LIVING THE CALL TOGETHER


As part of THE ALLIANCE worldwide denomination, we believe that Jesus is the Christ, God incarnate. He came in human form to sacrifice Himself, once for all, that we might not perish but have eternal life. Living the Call Together describes what The Alliance is and does—living out the preeminence of Jesus, fulfilling His Great Commission, in an alliance made up of churches around the world.



STATEMENT OF FAITH

CORE VALUES

ALLIANCE PERSPECTIVES


He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."


Mark 16:15



WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE WE?


Since 1887, THE ALLIANCE has served the spiritual and physical needs of millions of men, women, and children in every part of the world. Today, our global ministries encompass people in 81 countries and territories. In 70 of these, more than 700 U.S. workers are caring for the sick, befriending the lonely, and introducing spiritually impoverished people to Jesus. As we seek to share His Good News, we're strategically located in five geographic regions: AFRICA, ASIA/PACIFIC, EUROPE/MIDDLE EAST, LATIN AMERICA, and NORTH & CENTRAL ASIA.


CAMA (Compassion and Mercy Associates)

CAMA is the development and relief arm of THE ALLIANCE in the US and worldwide, helping to plant churches and serving in a variety of ministries that flesh out the good news of God's love for people - body and soul.

OUR VISION

Own the lostness of our community by:

  • Building disciples, not just our organization.
  • Mobilizing those disciples, not merely gathering.
  • Releasing assets, not protecting them.
  • Collaborating with other congregations, not competing.

OUR MISSION

We're passionate about taking God's good news, in word and deed, to those desperate for hope in our community because His written word, the Bible, compels us to. Our world is in desperate need of good news. As followers of Christ and part of THE ALLIANCE family worldwide, we're compelled by Jesus' GREAT COMMISSION to take the gospel to every man, woman, and child. Humbled by His invitation, we join Him in His work to restore and reconcile lost and broken people to Himself.


  • RECOVERY CHURCH OAK HILL

    We're a fellowship of people belonging to the Recovery Church Movement (RCM) which reaches and trains those in early recovery to grow in their faith and recovery.  Join us for a service in Oak Hill at 10:00 am on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month.

  • PROJECT: ACTS 29

    One Sunday in November, we dismiss early and put our love into action by going to the Edgewater Winn-Dixie to buy groceries for local food pantries and baby items for Grace House Pregnancy Center.  This year, 347 local families were blessed with a holiday turkey and total purchases of over $30,000 stocked our community food pantries and Grace House Pregnancy Center.

  • ROOM AT THE INN

    On nights when the temperature is forecast to drop below 40 degrees, we partner with area churches to provide the homeless with dinner, a safe and warm shelter, and breakfast the next morning.

  • "COVERINGS OF LOVE" QUILTING MINISTRY

    Every Thursday, ladies gather to create beautiful quilts and share food, fellowship, and prayer.  The cancer patients who receive these quilts are wrapped in the warmth of Christ's love.

  • MEAL PACKING

    We partner with KIDS AGAINST HUNGER to prepare and package meals for the world's hungry. These meals provide a stable, nutritional base to help families move from starvation to self-sufficiency.

  • HOT MEAL PROGRAM

    The third Friday of every month, EAC volunteers prepare and serve a free hot lunch at First United Methodist Church of New Smyrna Beach for those in need.  We also provide a free hot supper one Sunday evening a month at Edgewater United Methodist Church.

  • EVERY CHILD INITIATIVE

    Through Every Child Initiative, foster families are identified and matched with volunteers who provide support and care to foster parents as well as foster children.  These support services include babysitting, tutoring, transport, meals, lawn work, etc.  By providing emotional and physical support, we're able to sustain those called to foster care and provide consistent gospel exposure for vulnerable children in our community.

  • GOOD NEWS CLUB

    EAC sponsors a Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) Good News Club after-school program at Edgewater Public Elementary one afternoon a week.  Trained teachers tell the children about Jesus and disciple them in the Word through Bible lessons, songs, Scripture memorization, and other fun activities.

  • COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING DAY DINNER

    Including EAC, a large coalition of local churches and over 200 volunteers prepare and serve a free Thanksgiving Day meal with all the trimmings for 500-700 guests at First United Methodist Church of New Smyrna Beach.

For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you welcome Me, I was naked and you gave Me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for Me. I was in prison and you visited me. Then these righteous ones will reply, "Lord, when did we ever see You hungry and feed You? Or thirsty and give You something to drink? Or a stranger and show You hospitality? Or naked and give You clothing? When did we ever see You sick or in prison and visit You?" And the King will answer them, "Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these My brothers, you did it to Me."


Matthew 25:35-40

All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
