welcome to the arc website

We're glad you stopped by to visit us!

Our mission is to empower leaders and congregations to live fully into their God-given destinies through building kingdom friendships and strategic alliances, practicing intentional LeaderCare and development, and providing ministry training for the members of congregations.

The atmosphere of life and ministry in the ARC is set within the boundaries of historic Christian orthodoxy, the ARC’s core values, and an embracing of the evangelical, sacramental, and charismatic streams of the Christian faith.

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.

Jesus was and is a safe place for the dangerous kind. We believe that as Holy Spirit transforms and empowers us we will find ourselves living on the radical edge with God, kicking at the darkness until it bleeds daylight.
