Iconic is defined as someone or something that is representation of something else. Something that is iconic is characteristic of an icon-an image, emblem, idol or hero. An icon is a visual representation of something that represents a person, place, object, idea, or group of people. More recent, iconic refers to highly original, influential, or unique works of art, artists or performers.
In short, an icon is a symbol or person that represents something great.
Both Dr. Martin Luther King and the Eiffel Tower are considered iconic; the person representing the Civil Rights Movement and the tower being symbolic of Paris. Bishop James Varick and the A.M.E. Zion logo are iconic; both symbolic of the Freedom Church.
In 2019, the expected outcome of the Ebenezer A.M.E. Zion Church is to be icons of love & faith as we continue to Raise through Worship, Reach through Missions and Rise through Discipleship. We envision that by through the power of the Holy Spirit our faith & love will enable us to nurture healthy connections between Home + Church + School/Work and the World in an iconic way- iconically.
