The Alliance of Renewal Churches
The mission of the Alliance of Renewal Churches (ARC) is to empower leaders and congregations to live fully into their God-given destinies through building kingdom friendships and strategic alliances, practicing intentional leader care and development, and providing ministry training for the members of congregations. This mission is carried out in the context of growing in authentic relationship with one another.
The atmosphere of life and ministry in the ARC is set within the safe boundaries of historic orthodox theology, our non-negotiables as a network, and an intertwining of three streams in the Christian faith: evangelical, sacramental, and charismatic.
In the ARC we experience life and ministry in the context of kingdom friendships. We highly value relationships that are authentic and safe. To be a member in the Alliance of Renewal Churches is to be part of a band of brothers and sisters who are for each other and against anything that will cause us harm, a band that will not let anyone settle for less than all God has for us.
While providing a safe place for kingdom relationships, we do not view them as an end in themselves. Rather, they are the context in which we are transformed to think, speak, and act more like Jesus. Jesus was a safe place for the lost and searching, the wounded and weary. At the same time, he was also dangerous for and to—dangerous for the kingdom of God and a threat to the plans of the enemy.
