THE GREAT COMMISSION
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. —Jesus
Christ’s Great Commission is the Call of The Christian and Missionary Alliance—it’s why we exist! We are compelled by Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations. Reaching the lost is a cause for which we are willing to go to the ends of the earth—this is no small task!
So what is it going to take?
We need to work together. Completing the Great Commission will require the mobilization of every fully devoted disciple of Jesus Christ. Through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, the Alliance is committed to developing a Christ-centered, Acts 1:8, family.
Funding this work is no small task. It takes approximately $40,000 annually to keep an individual worker on the field. Through the generous and sacrificial giving of people like you, workers are sent to fullfill this calling of Jesus in all the earth.

Following Jesus is not intended to be a solitary journey. As a family of believers, we uphold each other in the faith, bring comfort when needed, celebrate life together, and combine resources to accomplish God’s work. We can do much more together than we can do apart. That is the challenge our founder, A. B. Simpson, gave to believers many years ago. And that is what has made The Alliance one of the most effective missions organizations the world has known.
When it comes to sharing the reason for our hope, faith, and joy, we reach more people when we work together. Our partnership in building Christ’s Church worldwide is getting the job done!
We hope you, too, will join the thousands of people who regularly participate in the worldwide work of Alliance Great Commission Ministries.
How are we building community?
We do things in community, relating to each other in ways that honor Christ and build up His Kingdom. Jesus instructed His followers to “Love the Lord you God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37â49).
Love is not optional for Christians. We who have experienced the great love of the Father want to share His love with others. Today, The Alliance 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 make it a priority to establish churches so that those who come to Christ will have the support and discipleship of a church family.
