What does it mean to be a Christian?
Christain means "someone who loves Jesus." It was a word invented in the city of Antioch when followers of Jesus were inviting people to become disciples of Jesus like them. Originally intended as an insult, Christian means someone who follows Jesus, loves Jesus, and wants to be like Jesus. Before being called Christians, followers of Jesus were called The Way. Becoming a Christian begins when we acknowledge who Jesus is: the Savior who has created a way for us to be forgiven for all of our evils and wrongs (which we call sins), and the Lord who is sovereign over the universe. The Christian life matures as we learn how we are a part of God's story in the Bible, how to become like Jesus from the Bible and the Church, and practice the disciples of prayer, worship, charity, and fellowship. Along the way, we invite others to join us in being disciples of Jesus and teach them what we have learned. This is The Way.
What is "The Alliance" anyway? Is that a cult?
Not a cult - we promise! We are a global family of people who love Jesus and want to invite others to love him as well. Born of a Christian holiness society and a missionary movement (both founded by a man named A.B. Simpson), The Alliance has been faithfully sending missionaries, starting churches, and making disciples for over 100 years. You can see all that we believe and do on this website. We are completely transparent and would love to talk with you about how you can be a part of God's work in the world.
