Our Core values

the great commission

Jesus' last words before His glorious ascension into Heaven were given as a commission to His disciples.  This Great Commission remains a command - a mandate - to every believer in Jesus Christ.  His Great Commission is the Call of The Christian and Missionary Alliance.

Discover why The Alliance is blessed as one of the world's leaders in successful church-planting and missions initiatives.  Throughout its history, The Alliance has been recognized by its scripturally grounded views on specific tenets of the Christian faith.

What The 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.

What we believe

What we believe determines what we value, and what we value demonstrates how we live.  The Alliance has developed seven Core Values that flow out of our passion for Jesus.  These Core Values are the motivation behind the mission.

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, God incarnate.  He came in human form to sacrifice Himself, once for all, that we might not perish but have eternal life. This is the bedrock of our belief - the spiritual DNA of The Alliance. Our family tree bears the fruit of the Deeper Life, Fourfold Gospel, and the "Living Out" of Alliance Core Values - all fueling our uncompromising call to "go!" wherever and whenever God leads.

Alliance founder Dr. A.B. Simpson articulated the core "theology" of The Alliance.  As we seek to know Jesus personally, being one with Him, He will reveal Himself as our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King.  Simpson called this theology the Fourfold Gospel, the Christological summary on which the spiritual DNA of The Christian and Missionary Alliance is built.
