C&MA Affiliation

Long Hill Chapel is part of The Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA), also called The Alliance.

Who Is The Alliance?

We are ordinary people from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds. Empowered by an extraordinary God, we come together for the common purpose of completing The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). We take faith-filled risks to see Christ’s Kingdom multiplied throughout the world.

we're christ centered

Our Alliance family celebrates Jesus—the image of the invisible God, the Lord of all Creation!

“For in Christ, all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness.” Colossians 2:9-10

Our heartbeat is to know Jesus as our:

  • Savior (Acts 4:12)
  • Sanctifier (1 Corinthians 1:30)
  • Healer (James 5:15)
  • Coming King (Acts 1:11)

Because of who He is and what He’s done, we are compelled to “go!” Humbled by the open invitation He extends to us—what we call the Great Commission—we join Him in His work to restore and reconcile lost and broken people to Himself.

we rely on his spirit

Acts 1:8 is in our DNA. We are convinced it is only by the Holy Spirit’s empowerment that we can fully express Jesus’ love, compassion, and mercy to those who do not know Him.

“… But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

we are family

We are part of Christ’s Church—His chosen means to fulfill His purposes on earth, restoring a lost and broken world until He returns to reclaim it. A member of the Alliance World Fellowship (AWF), the U.S. Alliance is one of a network of national churches that make up our global family.

“ …so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” Romans 12:5

we love our neighbors

In the United States, our Alliance family extends His love to everyone we meet; we walk with our neighbors through the steep challenges life brings, introducing them to the One who offers true hope. We plant churches in spiritually thirsty neighborhoods, discipling and mentoring new believers to become healthy, passionate Jesus followers.

Our Core Values
