AboutFamilyRegions › Africa

The first Alliance missionaries entered Africa in 1884, serving in the Belgian Congo (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo). By 1892, nearly 30 Alliance missionaries were sharing the good news of Jesus throughout the continent.

Today, The Alliance has national churches in nine African countries, with an inclusive membership of more than 1 million believers. During the past decade, more than 400,000 people have come to faith in Christ through Alliance ministries in Africa. The advances experienced across Alliance fields testify to God’s grace and sovereignty. God has used Alliance workers and fellow Africans as bridges to His redemption. The coming years will reveal shifting roles between the Alliance mission and local churches. As African churches become increasingly significant bearers of the gospel, reaching ethnic groups that have traditionally remained resistant, we will see Africa claimed for the gospel and for Jesus Christ.
