Kingdom investment Financial resources are a blessing, a result of God’s provision and a tool to be used to worship God. Followers of Christ acknowledge that material possessions belong to God and the return of money to the local church is an investment in the Kingdom. What should I know about Kingdom investing? It is a privilege to participate in the work of the local church by contributing cheerfully, sacrificially and generously (emphasis on 2 Corinthians 8 and 9). Through prayer, seek a clear conscience in regard to investing in the work God has given CCC to accomplish. If you are visiting or you are not yet a follower of Christ, make today’s priority to focus on the larger issue: the relationship God offers through Jesus.

CCC is a part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA), an international denomination with missions at the forefront. The C&MA began in 1887 when Dr. Albert B. Simpson created the Evangelical Missionary Alliance, which focused on bringing the hope of Christ to the most neglected missionary fields, and the Christian Alliance, which helped people pursue the deeper Christian life. In 1897, the two groups merged as a parachurch organization, and in 1974 the C&MA reorganized as a denomination. Today, the C&MA supports 800 missionaries in 58 nations and partners with churches in 81 countries and territories.

Unlike other organizations, the C&MA does not require its missionaries to raise their own support. Instead, missionaries and their ministries are financed through The Great Commission Fund (GCF). Attendees at C&MA churches and friends can give to this fund regularly, which enables missionaries to reach lost people for Christ, trains national leaders, provides medical help to needy patients and helps start new C&MA Churches in the US. CCC attendees can designate gifts to the GCF. For more details on the GCF, visit
