The Christian & Missionary Alliance was founded by Albert Simpson.  He was a man who was on a journey to become a fully devoted follower of Christ. His journey led him to a ministry of  New York immigrants. This ministry caused him to wonder about the unreached masses around the world. It was there were he developed a burden for the worldwide evangelization of lost souls.   Simpson began assembling like-minded people with a passion for taking the Gospel to people around the world. He held evangelistic camp meetings on Sunday afternoons.These meetings were the beginning of The Christian & Missionary Alliance.  This is a group fully devoted to experiencing the 'deeper life' in Christ and completing the Great Commission. Simpson experienced a miraculous physical healing. This would be part of the foundation of the Alliance doctrine. The fourfold Gospel: Christ our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer and Coming King. Christ's Great Commission as found in the Bible is the call of The Christian & Missionary Alliance. We are compelled to make disciples of all nations .We are to reach the lost to all the ends of the earth. We send Missionaries to many countries. We also plant churches in the US in an effort to reach all people groups.
