Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Our Passion - The Great Comission
Matthew 28: 19-20
Jesus Commissioned His followers to "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
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 to complete His Commission. This compels us to reach our own communities with the good news of Jesus. For the Alliance Family it doesn't stop in our own cities. With ministries in seventy-five countries, 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
Matthew 22: 37-39
"And He said to him, 'YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND. This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' "
Love is not optional for Christians. We who have experienced the great love of the Father must share His love with others. Following the lead of our founder, Dr. A.B. Simpson, the C&MA is caring for the refugee, the sick, and the lost through relief work, clinics, schools, and other acts of compassion. This often gives us 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 that support and discipleship of a church family. Love in action - word matched by deed - this is The Christian and Missionary Alliance.
