The Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA) is an evangelical, Jesus-centered missions and church-planting movement with the deeper Christian life at its heart. Rather than just a denomination intent on building its own kingdom, we strive to be a people who through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the Word of God, advance His Kingdom .
The Alliance movement began in the 1880s when our founder, Dr. A.B. Simpson, witnessed the physical and spiritual plight of New York City’s homeless, downtrodden, and marginalized populations. Moved by his great love for Jesus and lost people, Simpson devoted his life to sharing Jesus’ light in both word and deed with the city and, ultimately, the nations. Since then the movement has blossomed into a denomination that has numerous congregations throughout the United States and the world. (Click here for the history of the C&MA)
Our calling remains unchanged. We are committed to being points of light-sharing good news to the poor, comforting the brokenhearted, proclaiming freedom for the captives, and releasing prisoners from darkness, all in Jesus’ Name. We’re a people with an uncompromising drive to go!
