Living the Call Together
We are Family
As part of THE ALLIANCE, a Christ-centered Acts 1:8 family of churches, we are members of a global movement more than 6 million strong.
The South Pacific District (SPD) is more than 100 ethnically diverse churches in Southern California, Arizona and New Mexico working together to reach the lost locally, regionally, and globally.
We invest in leaders to reach their Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Each year across our district we see 1,000s of new Christ-followers make the initial commitment to Jesus Christ, and then be discipled in their new faith.
