AboutFamilyWorld › Mexico

Alliance missionaries arrived in Mexico in 1954, and today the C&MA national church consists of 6,800 inclusive members. Our workers are involved in higher education, leadership development, and more. In Guadalajara, where less than 3 out of every 100 people profess to be Christians, Alliance missionaries have planted five churches. About half of Guadalajara’s 5.6 million residents are from the middle and upper classes.
