About C&MA

5The Alliance traces its roots to the ministry of Dr. Albert B. Simpson. A Presbyterian clergyman motivated by the spiritual needs of the metropolitan multitudes in North America, as well as by those of the unevangelized peoples in other lands. As a result, Dr. Simpson launched a vibrant ministry of evangelism and Bible teaching. 
 
The Christian and Missionary Alliance is an alliance of evangelical believers, joined together in local churches, committed to fulfilling the Great Commission given by our Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:19-20 instructs us, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (NIV)
 
We are Christian because we believe and follow Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We are missionary because we are committed to reaching unreached people with the good news of Jesus Christ. 
 
Our mission is to know Jesus Christ; exalt Him as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King; and complete His Great Commission. 
 
The Christian and Missionary Alliance is a missionary denomination committed to evangelism, discipleship, and church planting among unreached and responsive peoples worldwide. The Alliance message is that the person of Jesus Christ is adequate to meet the needs of the whole person. He is exalted as: 
  • The living Word of God.
  • The supreme revelation of divine love.
  • The sacrificial Lamb of God who alone provides for humankind.
  • The sufficient One for every need of body and soul; the only hope for a world of lost people.
  • The Coming King.
Our emphasis on the Person of Jesus Christ grows out of an unswerving loyalty to the authority and inerrancy of Scripture. Our emphasis on holy living and the Holy Spirit’s power for service grows out of the clear teaching in the New Testament and the teaching of Jesus Christ Himself.
