LAC Global Impact Festival Week

November 8-15, 2020

UNFINISHED


“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 1:6


The Great Commission is UNFINISHED. Scripture reveals when it will be completed. 

“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.” (Matthew 24:14). 

God has raised up The Alliance to be one of His end-times families to carry the gospel to the least-reached places of the world through Spirit-filled, Bible-preaching, people-loving churches. And we won’t stop until the job is done.

Join us for our annual LAC Global Impact Festival, November 8-15 as God invites us into His UNFINISHED mission.

THE ALLIANCE GREAT COMMISSION FUND

Our Faith Promise Pledge in Support of Alliance Ministries


God invites us into His UNFINISHED mission. All of Jesus for All the world takes All of us!


On Sunday, November 15, we will receive our Faith Promise for Great Commission Ministries. If you are worshipping with us onsite you may complete a Faith Promise card and place it in the baskets when leaving the sanctuary. If you are participating online, please HERE to register your faith promise for the coming year. Thank you!


Simply put, Great Commission Ministries of The Alliance fund the Great Commission (Matthew 18:18-20) by creating and maintaining gospel access among the least reached peoples in the United States and nearly 80 countries around the world, helping to support and equip a team of more than 700 international workers who are committed to bringing the light of the gospel to those living in darkness. When you give to the Great Commission fund, you join these workers in proclaiming the hope only Jesus can offer for this life and for all eternity, aligning yourself with the Father's will to finish His work and hasten the return of Christ. 


Your Faith Promise is a pledge between you and God and LAC will never ask you to fulfill your pledge. 

Thank you for your systematic and generous giving that keeps Alliance workers supported around the world!


"We need to finish our unfinished work. We need to do the things that we have thought of doing, intended to do, talk about doing, and are abundantly able to do."

-Alliance Founder A.B. Simpson
