Goedel theorem basicly says that out of rich enough (=big enough) set of axioms you can derive some statements which are CORRECT statements (consistent with all axioms because they were derived from them), but which can not be proven WITHIN ONLY this given set of axioms (i.e., proof may require ADDITIONAL axioms).

I would not call that "imcompleteness" - this is misleading term - more proper is to call it "redunance" or "richness" or "openness" of math.
