RKAC mission statement:

The mission of Risen King Alliance Church is to reach Rockland County and its surrounding areas for Jesus by being good neighbors, looking outward, sacrificing comfort, building spiritual friendships, and working together with other churches.

The leadership of Risen King Alliance Church has affirmed that the following 5 missional core values will be the defining characteristics of this season of our ministry.

Being Good Hosts Toward Our Non-Christian Neighbors. We enjoy hosting non-Christians who visit our homes and our church. Like Jesus, we enjoy their company and seek to befriend them. These are the neighbors God has given us. We appreciate and delight in their diversity-ethnically, socio-economically, and even religiously. We make every effort to listen to them and learn about their lives. While not adopting their lifestyle and values, we nonetheless refrain from judging their lifestyle and values, leaving that task to the Lord. Our first call, because we love Jesus, is to love and avail ourselves to them.

Servicing Primarily Outsiders, Not Ourselves. Recognizing that the overwhelming majority of people of Rockland County do not know Jesus Christ, we affirm that we exist to serve these very same people by introducing them to new life in Christ, weakening the work of the devil in their lives, facilitating the transforming and healing power of the Holy Spirit, and doing whatever we can to minister to their physical needs. While RKAC will always be a place of refuge and restoration for us, it must never become an escapist enclave for Christians nor a fortress hostile to non-Christians, designed to keep them out.

Willingly Sacrificing our Personal Comfort - We choose to be an organization willing to change and all change is fundamentally about sacrifice. As we envision reaching our non-Christian neighbors and friends in Rockland County, we affirm that we are willing to undertake great personal sacrifices in regard to time, money, and energy as opportunities present themselves. Therefore, we will not value our buildings and facilities above the needs of the people we are trying to reach. We choose to willingly give of our time and energy to serve the ministries of the church. We resolve to give sacrificially of our money in order to see the ministries of RKAC grow and expand. We believe that revival is birthed when God's people choose to make great sacrifices.

Facilitating Spiritual Friendships - Deep meaningful relationships and ministry times are difficult to achieve on Sunday mornings alone. Recent research shows that meaningful spiritual friendships are one of the most important things in personal spiritual growth. We will seek to be a church that fosters opportunities for the development of these spiritual friendships. We choose to have purposeful relationships that will challenge each other as we progress along our individual spiritual journeys.

Seeking to Strengthen and Partner With Other Rockland Churches. We view other Rockland churches not as competitors, but as partners in reaching a lost county. We pray for their growth and success. We welcome the exchange of information, ideas and lessons learned, in the hopes of being wiser about our own initiatives in evangelism and ministries of mercy. We desire to consult with other Rockland churches about their outreach strategies and events, in order that our efforts might better complement theirs.
