God is still writing our story! We would love for you to visit us in person at our weekly worship gathering. We meet every Sunday morning at 10AM at 22625 Atlanta Road, Seaford, DE.

The story of ARAC is not about a building, a program, or a method. It’s about people—people of all ages who need to find the purpose in life that God has given them. We seek to cooperate with God in developing fully devoted followers of Jesus. Simply put, we are real people, with real problems, on real journeys, seeking a real God.

Today, we are a community of people from a variety of backgrounds, interests, and life stories who have a desire to explore what it means to follow Jesus and to actively love our community. We want to be a safe place for believers and nonbelievers to learn more about Jesus while also growing in meaningful relationships with one another.


We believe that there is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

After a challenging career as an adult education teacher and coordinator, she enjoys the somewhat slower pace in the church office. Her role as ministry assistant provides many opportunities to connect with people within the church and to help coordinate ministry activities.

Alliance founder A. B. Simpson had a call from God to reach the lost masses both in New York and around the world. He set up the Missionary Training Institute (MTI) to provide training and resources for men and women God was calling to take the gospel to the world. Today, the C&MA focuses on planting churches in the United States and overseas. Alliance international workers minister among the least reached peoples.
