The Joy of Access

Missions Conference 2014-15

This year’s theme celebrates the overwhelming joy we share in having access to the gospel of Jesus Christ. From the overflow of that joy comes our passion to carry His message of grace, hope, mercy, and love to parts of our country and areas of our world with little or no gospel access.

Overwhelmed by the Gospel

His Joy

I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. John 15:11

His Love

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

His Mercy

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3

His Peace

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

His Hope

‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ Jeremiah 29:11

His Grace

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8—9

The Overflow of the Gospel

Jesus’ love Cannot be contained Compels us to care Therefore, in Christ we go

How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news. Romans 10:15

In and through The Alliance there are:

  • 500,000 people worshiping in more than 2,000 churches in the United States
  • 6,000,000 people worshiping in more than 20,000 churches worldwide

Moved by his love and empowered by his spirit,

We preach the good news, baptize and disciple new believers, dig wells, build hospitals and schools, feed refugees, heal broken marriages, plant churches and train church leaders, and provide aid to disaster victims—all in the name of Jesus.

Through the worldwide Alliance family,

  • Every 4 minutes, someone prays to receive Christ.

  • Every hour, 3 patients receive physical and spiritual care through Alliance medical work.

  • Every week, nearly 3,000 new believers are baptized.

  • Every month, 250 churches and church groups join the worldwide Alliance family.

  • Every day via 43 radio broadcasts, people who have had no gospel witness hear the good news.

  • Every year, nearly 10,000 students are trained for ministry through 125 Alliance theological schools.

Creating access to the Gospel

All who call upon the Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13

But how can they call on a Lord they’ve never heard of?

How many doors does a person have to knock on before finding someone who can tell them about Jesus?

Not everyone has equal access to the gospel.

  • Some have high access where it would take knocking on 6 doors

  • Some have low access where it would take knocking on 500 doors

  • Some have no access where it would take knocking on 30,000 doors

82% of Alliance international workers are located in parts of the world with little or no access to the gospel.

Together we are creating access around the world so that all will have an opportunity to hear the good news of the gospel!
