Building a Movement of the Ecumenical Christian Left

Our mission is to support US churches, their members, and institutions in confronting the world’s captivity to capitalism and in claiming, embodying, and promoting the radical socialism of the Christian faith and life.

The Gospel entails a commitment not just to resisting or reforming capitalism, but to overturning it, while working toward new forms of political economy that are life-sustaining, egalitarian, and just.

We seek God’s new creation of a society marked by the interdependent health of our common earthly home, the shared enjoyment of our common wealth, and the just participation of all in our common social and political life together.

The Institute for Christian Socialism is reclaiming Christianity for a political movement that recognizes that the dictates of the Gospel are wholly incompatible with capitalism.

Support ICS

ICS isn’t just another place for hot takes on religion, capitalism and socialism. It’s the beginning of a new Christian presence in American politics, unabashedly engaged in class politics — from the grassroots to the legislature, from churches to workplaces.
