We are a part of a movement of churches known as the Christian and Missionary Alliance. The C&MA is part of a Christ-centered global movement more than 6 million strong. Our Acts 1:8 family—inspired by Jesus’ love and empowered by His Spirit—is passionate to bring the good news about Him to our neighborhoods and world.
Our vision is to glorify God by knowing, loving, obeying, and serving Him through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our mission is to be a Christ-centered, Bible-teaching, missions-oriented community of believers who seek to demonstrate the Word of God in our daily lives.
In The Alliance, we believe that our mission blends both the concept of being and doing. In being with Jesus and sitting at His feet, our lives are transformed. As we grow in relationship with Him, we desire to know Him more deeply as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King.
In 1887, the C&MA was born out of the vision of Rev. A.B. Simpson, a Presbyterian pastor from Canada. Simpson believed that Christ was not only his Savior, but also his Sanctifier, and Healer through dramatic spiritual encounters that changed the direction of his life. The C&MA was formed as a missionary society and not a denomination.
Today, the C&MA focuses on planting churches in the United States and overseas. Alliance international workers minister among the least reached peoples planting churches and training national church leaders, providing relief and development assistance, medical and dental care, and microenterprise projects. More than 2,000 churches in the U.S. minister Christ’s love to their communities and cities.
