Mission Alliance’s identity and work is expressed through its name; Mission Alliance is a part of God’s worldwide church and we have a special calling to diaconia. Diaconia is not primarily an activity or a project related to church or mission work, but a lifestyle Jesus has chosen for his followers. Diaconal service is an expression of gratitude for God’s love to us. By practicing a diaconal lifestyle we build the kingdom of God in the present. We also believe that diaconal work gives hope and points ahead to when all suffering and injustice will end. Diaconia is a calling to serve the poor, the marginalized and the vulnerable in society, including children, people with disabilities, women and minorities. Our strategy is to build a strong alliance against injustice.
