Our Beliefs

Christian & Missionary Alliance Doctrinal Statement


The Trinity

There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Deut. 6:4 / Matt. 5:48 / Matt. 28:19

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is both God and man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice that all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood. He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great High Priest. He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness and peace.
Philippians 2:6-11 / Luke 1:36-38 / I Peter 3:18 / Hebrews 2:9 / Romans 5:9 / Acts 2:23-24 / Hebrews 8:1 / Matthew 26:64

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is a divine person, sent to dwell, guide, teach, empower the believer, convict the world of sin, and convince the world of His righteousness and of judgment.
John 14:15-18 / John 16:13 / Acts 1:9

God's Word

The Old and New Testaments, without error as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
2 Peter 1:20-21 / 2 Timothy 3:15-16


Sin's Consequence

Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God: he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only by Jesus' works. The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.
Genesis 1:27 / Romans 3:23 / Revelation 21:8


Repent & Believe

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.
2 Corinthians 5:17 / Titus 3:4-7

Purpose for Believers

It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service. This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 / Acts 1:8 / Romans 6:1-14


Form and Function

The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations. The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Eph. 1:22-23 / MatT. 28:19-20 / Acts 2:41-47

Church Provision

Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age. Matthew 8:16-17 / James 5:13-16



There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment. 1 Corinthians 15:20-23 / John 5:28-29

The Second Coming

The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and pre-millennial. This is the believer’s blessed hope and is a vital truth that is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.
Hebrews 10:37 / Luke 21:27 / Titus 2:11-14
