The essence of our calling is summed up in a single word:  Love.  In a world that has romanticized and sexualized love, the church has a beautiful opportunity to show the love of God Himself.  Yet, each local church must ask, “Have we confused being ‘nice' or ‘neighborly’ for being truly loving?  Do the people of our community see us as a loving people?  Are we dependent upon the Spirit to live His loving fruit through us?"


We celebrate that our God is a speaking God who has revealed Himself to us.  The Bible is our inspired text which He will never contradict.  We are commissioned to proclaim His message in word and deed.  We will “not be ashamed of the gospel” but serve as “Christ’s ambassadors”.  And so we ask ourselves, “Are we students of the Scripture?    Do our sermons and life message arise from the Word?   Do we have a listening ear for His voice?  Are our words and lives proclaiming His truth?  Do we both ‘show' and ‘tell’ the truth?"


While He who is “not willing that any should perish” calls us to take his loving message to everyone, the Alliance family is being called in particular to prayerfully seek to Reach:

  • People on the move:  The world’s population is shifting and nations are coming to our neighborhoods.  Is our church fully participating in this unprecedented opportunity to share the gospel?
  • People of all ages:  Has our church been guilty of seeing children, the disabled, the senior adult, or anyone as less important than everyone else?
  • People lacking access:  As 4,075 people groups are still to be reached, have we joined the Alliance family in taking seriously our assignment to participate in bringing the gospel to them?


To accomplish the call God has given to us, we must see the entire body of Christ mobilized for Kingdom service.  May God allow us to launch new waves of godly people as full participants in Christ’s service:  evangelizing, church planting, generously giving, boldly praying, joyfully creating . . .So, as a church, we would do well to ask ourselves, “Does our congregation know their spiritual gifting?  Have we found meaningful ways to serve Christ through our gifts?  What hindrances do people encounter when wanting to be more engaged in Kingdom service?   What can our church do to open the door to service more widely?"


What The Christian and Missionary Alliance believes is foundational in its teachings about God and how He relates to us and how we relate to Him. Based on His written Word, the Bible, we are compelled to serve God and the people of His world. We live and die by these words, and believe they bring the only life worth living—one wholly committed to the King Jesus.

There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Deuteronomy 6:4,  Matthew 5:48 Matthew 28:19

Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness and peace.  Philippians 2:6-11,  Luke 1:34-38,  1 Peter 3:18Hebrews 2:9, Romans 5:9, Acts 2:23-24Hebrews 8:1Matthew 26:64

The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.  John 14:15-18John 16:13Acts 1:8John 16:7-11

The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.  2 Peter 1:20-212 Timothy 3:15-16

Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God: he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.  Genesis 1:27Romans 3:23,  1 Corinthians15:20-23Revelation 21:8Revelation 21:1-4

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God. Titus 3:4-7

It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.  1 Thessalonians 5:23, Acts 1:8Romans 6:1-14

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age.  Matthew 8:16-17,James 5:13-16

The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church,  which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Ephesians 1:22-23, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 2:41-47

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment. 1 Corinthians 15:20-23, John 5:28-29

The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and premillennial. This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service. Luke 21:27, Titus 2:11-14
