Our Denomination
Who is the Christian And Missionary Alliance?

The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) has been worshiping and working together since the late 1800's. Dr. A.B. Simpson, the founder of the C&MA had a vision to train young men and woman so that they could communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. The Alliance is unique because it is not a spin-off from another denomination; rather, it is an alliance of people from many different backgrounds for the sole purpose of reaching the world with the gospel. God has used the initial efforts of Dr. Simpson over the past 100 years to establish over 2,000 churches in the United States and Canada. In addition, over 15,000 churches have been established overseas through the work of our 1,200 missionaries in over 50 countries.
We are ordinary people from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds. Empowered by an extraordinary God, we come together for the common purpose of completing The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). We take faith-filled risks to see Christ’s Kingdom multiplied throughout the world.
What Is the Mission of the Christian & Missionary Alliance?
We desire to know Jesus Christ as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King and to complete His Great Commission.
What Is the Vision of the Christian & Missionary Alliance?
Our goal is to develop healthy people (fully-devoted followers of Christ), who come together to build healthy churches (unified as the Body of Christ through the indwelling Holy Spirit), that produce a bountiful harvest (completing Christ’s Great Commission).
