Who Are We?
The Christian and Missionary Alliance is a worldwide family of Christians mobilized to fulfill the Great Commission by living out the fullness of Jesus Christ in personal experience and building His Church worldwide. Today, there are more than 2,000 Alliance churches in the United States and more than 20,000 fellowships in 81 countries around the world, where nearly 5 million Christians call themselves “Alliance,” united by an unquenchable passion to reach their communities with the Good News of God’s love through Jesus Christ.
The Christian and Missionary Alliance is committed to providing access to the Good News where no access yet exists, always being mindful of the Great Commission given by our Lord Jesus Christ to “go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. ” (Matthew 28:19-20).
We are Christian because we believe and follow Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We are missionary because we are committed to reaching people at home and around the world who have yet to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.
The Christian and Missionary Alliance traces its roots to the ministry and vision of Dr. Albert B. Simpson, a Presbyterian pastor. Motivated by the spiritual needs of the metropolitan multitudes in North America, in 1887 Dr. Simpson launched a vibrant ministry of sharing the Good News of God’s love and teaching the Word of God. He was joined by people from varied denominational backgrounds who also desired to share this Good News around the world. They were compelled by a sense of urgency to take this message to all nations because of the declaration of Jesus that “the Good News about the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14).
The Danville Alliance Church, a congregation of The Christian and Missionary Alliance, has been part of the local community since 1923. It is our desire as a church to be a community of Christians where others can come and receive…
…solid, no-nonsense, Bible-focused preaching and teaching.
…an atmosphere in which each individual can grow to their full spiritual potential.
…meaningful interaction and cooperation with followers of Jesus Christ who seek to show genuine compassion and love, offering caring relationships and opportunity to serve God and others.
