Around the world, our denominational family, The Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA), celebrates Jesus. As one of our own says, “There is no heart He cannot reach, no wound He cannot heal, no bondage He cannot break…” Jesus said He came for the sick, not the well (Mark 2:17), and we’ve experienced His divine restoration. That’s why we’re passionate to take His good news—in word and deed—to those desperate for hope in every segment of our broken world. Because of who He is and what He’s done, we are compelled to “go”!
Our church is part of thousands of C&MA churches in the U.S. that send and support hundreds of international workers who care for the sick, befriend the lonely and introduce spiritually impoverished people to the One who releases us all from the curse of sin and sting of death. Today, the C&MA is caring for the refugee, the sick, and the lost through relief work, clinics, schools and acts of compassion. This gives us opportunity to share the message of Christ’s saving love. We also make it a priority to plant churches so that those who come to Christ will have the support and discipleship of a church family.
Beginning in 2018, our church launched a partnership with IncaLink International, a ministry dedicated to reach the 300 million youth of Latin America with Christ's irresistable love.
As part of that partnership, we've specifically invested in Casa Elizabeth, a Christian foster home for teenage moms. Many of the girls coming to Casa Elizabeth are victims of sexual abuse and needing a place to find safety, help and healing. Here is one young woman's story of healing in Christ:
We help by providing for some of the physical needs, special projects and even a new van in 2022!
The Great Commission Fund (GCF) is the funding mechanism of the C&MA that underwrites a vast majority of the ministries of the more than 700 international workers and U.S. church planters. This financial resource empowers these workers to focus on their callings and ministries rather than fundraising. Giving to the GCF is one of the best ways we can participate in fulfilling God’s plan; providing all peoples, in every segment of society, the opportunity to encounter His beloved Son, Jesus.
The GCF allows workers to reach people with the good news of Jesus through diverse outreaches such as:
