Who We Are

The Christian and Missionary Alliance (the C&MA) in Canada is a group of approximately 440 local churches across Canada that aims to be a Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, and Mission-focused movement in everything we do. We send people to live on mission locally and globally.

Our ultimate goal is to fulfill the Great Commission and bring Matthew 24:14 to fruition:
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

The C&MA is taking steps to complete this mission by focusing on least-reached people groups in the world.  We aim to challenge our church members to live on mission with God, whether that be in a Canadian suburb or in a remote mountain village in Asia. Join us as we complete God’s call to tell everyone about the Good News of Jesus Christ!

The Manual

O God, with all our hearts, we long for You. Come, transform us to be Christ-centred, Spirit-empowered, Mission-focused people, multiplying disciples everywhere.

Vision Prayer

Christ-Centred

Christ as our Saviour, Sanctifier, Healer and Coming King established the Alliance theological ground rules that set the stage for a movement of God. We proclaim, with a new boldness, a full Gospel, centred on the power, person and presence of Jesus Christ. We believe in the total sufficiency of Christ to fulfill all God’s expectations for every believer. Christ must be exalted above all else!

Spirit-Empowered

Our ministry effectiveness is in direct relationship to the Spirit’s control over our lives. The deeper life recognizes the indwelling Christ transforming our lives through the Holy Spirit by substituting ourselves with His strength, His holiness, His joy, His love, His faith, and His power. Out of sanctification emerges deeper worship, richer fellowship, fuller equipping in nurture and training, a more effective evangelism, and power in missions. There is MORE!

Mission-Focus

Out of a Christ-centred and Spirit-empowered environment will emerge an unquenchable passion to be on mission with God. We have been blessed to be a blessing to the nations. Mission is not the activity of the Church, it is the IDENTITY of the Church.
