For more than 120 Years, Alliance people have been focused on Jesus. He alone is our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King. We desire to see every man, woman, and child come to a personal relationship with Him.
We believe the local church is God’s instrument for bringing the message of Jesus to the whole earth. Because of that we focus our efforts and resources into developing dynamic, healthy local churches—in the United States and across the world. We work to establish communities of Christ that will multiply themselves, resulting in self-sustaining, evangelical churches within the reach of all people.
Dr. A.B. Simpson founded the Alliance in the late 1800s after witnessing the physical and spiritual plight of New York City’s homeless, downtrodden, and marginalized populations. Simpson devoted his life to sharing Jesus’ light—in word and deed—with the city and, ultimately, the nations. Today, there are more than 2,000 Alliance churches in the United States, and approximately 20,000 fellowships in 81 countries around the world with nearly 5 million Christians calling themselves “Alliance.”
