonomous entity and do not ascribe to any denominational structure for leadership or accountability. Most strive to base our doctrines upon the Baptist doctrine, such as the Bible’s infallibility (John 17:17) and Jesus Christ’s being the only way to salvation (John 14:6).
Our goal is to attract people who have negative associations with denominational names. We desire to break down denominational walls in an effort to reach the lost and the floundering who may never attend a church with a denominational name.
