Alliance Logo Explained

The term “fourfold gospel” describes the historic emphasis of the C&MA on the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is our Saviour, our Sanctifier, our Healer and our Coming King. These aspects of the ministry of Jesus are represented in the official C&MA logo. Each element of the logo visualizes one aspect.
