When you join the Evangelical Alliance as a church, you'll be joining a movement of Christians around the country who are passionate about changing our communities with the good news of Jesus Christ.

With each church that decides to stand with the Evangelical Alliance, we become more effective in speaking and acting on your behalf. As we become the answer to Jesus’ prayer for a united church, we can achieve so much more together than we ever can alone.
