What is Christian Missionary Alliance?
OUR PASSION -The Great Commission
Jesus commissioned His followers to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). This command expresses the heart of the Father–to reconcile lost people to Himself. Captured by Jesus’ love for us, we desire others to enjoy the same genuine relationship with Christ. Our driving passion -why we exist- is to know Christ and complete His Commission. This compels us to reach our own communities with the good news of Jesus. But the Alliance family doesn’t stop in our own cities. Reaching the lost is a cause for which we are willing to go, quite literally, to the ends of the earth.
OUR CALLING – The Greatest Commandment
Jesus instructed His followers to “‘Love the Lord God with all your heart and with all your soul and with your entire mind… Love your neighbor as yourself ‘” (Matthew 22:37-39) Love is not optional for Christians. We who have experienced the great love of the Father want to share His love with others. Today, the Alliance is caring for the refugee, the sick, and the lost through relief work, clinics, schools and acts of compassion. This gives us the opportunity to share the message of Christ’s saving love. We make it a priority to establish churches so that those who come to Christ will have the support and discipleship of a church family. Love in action–word matched by deed–this is the Alliance.
