What We Believe
CMA DNA — the spiritual code of The Alliance.
What we believe motivates and inspires us every day. We believe that Jesus is Christ, God incarnate. Because lost people matter to God, He came in human form to sacrifice Himself, once and for all, so that we might not perish but have eternal life. This is the foundation of our belief structure—the spiritual DNA of The Alliance. Our family tree bears the fruit of the Deeper Life, Fourfold Gospel, and the “living out” of Alliance Core Values—all fueling our uncompromising call to “go” wherever and whenever God leads.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS
In The Alliance, we are Jesus people. We say, “All of Jesus,” because we’re after His Lordship, a complete transformation in our lives through His Spirit. Scripture tells us that “the same power that raised Jesus from the grave is at work within us.” If we believe that, then our lives change. We don’t get as distracted by the latest fad or the newest way to do things because our focus is on Jesus and His supremacy—in everything. We say, “All of Jesus,” because we also believe that it’s possible to believe things about Jesus but not surrender our lives to Him. It is only in that full surrender that we resonate with His heartbeat, offering the hope only He can provide to the world’s marginalized and overlooked.
You see, “All of Jesus” is not just for us; we’re redeemed for other people. That’s why the Alliance family has a 140-some year history of leaning in, together, on Jesus’ big assignment—fulfill His Great Commission. We’re about taking “All of Jesus” to “All the World”—that’s why we take His loving message to our neighbors and the nations and to the nations that have come to our neighborhoods.
