About the Christian & Missionary Alliance

Founded by A.B. Simpson in 1887, The Alliance was not originally a denomination, but an inter-denominational missionary society, shared among believers from many churches who held a common passion for a deep and powerful walk with the Lord Jesus Christ, compelling them to reach people in every nation with the Good News of the Gospel.

Eventually, the C&MA did organize as a denomination, which today includes 2,000 churches in the United States and many times more overseas, with over 6 million believers in more than 23,000 Alliance fellowships throughout 70 countries of the world.  Currently there are more than 800 Alliance international worker serving overseas today in 50 countries.

From the beginning, Dr. Simpson and the C&MA family has treasured Christ as our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King.  Often called "The Four-Fold Gospel," the centerpiece of Alliance conviction has always been Christ Jesus Himself, who saves us from our sin and death, cleanses and sets us apart for a holy life by His Spirit, heals our brokenness, sickness, & disease, and is coming again to reign.  These ministries of Christ for the world are represented in our Alliance logo, featuring the cross, the laver, the pitcher, and the crown.

Because The Alliance is just that- an alliance of Christ-centered churches- there is a wide variety of styles and characteristics throughout the Christian & Missionary Alliance movement.  North Ridge Church of the C&MA is living the call together, deeply committed and fully engaged in the mission of our Alliance family, and enjoys the covering and accountability of denominational relationship.  We meanwhile maintain our responsibility for Biblical church leadership, discipleship, and ministry in our community.
