Grace: This is an extraordinary gift bestowed upon us by God, freely given and undeserved. It is His unmerited favor extended to all who have life, allowing us to uplift His Son, Jesus Christ, who has opened the path to the Father. Since grace is a gift, there is no action or effort we can undertake to earn it. And so as we acknowledge and embrace this incredible aspect of God’s character, Grace is also a common theme in our many ministries and expressions of worship here.
Hmong: The Hmong people are rich in culture, history and are very family-orientated. Similar to the Hebrews in the Old Testament, the Hmong people have a compelling narrative of endurance, persecution, bravery, and triumph that remains unfamiliar to many around the world. Given the challenging nature of our history, it is solely by God’s grace that the Hmong people continue to exist as they do today. At Grace Hmong Alliance Church, while our primary outreach is to the Hmong community, we recognize the growing presence of a younger generation yearning to connect with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, irrespective of age or background. As a result, we go beyond Hmong-specific services and devotions and also offer English services. We specialize in what we refer to as “Hmonglish,” a means of delivering the Word of God that bridges the gap between the older Hmong generation and the more English-oriented younger generation.
Alliance: The U.S. Christian & Missionary Alliance is part of a Christ-centered global movement of more than 6 million strong. Our Acts 1:8 family—inspired by Jesus’ love and empowered by His Spirit—is passionate to bring the Good News about Him to our neighborhoods and eventually to the ends of the earth.
“The Christian and Missionary Alliance in the United States does not “have” Hmong churches, Vietnamese churches, African churches, Japanese churches, Arabic churches, and so forth. There is no single corporate entity that possesses local congregations. The Church is the Bride of Christ. We do not own English-speaking churches or Spanish-speaking churches. Yes, The Alliance in the United States is a Spanish-speaking church. In some congregations, we speak Creole. We are an Arabic-speaking, a Jorai- and Radai-speaking, an Amharic-speaking, a Navajo-speaking, an English-speaking, a Mandarin-speaking, a Cantonese-speaking, and a Japanese-speaking church. The U.S. Alliance family is Cambodian, Laotian, Thai, Portuguese, Dakota, and Ojibwa. Together we constitute the Alliance family—a remarkable testimony to the power of the gospel to reconcile and bring together a vast array of redeemed men and women in common Christian community and mission”
Church: According to God’s revelation in His word, the church is not merely a physical structure or limited to Sunday worship. It is a divine mandate, intricately connected to the concept of the Body of Christ, where Christ serves as the head. Each person within the church is a vital and indispensable part of this body. Our existence is rooted in God’s grace, and in response to that grace, we strive to extend it to others. It is our prayer that as you become acquainted with us, you will witness the tangible presence of God’s grace and love among us, as we wholeheartedly embrace the life to which Christ has called us.
