|About||We desire to know Jesus Christ as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King and to complete His Great Commission.|
Together as a Christ-centered, Acts 1:8 family,
we will love, proclaim, reach, and launch.
We Will Love
The essence of our calling is summed up in a single word: Love. In a world that has romanticized and sexualized love, the church has a beautiful opportunity to show the love of God Himself. Yet, each local church must ask, “Have we confused being ‘nice’ or ‘neighborly’ for being truly loving? Do the people of our community see us as a loving people? Are we dependent upon the Spirit to live His loving fruit through us?“

We Will Reach
While He who is “not willing that any should perish” calls us to take His loving message to everyone, the Alliance family is being called in particular to prayerfully seek to reach:
People on the Move: The world’s population is shifting and nations are coming to our neighborhoods. Is our church fully participating in this unprecedented opportunity to share the gospel?
People Overlooked: Has our church been guilty of seeing children, the disabled, the senior adult, or anyone as less important than everyone else?
People Lacking Access: As 4,075 peoples are still to be reached, have we joined the Alliance family in taking seriously our assignment to participate in bringing t
