Our Story

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. Atlanta Road Alliance Church (ARAC) began in 1978 with a small number of families that desired to cooperate with God in developing fully devoted followers of Jesus. This has continued with real people, with real problems, on real journeys, seeking a real God.

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 LOVE God, LOVE each other and LOVE the world around us. We are a safe place, regardless of where you are in your faith journey, to learn more about Jesus while also growing in meaningful relationships with others.

The mission of ARAC is to grow in our capability and willingness to LOVE God, LOVE each other and LOVE the world around us that does not yet know Jesus.

The C&MA

ARAC is part of a group of churches, called the Christian & Missionary Alliance (C&MA) that whole heartedly live based on the truths of the Bible. The C&MA focuses on planting churches in the United States and overseas. Alliance international workers minister among the least reached peoples. 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.
