To tell the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ.

To take care of the physical needs of people who are in need.

These two together, represent the Christian Evangelism mission of ALFA Ministries.

Mankind was created to have fullness of life though God and with God. Life is otherwise incomplete.

The world has grown increasingly separated from our creator to the spiritual and physical detriment of the world.

ALFA ministries believes the world must come again to God.

The only pathway is by accepting God’s son, Jesus Christ, who came to atone for man’s sin.

Our Ministry wishes to explain this to all of the mankind and to further God’s kingdom.
While we are desirous of seeing people saved thought believing and trusting in Jesus Christ, we realize that mankind has very real physical needs.

Unless ALFA ministry attempts to heal the physical suffering of the God’s created; we are not being consistent with God’s directive in missions.

Biblical evangelism requires helping an individual enjoy the spiritual and physical fullness of being one with God.
