CMA Logo

 

The Purpose of Bloomingdale Alliance is to grow a healthy great commission church that ministers to all individuals at every age level in order to evangelize and make disciples in our community and beyond.

The Emblems in the logo of the Christian and Missionary Alliance represent the centrality of Christ in the Christian Gospel.

The Cross stands for salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God's son.

The Laver represents sanctification, a daily cleansing from sin and power for service through the indwelling Christ.

The Pitcher speaks of oil, a symbol of divine life and physical healing that comes from Jesus.

The Crown symbolizes the return to earth of the Lord Jesus Christ as King of kings and Lord of lords.

The Globe adds a new dimension to the long-familiar official logo of the CMA. The four Christ-centered symbols speak of God's gift of love to all peoples of every generation. They represent what Christ gives of Himself to His people so that He may present them to the Father without fault and with great joy.  Now we give because He gave. The Globe represents our mission in the world. The Lord urged His followers, as He sent them, to spread the good news throughout the land. That appeal from His heart to ours will continue until the gospel, through the efforts of His Church, has reached all peoples, and He comes again.

 

The U.S. Christian and Missionary Alliance Statement of Faith:

1. There is one God who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 5:48, Matthew 28:19). 

2. Jesus Christ is true God and true man.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.  He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust, as a substitutionary sacrifice, and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.  He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures.  He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest.  He will come again to establish His Kingdom of righteousness and peace (Phillipians 2:6-11, LUke 1:36-38, 1 Peter 3:18, Hebrews 2:9, Romans 5:0,
Acts 2:23,24, Hebrews 8:1, Matthew 26:64).

3. The Holy Spirit is a divine Person, sent to indwell, guide, teach, empower the believer and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement (John 14:15-18, John 16:13, Acts 1:8, John 16:7-11). 

4. The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men.  They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice (2 Peter 1:20,21; 2 Timothy 3:15,16). 

5. Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God: he fell through disobedience, incurring, thereby, both physical and spiritual death.  All men are born with a sinful nature, are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.  The portion of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment; and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss (Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23, 1 Corinthians 15:20-23, Revelation 21:8, Revelation 21:1-4). 

6. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God
(Titus 3:4-7). 

7. It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly, being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service.  This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion (1 Thessalonians 5:23, Acts 1:8, Romans 6:1-14).

8. Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal bodyPrayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age (Matthew 8:16,17, James 5:143-16). 

9. The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit.  Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations.  The local church is a Body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper (Ephesians 1:22,23; Matthew 28:19, 20; Acts 2:41-470. 

10. There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; for the latter, a resurrrection unto judgement (1 Corinthians 15:20-23, John 5:28, 29). 

11. The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent and will be personal, visible, and premillennial.  This is the believer's blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service (Hebrews 10:37, Luke 21:27, Titus 2:11-14).
