Jesus instructed His disciples, in Acts 1:8, by saying, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" (NIV 2011). At Belle Glade Alliance Church, we have taken the Lord's words as our missions strategy. For the original disciples, Jerusalem was the starting point; it was where they first received the promised Holy Spirit. From there, the church spread throughout the greater region of Judea and Samaria, before moving beyond to the rest of the known world. Our church is located in Belle Glade, Florida, and so, Belle Glade is our starting point, our Jerusalem. Our missions strategy intentionally considers how we might make disciples in our community (Jerusalem), in the greater Glades area (Judea), in the state of Florida (Samaria), and beyond to the rest of the world (ends of the earth). In order to do this effectively, we have partnered with other ministries and missionaries, and we see them as extensions of our church's ministry, partners in the gospel.
We are also committed to raising up new missionaries, both for domestic and international missions. If you feel the Lord may be calling you to such a ministry, please feel free to contact a member of our pastoral staff or contact the Alliance national office directly in regard to one of our currently open missions positions.
