…and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth” – Acts 1:8
One of the ways we work to fulfill the Great Commission at First Alliance is through our Partnership Ministries. We have partnerships both close to home and on the other side of the world. Through these partnerships the people in our congregation are able to take the weight of their kingdom influence and wield it in a place where thy might never be able to go.
