Church Multiplication

The Alliance began with one church plant—the Gospel Tabernacle in New York City. It grew into a healthy congregation reaching the surrounding community and training and sending workers and leaders to reach the world.

From this one church, today—over 130 years later—more than 25,000 fellowships and nearly 6 million believers have emerged. Clearly, the Great Commission is fulfilled when Christian leaders GO plant churches or equip and SEND others to do so.

Church Planting Sunday 2020

NOW is the time to plan our upcoming 2020 calendars. Let's join with other Alliance churches across the nation on Sunday, February 23, 2020, to celebrate Church Planting Sunday. Resources will be made available to help share the vision for church multiplication. It's worth it!

Church Planting for Church Multiplication

Church planting involves an individual, a mother church, and/or a group of people starting a church to engage a community through gospel proclamation and demonstration, resulting in Kingdom addition.

If Church planting is Kingdom addition, we will become an Alliance that plants churches with a reproducing DNA so that when they are planted, they will plant other churches that plant churches that plant churches, resulting in Kingdom multiplication.

Alliance Church Multiplication

We want to advance a church-planting multiplication movement throughout The Alliance in order to fulfill the Great Commission. We see local churches discovering, developing, and deploying emerging leaders who plant churches that multiply.

  1. CHAMPION: We will advocate the biblical priority of church planting by encouraging, empowering, and vision casting.
  2. PARTNER: Together as a Christ-centered, Acts 1:8 family of churches, districts, schools, and regions, we will accomplish more.
  3. RESOURCE: We will provide necessary resources to districts and churches in order to expand the capacity of influential disciples who plant healthy, reproducing churches.

Is God Calling your Church to Become a Greenhouse Church?

A greenhouse provides a healthy environment for plants to grow. Greenhouse Churches provide a healthy atmosphere for Christian leaders to develop as church planters.
