What is this term? Is it a classification similar to a church sect typology? I do not understand what is included in this classification, for example when I read:

"Most of the churches listed by ISM adherents as being part of the movement have no historic connection to the movement and share almost nothing with this movement other than apostolic succession. In addition, some churches or other groups which are structurally similar to each other but which do not claim apostolic succession have been claimed by ISM sources as part of their movement."

What does that mean? What groups have an "historic connection to the movement"? Is ISM a label which groups self identify as or is it a formal classification? I would like to see a quoted definition, of what the ISM is, included in the article. –BoBoMisiu (talk) 03:02, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
